A really Green Christmas Tree
Have a look at the Christmas Tree made from 1000 beer bottles in Shanghai, China, in 2009. The designers used green-colored beer bottles to build this statue. This was done with the intention to encourage people to adopt eco-friendly ways. The green-colored bottles provided a fantastic green hue, which made the tree look all the more beautiful.
Now you will need sandpaper to polish the sharp edges of the cut bottle. Place a candle in the mouth of the bottle (narrower end) and put it wherever you like. Your candle stand is ready!
In fact there are websites selling these kinds of tumblers and they cost bomb. But it is simple to make them at home. Polish the sharp edges of the remaining part of the bottle and your beer glasses are ready. You can also have these tumblers etched with some funny quotes or labels.
Now, you will need a sturdy string. Attach one end of the string to the ball and the other end to the inner base of the beer bottle. Make sure the string is small enough, so that the small steel ball hits the glass, when held upside down. Hang it upside down.
Just make sure you polish the edges of the bottles, so that the sharp edges do not hurt. You can place your favorite flowers in here!
You can also store oil or liquid in the bottle. Drill a hole in the cork and fix it in the mouth of the bottle, it facilitates the easy flow of the liquid.
Once you remove the labels, sterilize the bottles thoroughly and let them dry completely. Now, the bottles are safe to store your home beer. Simply repeat the process and continue using the old beer bottles!
This is not all, there are many more creative ways to use beer bottles. You can make a beer bottle chandelier, use them in your garden walls or just bury them half way in a sand pit in your garden, it looks unique. So you see, beer bottles are more useful than just satiating your thirst for a chilled beer! Cheers!
