I saw a video a month ago showing how to repurpose water bottles into bracelets. I bookmarked it and set it aside for another day since we don’t buy bottled beverages, I have a SodaStream. I was at my cousins today and she had two water bottles on the counter for recycling, and I couldn’t resist and brought them home.
Plastic water bottles with smooth sides with sticker/labels removed
Sticker removal product (like UnDo or GooGone)
Paper- scrapbooking, collage, or any decorative paper
Copper foiling tape – ¼” wide-self adhesive – silver or any color
Masking tape – whatever width you want bracelet
I had all of the supplies at home, even the foil tape, and had leftover paper from my tin can caddy. I taped up a bottle using masking tape and it left behind a sticky mess. I removed the sticky with GooGone and used painters tape, which worked very well. I cut the bottles like they did on the video and cut my paper and assembled it all and finished with copper tape. I know from experience that copper tape is tricky, I always have issues with wrinkles, so I was very careful when applying. The video was well done and she really explained things well. After the first one, the other two were easy.
I am definitely making these again, imagine how easy it would be to have a bracelet for every outfit!
Thank you EcoHeidi for a great video.
