14 Jan 10 great ways to up-cycle your empty Laughing Bird jars and bottles
1 – Safe storage for pins and needles
Cut out a round of foam to fit the inside of the jar lid, cover with pretty fabric and glue on. Use this to stick your range of needles and store all your pins in the jar below.
2 – herbs and spices
Design some lovely labels to stick on jars to neatly store of all your favourite herbs and spices.
3 – lanterns
Wrap wire securely around the necks of jars making a loop for a handle. Pop in a night light to make a lantern. Decorate the jar with glass paint to make extra special.
4 – plant support caps
Glue on jar or bottle lids to the tops of plant support bamboo/sticks to protect your eyes whilst gardening.
5 – shakers
Pierce the lids to make little holes and make shakers for salt, icing sugar or anything else that is used sparingly.
6 – cordials
A well washed and sterilised lotion bottle with a pretty label or tie is perfect for homemade cordials.
7 – shed tidy
Keep all your nails, screws, “maybe useful one day” bits and bobs clearly labelled in our range of jar sizes.
8 – in the bedroom
Keep all your hair grips, bobbles, scrunches and bows in jars made beautiful with glass paint decoration.
9 – flavoured oils
The amber glass of our lotion bottles is perfect for storage of home made flavoured culinary oils. Be sure to wash, sterilise and dry the bottle before use.
10 – little pots of earrings
Finally, our tiny 15ml lip balm pots make very cute earring holders for those very easy to lose precious studs.
