If you have a bunch of plastic bottles lying around your kitchen, don’t dunk them in the trash can just yet. Because the DIY junkie in me leaves no trash unturned, I’ve got you two super cool ways to recycle your old plastic bottles, and make the best use of them!

Step 1: Cut 2 bottles in half, one bigger than the other, depending on what you are going to store inside it. I placed my tallest makeup brush in the first one, and used it as a measurement to cut the other bottle.
