Easy Recycled Bottle Cat Container

Recycled Bottle Cat Containers make a cute, and best of all FREE craft! I came up with this fun idea after doing a little spring cleaning.

My cat is not feeling well and living in my bathroom right now, which means I’m constantly cleaning that room for him. I found a bunch of old shampoo bottles that I started to trash, but decided to turn them into cat containers instead. I guess my cat inspired me!

Start Fresh This Spring

Spring is the perfect time to clear out your old bathroom products and start fresh! I’m writing on behalf of CVS to let you know they are having an amazing offer on various Suave products.  Now is the perfect time to buy new products for the entire family! I got all of these great Suave products for less than $15.

Here’s what I got at CVS:

  • Suave Ocean Breeze Body Wash for my daughter who loves body wash. This contains mineral-rich sea algae extract, and is infused with Vitamin E, which can help condition her dry skin.
  • Suave Keratin Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner for me! Did you know your hair’s natural keratin protein depletes over time, leading to frizzy and unmanageable hair. This helps restore and tame unruly strands for smoother silky hair.

Go ahead and use up and recycle those half-empty bottles with this fun cat container craft. Then head over to CVS for some great values. Right now get 2 for $6 + Buy 2 and get $2 ExtraBucks rewards with your CVS card.

I think these easy Recycled Bottle Cat Containers would be fun for a kid’s birthday party activity. Just have pre-cut bottles cut and let kids draw their own cat faces on the bottles with a sharpie.

What you’ll need:

  • Shampoo, lotion or body wash bottles (Remove labels with nail polish remover)
  • Sharpie
  • Exacto knife
  • Scissors
  • Sand paper (optional)

Recycled bottle cat container is a simple craft! Easy repurposed shampoo bottles turned into cute kitty cat containers.

  1. Start by drawing a line for the head and ears with your sharpie on the front of the bottle.
  2. On the back, draw the cat’s tail.
  3. Carefully begin cutting out the cat’s ears and move towards the back towards the tail.
  4. Cut as much of the bottle away from the tail with the blade, then use scissors to shape everything nice and neat. If the edges are too rough or sharp, sand down with sandpaper.
  5. Wash out any extra product from the bottle and clean any pen marks.
  6. Draw a cat face and you’re done.

What Should You Do With Your Cat Container?

Here are some fun ideas for how to use your new kitty cat containers:

  • Hang in shower to hold razors or face cleaner
  • Use as a planter
  • Hang on a wall for decor
  • Pencil holders
  • To store headphone and phone chargers

I hope this project inspired you to start fresh and try something new. Don’t miss the great deals for Suave at CVS!

Snowman Plates! Cute Christmas Table Setting Decorations

When it comes to decorating for the holidays, you can’t get any cuter than these Snowman Plates for Christmas Table Setting Decorations! I’ve featured cute snowman plate table settings in the past and have always wanted to come up with my own. When I got the Living Locurto Team together this fall, I created a Snowman Plate challenge and excited to reveal what we all came up with for you today!

Making snowman plates for your Christmas table is super easy! I packed up a bunch of white and light gray plates, various cloth and paper napkins, carrots, blueberries, flatware, ribbon and anything else I could think of that could be used for making funny snowman place settings. I then gave everyone a set amount of time and we started decorating!

It was so much fun to decorate snowman plates! These would not only make gorgeous table decor but a fun Christmas game with your family. I think my husband would really get into this tablescape challenge too! I hope you enjoy the ideas my team and I came up with at our retreat.

Another decorating challenge was to use fruit for table decorations. Either in a centerpiece, place card holder or as general place setting decor. Since red and navy was my choice of color scheme, we used bright red apples, pears and blueberries throughout our different tablescapes.

DIY Apple Candle Holders

Cut the top off of an apple and hollow out the inside with a spoon to make room for a candle. Squeeze lemon juice over the apple to keep it from browning right away before inserting your candle. Use battery operated votive candles if you plan to keep them on for a long period of time.
