Do you have a few empty glass coffee bottles around your house that you don’t know what to do with? You can turn them into convenient and stylish repurposed items with a little bit of modding. Here are some creative ideas for upcycling glass coffee bottles you may want to consider:

Create Candle Holders

Store Kitchen Supplies

  • Clean and cut the top of the bottle with a glass cutter.
  • Then, cover the sharp edges with some glue.
  • Fill the bottle with spices, kitchen utensils or condiments.
  • Glue a cork lid to the top of the bottle to keep your items protected.

Make a Flower Vase

  • Cut the neck and bottom of the bottle with a glass cutter, making a vase shape.
  • Sand the sharp edges with sandpaper.
  • Paint the bottle with colors and patterns of your choice.
  • Fill the vase with water and fresh flowers.
  • Hang the flower vase at your window or in your living room.
