DIY Apple Treat Cups from Recycled Plastic Bottles


I recently saw this idea for recycling a plastic soda bottle into an apple treat cup on Pinterest, and I thought it was beyond adorable – not to mention pure genius!  I just knew that ya’ll would love it too, and just couldn’t wait to share it.

Malia from Yesterday on Tuesday is the one who thought up this craft, and I think that the finished product is so super cute.  Way to keep those plastic bottles out of the landfill and create something adorable in the process!

You really don’t need much to pull if off.  You don’t have to use Red Hots either – you can use any kind of red candy. Red jelly beans, hot tamales, red skittles, etc.  You get the picture.



Supply List: 12 oz plastic drink bottles, red spray paint, a sharp knife or kitchen scissors, green leaf cutouts (either with a tool like above or hand-cut), green pipe cleaner or twist ties, red candy, clear treat bags, & glue.



Head over to see the original post by Malia for detailed instructions on this fantastic DIY project!

    What a wonderful idea. How long does it take for the paint smell to go away?
