Here is a sentence I never thought I would write...I wake up each day now wondering what I'm going to find in the garbage...and what in the world I'm going to do with it. So far...three days into the Earth Day Challenge and it's worked out well. This morning, while using my lotion, it ran out and I thought (ta - da!) what can I do with this? Nothing is simply garbage anymore...ha!

The process was simple. I cut the bottle low on front and long in the back where the charger cord will run through and become the "hook" that hangs the phone at the outlet. I cleaned the bottle after I finished the cuts, moisturizing as I went along and eventually I had a clean, dry bottle.
Once I had it cut out and trimmed up evenly, I measured the hole for the plug and cut it out, too.

I filed the edges to make sure it was smooth. Then, I sandpapered the surface of the bottle to rough it up. At the time, I was thinking of using Mod Podge and fabric, but ended up using my decorative duct tape.
