Earth day 2009...Laundry Bottle Pet Food Scoop!! how cool is that...

What you'll need:
Plastic laundry bottle
Felt in your favorite shades
White craft glue
Scissors or a sharp knife
Felt alphabet stickers (optional)

How to make it:
Have a grown up cut the top of the laundry bottle off, leaving the handle in tact.
Remove packaging labels and wash the outside to remove any residue.
Wash the inside thoroughly, making sure that all soap residue has been removed. A good rinse with very hot water will ensure all soap is gone.
If using felt alphabet stickers, stick them to the front of the bottle, spelling out your pet’s name. If you don’t have the felt stickers, simply cut your pet’s name out of felt and glue them to the bottle.
Cut out fun shapes such as bones, biscuits, and paw prints, and glue them all over the bottle.
Let dry completely before using.

Use the top section of the bottle to create a pretty flower bouquet. Make some of our lovely Tissue Paper Flowers and wrap with a sheet of felt. Turn the top of the laundry bottle upside down and insert flowers into the pour spout. Decorate the flower spout handle with stickers.
Save plastic bottles, cans, paper towel rolls, cereal boxes and other recyclable materials to make fun craft projects.
Use your imagination to develop more craft projects from what might otherwise be garbage.
