Looking for DIY uses for empty pill bottles? If they’re just laying around, put them to good use with an upcycling project or two! I did some decluttering recently and found a stash of empty pill bottles. I didn’t realize we’ve collected a lot through the years. I didn’t want to throw them out since they are on my list of things to never throw away. So what to do with them? Well, recycle pill bottles for DIY crafts and projects, of course.
Repurposing Ideas: Uses for Empty Pill Bottles
1. Button Organization
I bet you didn’t think you could use pill bottles to corral and stack those buttons neatly. The supplies on the tutorial show plastic storage tubes, but pill bottles will work perfectly in this DIY project too
2. Concealed Key Storage
Glue a rock to a pill bottle and you have yourself a concealed key storage. No one would think of searching random rocks in your garden so this is much better than hiding your key under the mat
3. Pill Bottle Survival Kit
Survival kits have to be handy and portable. It’s a good thing you have pill bottles to organize and store them in.
4. Moisturizer/Shampoo or Conditioner Container
Going on a trip? Don’t worry about airline guidelines on liquids by using empty pill bottles for storage. You can use them to store shampoo, first aid ointments, and other things to help you pack light for your trip
