For all types of drinks that come in a glass bottle, such as water, soda, and the occasional wine (celebratory or not), there are many creative ways that glass bottles can be reused in spectacular fashion. Here are 12 ways that glass bottles can and have been reused!

1) Flower Vase

Simply remove the tags of any soda bottle, rinse the inside of the bottle, and add any exterior decorations of the bottle of your choosing. Fill it with water, and then you have your own vase! In this picture, the vase is used for beautiful red tulips.
