There’s a whole world of pop tab work, and the level of craftmanship is stunning. Pinterest is a good place to start exploring this craft if you’re interested, there’s even a tutorial or two.


Speaking of getting crafty with recyclables, I’ve had a beautifully-shaped almond milk bottle kicking around for awhile … just couldn’t part with it. I knew someday a project would come along that I’d want to use it for and I was right. I got the opportunity to try some cork-shaped LED lights (if you’re a regular reader, you know I love LEDs), so I decided to experiment and combine my lights with some knitting and that beautiful bottle.

There’s no pattern, I started with 20 stitches and then added/dropped stitches as I went. The cork-shaped lights came well-packaged in a small box, are good quality and easy to figure out – you charge them via USB and you turn them on by twisting the light. Both lights came with a charge, so I could use them right away.

If you’re looking for a simple and quick way to re-use a wine bottle or decorate with light accents, this set can be a good approach … and it you’re crafty, a nice starting point.

* I received a set of OxyLED 2 Pack Bright Cork Shaped USB Rechargeable LED Wine Bottle Light in exchange for writing a review on the blog. This is a post that contains affiliate links.
