Reusable Water Bottle and Holder

Posted on September 6, 2014

Here is a new twist on a recycled plastic water bottle holder. I crocheted this water bottle holder using recycled plastic newspaper bags. I cut the plastic bags into 1 inch wide strips using this plarn making tutorial. Here is the free crochet pattern for the plastic bag water bottle holder. But the twist on this water bottle combo is the water container. I inserted a glass Mason jar into the plarn holder to hold the water.

This idea can be used for several different sizes of reusable and recycled glass jars as the plarn holder stretches and fits many sizes of jars and recycled glass bottles. The good thing about using glass is that you don’t need to worry about the plastic breaking down and you actually beginning to ingest the plastic if you reuse the bottle. Here is a recycled pint size jar in the same plastic bag holder as above.

As you can see, a person is able to recycle and reuse many different jars and bottles to provide a water holder and bottle carrier using this idea. I hope you enjoyed this recycled crafting idea!

    Great idea, and the plarn carrier adds protection against breaking.

    So great! It’s handy, looks good and it’s very useful and recycled. Or maybe… upcycled? I don’t know which expression is better.
