Pyrex measuring cup
Wash out the bottle. Remove all labels. Rinse away residue from glue.
Cut the plastic using a craft knife or scissors. The side of our bottle had an interesting texture designed to give the bottle a better grip. We centered the textures grip when cutting so it would be prominent when we formed the bracelet.
|Put plastic in hot water|
Heat water in a Pyrex dish to just below boiling. Place the plastic into the hot water so it becomes soft and pliable. Do not overheat the plastic to the point of melting.
|Form the plastic into a cuff bracelet|
