Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.

    I have tried this. It did not attract mosquitoes but it did catch those little bees that hang around your soda drinks.

Coca-Cola pastel bottle vases - I'm guessing since she spray painted the inside, she's not using water in them? I'm not sure how one can evenly paint inside such a small opening??? But i like the look - #pastel #vase #painted #coke #bottle #upcycle #bottles #paint #glass #crafts - ≈√

DIY enamel bottles from Martha Stewart. Enameled Bottle How-To Dishwasher-safe enamel paint is sold at most crafts stores. Wash the bottle inside and out with soapy water; let dry. Pour in a small amount of the paint's surface conditioner, which primes the glass for the enamel. Swirl to coat fully, then pour out excess. Stand bottle upright, and dry for an hour. Pour in enough enamel to easily coat the inside. Swirl, and return excess to container for reuse. Dry bottle upside down on a paper towel for 48 hours, periodically wiping excess enamel from the rim with a damp cloth during the first hour.
