Ok here is how to make this for anyone who wants to do it.
take 2 water bottles, make sure one is small and one is a large bottle.
the large bottle will be for the top and small for the bottom.
Cut small bottle in 1/2 keep the bottom part
cut the large bottle about 1/2 of what you cut the small bottle again keep the bottom part(this will be the lid)
(throw away the tops of your bottles or keep and use as funnels. they work great).
once cleaned and dryed, you can use paint, they have paint just for plastic(michaels craft stores)
paint both bottom half of the bottle parts any color you like
let dry.give 2-3 coats of paint
once dried decorate your top and bottom as you like
cover each peice of your container top and bottom with clear spray paint or use a sealer. once dried add a pom pom to top of your lid and your done. you can add anything you want to top of your lid. using hot glue or aleene's craft glue.
now put your lid(large peice) on top of your container(small peice) and you have a cute q-tip holder or tooth pick holder or even use a s a cotton ball holder.

I love it! Is there a special catagory for recycled crafts in this group? If not there should be to better organize the posts.
