As the summer comes to an end, and some of us begin to begrudgingly clean up the cottage to close another great season, we’re likely to collect at least a few empties that remind us of the good times past. Although the days of sipping a beverage on the dock with your feet dangled in the water may soon be over, there are lots of fun ways you can use your empties to create new and exciting projects. These DIYs make perfect additions to your home or cottage, and what’s even better? You can enjoy them all year long.
