Nothing says "love" like Re-using :)!

I stumbled upon a really cute craft idea by Jill Dubiens today, so I thought I would share it with you:

This is such a cute and simple way to re-use plastic waste for Coke drinkers.  The tops are seasonal Coca-Cola bottles (13.5 oz.) and the bottoms are, of course, red Solo cups.  All you need is glue to attach them to each other and you're all set!  Well, and gumballs to fill the bottles, of course.

I tried finding a different source for the bottles, but all I could come up with is a 5oz. size at Hobby Lobby.  That's not large enough and, well, it's also Hobby Lobby.  If you don't have any red Solo cups on hand, though, instead of buying them get some cardboard cones, cut the ends and paint them red.  It's much more eco-friendly :).  If you don't have any bottles or cups on hand, then you can get the 5oz. cups and cardboard cones from a craft supply shop and paint all of the red bits.

Whichever way you choose to make them, they really couldn't be any simpler!

Do you have any favorite ideas for do it yourself Valentine's Day gifts that you'd like to share?  If you make these, please share a picture of how they turned out.  I'd love to see it!
