Make safety glasses from plastic bottles

I came across this idea on Make. It's another great way to repurpose and recycle plastic bottles into a safety shield or safety glasses for when using an angle grinder or cutting metal and tile, etc.




Remove the label and then use a sharp craft knife to cut off the top and bottom of the bottle. Put the top and bottom aside for now, as there are plenty of ways to reuse these in our recycled craft section.

Carefully cut down the middle of the bottle in order to make a sheet of plastic.

Wrap the sheet around your or someone else’s face, and use a marker to outline and design your mask.

Cut a small slit at each corner of the mask about 1 cm down from the top edge.

Weave each end of a thick elastic band through the slits - going out of the inner slit to the front side, then back in through the outer slit. Adjust your mask, and it’s ready to wear.
