6. Spice up old pots
If you are sick of the same old look for your potted terra cotta plants, add some flare with your favorite beer or soda bottle caps. Choosing a beverage at the store just got a whole lot more interesting!
How to do it:
1. Place a few small drops of super glue on the bottle cap.
2. Press bottle cap onto terra cotta pot for recommended length of time according to super glue package. Space bottle caps according to taste and number of bottle caps collected.
3. Repeat until lip of pot covered with desired amount of bottle caps.

7. Temporary compost container
Still making excuses for not composting yet? Don’t blame the bad smell and lack of motivation to take out scraps every day. The solution is in your morning cup of joe.
We all know that coffee grounds are a welcome addition to the compost pile, but what about the empty coffee containers as a composting aid? Because most come with a snug-fitting plastic lid, these coffee containers are the perfect solution to temporarily storing your compost materials underneath the sink while reducing the smell.
