Stop! Don't throw out those beer bottles! Yes, they may be a reminder of the poor decisions you made last night and yes, they may be responsible for that killer hangover you have today, but there are so many great DIY things you can do with those dead soldiers.

The Pinterest world has recently become obsessed with cutting beer bottles in order to make cups, but even if you're afraid of this fiery process, there are tankards of possibilities that you can create with your bottles. Beer labels — and even the glass bottles themselves — have grown increasingly beautiful in the foamy golden age of craft beer in which we currently find ourselves. So hold onto those lovely artisanal lager bottles that were too pretty for you to part with and upcycle them into something great!
