The past year turned out to be very successful for our bottle crafting community.
We grew immensely in not just daily website visitors and social media followers, but we were able to connect with many people we are thankful to be able to call our friends. Now that the last few days of the year are upon us it’s only natural that we want to reflect and review, as well as plan ahead.
With over 80 DIY Show Off submissions sent in by you and the many recycled bottle crafting articles we have written over the past several years it is always fun to see which posts get the most views.
There are a few articles on this list that almost didn’t get published since I didn’t think they were good enough. Thankfully I went ahead anyway. ;)
Here are the 10 bottle crafting articles that you liked the most in 2014:
