If your foresee enjoying a few nights out in your backyard with your friends now that the weather allows it, perhaps you can spruce up your back yard a little with an easy DIY. There’s no doubt that beer will be consumed out there, so this clever project reuses those empty bottles and turns them into tiki torches to light up the area and create an awesome ambience overall.

We also have some cool ways to reuse plastic bottles so don’t be too quick to throw things away!
