Crafty: Cell Phone Charging Station From A Lotion Bottle

Ashley over at Make It Love It was tired of leaving her cell phone on the floor while it charged. The phone got grungy, and it was sort of an eyesore. She decided to get crafty and do something about it! Her solution? An upcycled cell phone charging station made from a plastic bottle.

In her tutorial, she shows you how to transform an old plastic bottle into a cute cell phone charger that hangs right from the outlet! She used a lotion bottle, but pretty much any plastic bottle that’s big enough to hold your phone will do the trick. This project is sweet, simple, and best of all it’s upcycled! Click here to check out more pictures and the complete how-to!

What I like about this charging station is not only that it’s upcycled, but by hanging the phone right by the plug, you’ll be more likely to remember to unplug that charger when it’s done powering up your phone. Bye bye, vampire power!
