DIY With Empty Tequila Bottles

Recycle or Upcycle?

Well, thanks to Jessica sharing a great hummingbird feeder idea on her blog, Jessica’s Mexico, we’ve put together a Pinterest Board of that and several other projects and kits from around the web that can be put to use with some of your favorite tequila bottles for some creative upcycling.
