When you’re in college, let’s face it, you don’t have money to be buying expensive glassware (especially when you’re around a bunch of drunk people who don’t know how to keep a hold of their shot glasses and cups!

We stumbled across this DIY and think it is an awesome one! Maureen Cyrenne posted this DIY and we think that everyone should try it out.

This is a great alternative to buying glassware! Use your empty beer bottles and turn them into your new glassware!! It’s cheap, fun, and unique. Plus, if one gets broken it’s really easy to make a new one.
