Simple Pill Bottle Wreath Ideas
My first list is full of simple pill bottle wreaths. I figured we’d start off with the basics and work out a way up. If you plan to make this yourself, keep your eye out for any style or ideas you like. You can incorporate anything you want into your wreath; the sky is really the limit. So get a pen and paper to write down the ideas that jump out to you.
1. Pill Bottles with Green Bow – I figured this wreath would be perfect for kicking things off. Its made entirely of glued-together pill bottles forming a perfect circle. To cap it off(pun intended), they added a pretty green bow to make it festive. How cool!
2. Orange Wreath – This one is perfect if you have plenty of prescription bottles lying around or if you work in a pharmacy! This pharmacy was decorated by creating this adorable wreath made with recycled pill bottles. They are each the same solid orange color, so it goes together nicely.
3. Fluffy Pill Wreath – They used a mesh base for this beauty and then glued syrup bottles in a circle around the form. Then they offset pill bottles in between them. I love this! It’s perfect for any nurse’s home.
4. Orange Snowflake Wreath – This one is simple but so cute! They glued together orange pill bottles(the most classic color) in a shape similar to a snowflake and then finished it off by adding some sparkly snowflakes to the front.
5. Classic Christmas Wreath – If you are a fan of the classic evergreen wreath that you see everywhere during Christmas, this is the wreath idea for you! They took a simple evergreen wreath form and glued the pill bottles in a circle.
6. Cap Wreath – This adorable wreath is one of the best examples of recycling the old and making it new. They strictly used the white caps from different pill bottles to create their base and added a big bow and a red Merry Christmas sign. Too cute!
7. Pop Of Color Wreath – If you’ve gotten this far and wondered by no one has used any extra medication for a pop of color, you are not alone. Que this beauty! They not only used the pill bottles to surround the wreath, but they used pills as cute holly berries.
8. Pharmacy Wreath – This pharmacy used white pill bottles and arranged their caps inward to create a beautiful circle that they decorated with a large bow.

It really makes you appreciate the medical staffs we have around the world!

10. Clear Bottled Wreath – These wreaths really blow my mind…I would have never thought about using leftover bottles to make a wreath. This one tied little bows around the top of each to put its cuteness over the top.
11. Pill Door Hanger – Here, we have a 3 layer wreath with green and red mesh intertwined into it. They even added 3 little snowflakes to hang from the bottom for added Christmas spirit!

16. Jar Wreath– This may be funny for those who work in the medical field. It’s completely made of pee jars! Too much? I don’t think anything is too much for someone who works in a hospital.

You are obviously going to need some pill bottles for this project, so find as many as you can. Depending on the size of the wreath form you bought, you may need as many as 20-30. Once you have those, we can get started.
