Ready to go on a picnic?

Ash Monday today, seven weeks before Easter Sunday and it is time for a picnic!


For the picnic we will go to Filopappou Hill next to the Acropolis hill. I thought along with the basket full of foods and all the gooddies that it will be nice to have our bottle of home-made tsipouro or tsipouraki  available to everybody easily!


Thus, I took an old t-shirt in a strong yellow tint , I made a long string of about 15 meters,  and then with use of my scissors and my hands only, I made us a bottle holder, which due its bright color can not be missed!

Remember that refilling your bottle is not just a matter of saving. It is an action of awareness for less garbage and results to a significantly more sustainable behavior.

For this DIY you will need basically ONLY a pair of scissors and your hands 🙂
