Gardening 'upcycle' projects

Since Bre is out of school today and there is no way she is going to let me do my run, we are going to work on some gardening. This week (for our area) is the week to start our tomatoes and peppers indoors and since I have been collecting 2-liter bottles, toilet paper, and paper towel rolls, this is what we are hoping to accomplish.
