Here's a simple way to create a cheap pair of safety goggles for your next DIY project. All you'll need are these common household items:
  • An empty, washed 2 liter soda bottle
  • An elastic band
  • A pair of scissors
  • A permanent marker
First thing to do is to cut off the top and bottom of the soda bottle. Now cut through the remaining plastic to turn it into a single plastic sheet. Next, hold the plastic sheet around your face. Using a mirror as reference, outline the goggles with a a plastic marker. Finally, cut them out, attach the elastic band to both sides, and you're done.

Obviously these are not as good as proper safety goggles, but they will come in handy if you need basic protection from minor debris. For more in-depth instructions and additional photos, hit up the full post over at Make.
