Plastic Bottles ReUSE

!!! Plastic Bottles !!!
There are too many plastic bottles discarded everyday. Time to put another man's trash to good use. Here are some beautiful reuse ideas :) 

For each project image, I have included links to tutorials and/or additional information. All of these projects can be done at home and require few additional materials to construct.

Please post your own great plastic reuse bottle projects! Thank you for visiting my blog.

Cascading flowers = These beautiful cascading flowers were designed by the amazing artist Michelle Brand using the bottoms of plastic bottles. All that is needed to construct this beautiful display is scissors, clear plastic bottles, some sort of punching tool, and string. See the below tutorial for details. 


JOY = This lovely plastic bottle coin purse is sure to bring joy to your day. It was designed by the artist Zitta Schnitt. She has been so kind to provide a tutorial for public use (see below). All you need is scissors, 2 x 2 liter bottles, thread, a needle, and a zipper. :)


Green = This plastic bottle greenhouse is a affordable and unique way to store your seedlings and other precious greens, with a bonus of impressing your neighbors and friends. Below is a fantastic tutorial. 


TINY GREENS = This little plastic bottle herb garden only requires scissors, soil, seeds, a few plastic bottles, and a wee bit of patience. See below for a tiny tutorial.


Funky = This funky mobile was designed by an European artist. I cannot find his name so if you know please post. It looks like he used fishing line, a punch, scissors, a plastic bottle or two, and perhaps an iron. 


EFFICIENTLY AESTHETIC = Recycled plastic bottles can be wall mounted to create a clever and efficient newspaper holder. Scissors, screws, a punched metal strip, plastic bottles, and a drill will likely do the trick. It also looks like a rubber strip of sorts was added for extra support.


PARTY = These fantastic plastic bottle blossom lights were designed by the fabulous artist Michelle Brand. LED lights, scissors, a punch, plastic bottles, and glue are the required ingredients.


LIGHT IT UP = Light up your favorite room with this brilliant chandelier designed by Michelle Brand. All you need is scissors, plastic bottles, fishing line, a punch, and patience.


THE SOUND OF SILENCE = Create an indoor plastic bottle wall divider to add privacy and muffle distraction in any room. This wall will help maintain a sense of spaciousness yet provide enough barrier to invoke privacy. See below for a fantastic tutorial.
