Here is a great video that shows you how to recycle and decorate at the same time.
What will you need? Bottles in different colors and sizes, scissors, fabric, buttons, paint, permanent markers, and some string or cord.
How is it done? The flowers are made from the bottom of the bottle (photos 1, 2 & 3) or from the spout (4, 5 & 6).
Remember that you can be creative and add lots more petals in different shapes and sizes.
Flowers made from the top part of the bottle are harder to do (photo number 6).
How do you paint them? You can paint them with a water based paint or with permanent markers. Markers are easier, but the paint will have a deeper color.
How do you put them together? You can put them on a bit of wire and cover that wire in green paper or even paint the wire.
And then what? Make a bouquet for a cool party decoration or make small flowers to make into pins earrings or rings! The options are limitless!
