Don’t know what to do with all of those plastic bottles? Turn them into this beautiful and colorful plant pot! It’s an excellent way to repurpose these plastics that often end up in landfills. And it’s a wonderful piece to brighten up your gardening space! What’s good about this art project is that you can have fun while showing your creativity, and at the same time upcycle waste. This idea of creating a DIY flower pot made from plastic bottles is by Crafty BOB on youtube. Watch the video below for the full instructions.
Get a big plastic bottle and remove the label. Using a marker, make a circle around the bottle just below the middle. Once marker, cut using a cutter. Then clean the edges using a pair of scissors.
Using your scissors, cut the petal of the flower pot. Make 6 petals by cutting the plastic bottle vertically up until the middle. Once cut, curve the ends of each petal with your scissors.
Fold all of the petals outward. Make sure to fully bend each one and it will open upward. Press each petal lightly so it will open downward.
Get the bottom part of the plastic bottle and mark just above the feet of the plastic bottles. Then cut it using a cutter and clean using a pair of scissors. Using the bottle cap, mark a circle on the feet. heat the tip of your screwdriver and use it to cut the circle.
Remove the bottle cap from the flowered plastic then insert it into the feet of the plastic bottle. Once inserted, put the cap back on.
Using spray paint, paint your DIY pot. Once done, set it aside and let it dry. When it’s completely dry, get the screwdriver and heat the tip again. Then create 4 holes on the neck of the bottle for the drain. You now have your own DIY pot from plastic bottles.
