DIY Projects Using Plastic Bottles
We recycle because we increasingly care about the environment. But we overlook a very important aspect: instead of throwing it away, even if in a selective manner, we can repurpose many of this waste. It only takes a little imagination and some inspiration. This is the very reason why we are showing you a series of DIY projects using plastic bottles, the waste we trip on everywhere we turn and which we incessantly produce, without considering the repurposing option. Below you can see what a simple plastic bottle can easily turn into.
First of all, plastic bottles can get countless new applications thanks to the material they are made of: resilient, flexible, transparent and food safe. For this very reason, the very first project we are looking at is using these bottles for vertical gardens. Each of us crave for a green pocket, whether we live in a house or a flat. The image below is telling for the potential plastic bottles have in this regard.
A chandelier – something you would have never thought of. It takes a bit of courage to hang something like that on the ceiling, but leaving prejudice aside, ingenuity sparks your friends’ envy so do not shrink from letting your ideas loose.
Sticking to lighting, this lamp made of plastic spoons looks impressive and is an extra proof imagination can work wonders. The other picture showing a bouquet lamp is equally telling.
You can also use pets to store personal things. In this case, you can turn into small containers to keep toothbrushes, earbuds and other personal hygiene things.
If you want a little intimacy, plastic bottle can easily turn into a discrete room divider. At the same time, you can build a fence out of plastic bottle, except that neighbors will become even more curios. Plastic caps can also create a curtain hanging at the entry to protect you from insects.
Returning to garden, other than improvised containers, plastic bottles can take on new practical functions, such as a sprinkler to use for watering vegetables, fruits and flowers.
If you have kids in the house, they will certainly enjoy seeing how a plastic bottle turns into a toy under their very eyes, as shown in the images below.
