It’s amazing, how many creative projects you can make using plastic bottles. Greenhouses, kids toys, flower planters, vases, even human size boats. So many creative possibilities that help us recycle plastic bottles. And because I mentioned flower planters, here’s another fun way to recycle plastic bottles: DIY “flower hair” planters. You can make this project using chia or bird seeds, but because we wanted something more colorful we used flowers. For the chia or bird seeds project, you have to wait a couple of days until the plants sprout, and the “hair” of the planter takes shape. If you are using the seed, you have to keep in mind that the soil is kept moist by watering the planter two up to 3 times a day. This DIY project doesn’t need special creative skills. Easy to make, cheap and fun, it’s a good way to bond with your kids and involve them in creative, fun projects.
To get started on your fun DIY idea, you will need: 3 plastic bottles, soil to mix with the flower soil, cutting knife, plastic eyes, a pair of gloves, 3 colorful pom-pom’s, cutting pen, string, craft glue or a glue gun and colorful flowers.
