Plastic Bottle Flowers

Whether you’d appreciate an idea for a last minute Mother’s Day present, or would just like a fun way to brighten up the house, flowers made from old plastic bottles could be the project for you! There are some really simple tutorials out there and some incredibly complex ones – I’ve saved a little range in the Plastic Bottle Flowers section of our new Upcyling Projects Pinterest board.

But I have to say I didn’t follow any tutorials in the end – I just cut off the tops and bottoms of some bottles and had a play! The brighter decorations were done with Posca paint pens but we also had fun with some permanent markers and with some kids’ paint. I thought about trying to make some kind of bouquet using¬†pipe cleaners or floristry wire, then decided they might be fun additions to the mud kitchen in the garden…¬†
