How To Make a Flower Pot with a Plastic Bottle
Do your plastic bottles need a second life? Here’s a fun project! Upcycling plastic bottles by transforming them into beautiful flower pots is an easy way to repurpose these bottles. Depending on the materials you have at home, flower pots can be made within minutes. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make a flower pot with a plastic bottle.
Step 1: Collect Materials
You will need the following materials to make one flower pot:
- One clean plastic bottle
- A pair of scissors or a cutter
- Something to decorate the flower pot such as ribbon, colorful craft paper, or stickers
Step 2: Prepare the Bottle
Once all the materials are gathered, take the clean plastic bottle and use the scissors or a cutter to cut the bottle in half. The top part of the bottle is the part above the shoulder line of the bottle. This will become the pot’s outer layer. The bottom part of the bottle is the part below the shoulder line of the bottle. This will become the pot’s inner layer.
Step 3: Decorate
Once the bottle is cut in two, you can decorate the outer layer as much as you want. Use chalk to paint the bottle or cover it with colorful craft paper, ribbon, or stickers.
Step 4: Put Everything Together
Once you finished decorating the outer layer of the bottle, place the inner part of the bottle (which is the bottom part) inside the outer layer. Make sure that the inner part is centered in the outer layer. Use a piece of tape to secure the two layers together and your flower pot is ready.
Step 5: Plant and Enjoy
Now you can add soil or a potting mix and add your favorite flowers or plants. Once the soil or potting mix is in the pot, water them until the water reaches the bottom of the pot and watch your flowers or plants thrive.
Congratulations! You have just made a flower pot with a plastic bottle.
Making a flower pot with a plastic bottle is a great way to upcycle plastic bottles and give them a new life purpose. It is a fun activity that will allow you to unleash your creativity and enjoy your own handmade flower pot.
