looking for a way to reuse plastic bottles? here’s a easy, pretty way to give new life to something that may have ended up in the land fill.
clear plastic bottle
circle hole punch (i used 7/8″)
glossy spray paint
hot glue gun
rhinestone, bead, jewel, etc for the center
rinse out your bottle several times to make sure it’s nice and clean.
remove the label and cut off the top and bottom. then cut a slit all the way to the top so you can unroll the cylinder (or what’s left of the bottle). throw the top and bottom in the recycle bin :o)
use your hole punch to punch out circles. i used 5 circles for each flower.
one bottle yields a LOT of circles!
spray paint one side of each circle. make sure they completely dry.
next, using a small dot of hot glue, attach two circles together. the circles will have a slight curve to them. i glued them so that they curved upwards for a fun 3D effect.
*if you’re using a hot temp glue gun, it will melt/warp your circles a little bit. i used hot temp glue gun and it turned out fine, but a low temp might have been better…*
attach a 3rd plastic circle. keep going around attaching circles until a flower is formed.
i used 5 circles total for each flower.
add a rhinestone to the center and you’re done!
i then glued them to a cute little bag to make this fab little clutch.
