We are always creating fun and unique items here at The Shabby Tree. It’s always fun to get creative with everyday recycled items. We have been saving a lot of water bottles here at The Shabby Tree and I thought it would be fun to turn a few into some flowers.
The supplies that I’ll be using are:
1. Recycled water bottles
2. X-acto knife
4. Spray paint ( Heirloom White)
5. Pom poms
The first step is to remove the label from the water bottle.
The next step is to cut the water bottle. I cut mine just below the grooved lines on the water bottle as shown in photo above.
You’ll be using the top part of the water bottle for this flower. The next step is to cut strips into the water bottle.
You’ll want to cut the strips going around the entire water bottle. You’re strips can be as wide or as thin as you want.
Once you have your strips cut you’ll then create a point or a round end to each strip.
Your strips will stay outward if you create a fold or bend in the plastic.
I want my strips to have a little curl to them so I used my fingers to roll the strips and create a slight curl.
The next step is to spray paint the bottle. You can make your flowers any color that you want. I’m using a Heirloom White by Rust-oleum. These will be perfect painted yellow for a Sunflower.
Once the bottle is spray painted you can glue the pom pom into the center. I ended up spray painting a large white pom pom yellow.
These are so easy to make and can be added to anything. I hope you’ll get creative and give these fun and unique flowers a try.
