1. Make creative plant pots from recycled plastic bottles and containers

Plastic bottles can feel like an inescapable part of our lives. And personally, I hate throwing them away, knowing they might not always be recycled. This clever idea for a vertical hanging garden incorporates the top halves of 2-liter plastic bottles painted with various beautiful, bright patterns. Perfect for growing herbs, you can set up your own mini hydroponics system to ensure your fresh greens get a consistent water intake. Disposable water bottles and straws come in handy here. This is a brilliant way to use old plastic bottles that won’t require any additional expense to set up.

These fun decorative planters are perfect for your patio or backyard deck. Make the handle of an old milk or juice bottle a “nose” and draw a face on an old milk or juice bottle. For added appeal, you can use old fabric as a bandana. Finally, when you add beautiful blooms to these planters, they look like lavish hats or hairstyles. This boho DIY project is fun and easy to make. Just like in real life, every face can be unique.
