Unique Planters From Soda Bottles

77,062 Views
Here are three pretty ways to upcycle soda bottles and convert them into lovely planters! Using various sizes of bottles there are a whole variety of indoor plants you can use these for. There's even one that waters itself! They take no time at all to make and can be a pretty edition to your kitchen or anywhere with some light that allows them to flourish!
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy
Using an X-Acto knife but out the openings as desired. Put stones in the bottom for drainage. (The graphics shown are available as free download on the blog post listed at the bottom of this article.)
These can be made using a variety of sizes of plastic bottles.
This is a self watering planter! It uses heavy yarn to draw water up into the dirt.
This shows how to set up your self-watering planter.
This uses a slim soda bottle and would be perfect for plants! Permanent marker was used to decorate it.
I use a wipe off marker to mark where I will cut. CLICK LINK BELOW TO SEE MANY MORE

    As a cub scout leader I have to help the boys make terrariums - this will be a great starting point. Thank you!

      @Tandy Johnson Bobo this is an awesome idea. I also saw a posting here a while back where the gal bought a bunch of matching-sized picture frames with glass at the dollar store. She glued them together to form squares or triangular shaped sides and glued a bottom piece on, then proceeded to fill with dirt and plants. It would cost more than the bottles, though, and wouldn't do as much for saving the planet from plastic infestation. The self-watering idea is great.
