Upcycled Bottle Planters

This is how the plastic bottle planters were done.
First I cut the plastic bottle in half...
Then I use some cotton thread to make it prettier. I made two holes, wrapped the bottle with a different thread again and use the holes to put the tread through and hang the bottle-pot. This can be simplified and done in many ways I guess. It's all up to you :)
I use S-hooks to hang pots by pushing hooks in between the fence boards, screw hooks can be use too.
Within next few days I added few more bottle-pots and I may keep adding, it's so addictive!

    I love your pop bottle planters and garden area. I use bottles as mini greenhouses and all sorts of other ways. When my seedlings are ready to go out, I think I’m going to flip my bottles to make pots like yours. I just love how they look on your fence.
