Now we all know how important recycling is for nature and our world. Especially plastic-containing products unfortunately pollute the nature. Therefore, we contribute to recycling by using the products we buy in different areas. This decor idea includes a fantastic room decor making from plastic bottles.

.

.

.

Materials:

- Plastic bottle

- curved knife (utility knife)

- scissors

- thick thread (knitting or jute rope)

- spray paint (you can use any colors you want)

.

.

.

Cut the upper part of the Plastic Bottle neatly with the help of a knife (utility knife). If there are curved places after cutting with a cutter, you can straighten them by cutting with scissors. You can cut the plastic bottle to any size you want. For a longer decor, just cut 2-3 cm from the head. If you want a shorter decor, you can cut the plastic bottle in the middle. This choice may vary according to your own taste.


* note: this step can be dangerous, be careful when cutting the plastic bottle.

.

.

.

Wrap a thick thread (can be knitting thread or jute thread) around the center of the plastic bottle in a random way. You can hide the ends of the thread by tucking them under this part.

Paint it with spray paint and set it aside to dry. You can use any color paint you want. "Matt white spray paint" was used for the decor in the photo. After the paint has dried, you can paint a few more coats if needed. This process depends on the quality of the paint you use.


* tip 1: applying the spray paint from a distance of 20-25 cm will provide a smoother and more beautiful appearance.


* tip 2: spray paints can dry in a few minutes if a thin layer is applied, so you can apply a few more coats of paint over the decor at intervals of a few minutes.


* tip 3: the plastic bottle is so light that it can be difficult to hold it steady when spray painting. That's why you can put a few heavy things into the plastic bottle you cut before painting. So it will be easy to paint.

.

.

After the paint has dried, gently unwind the strands. Your decor made from plastic bottles is ready.

.

.

.

You can illuminate the ready-made decor by putting LED lights or battery-powered candles.

* note: do not use real candles in decors made with plastic bottles.
