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!

Using an X-Acto knife but out the openings as desired. Put stones in the bottom for drainage. ( FREE GRAPHICS MORE PHOTOS HERE)

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

    Is the yarn or string put into the dirt first and lead to the water below ? Would you take it apart to refill with water ?

    Would this be a good way to grow tomato plants once they have germinated?

    Tap water, except in Flint, MI, is perfectly ok to drink. People who can’t afford it are purchasing bottled water unnecessarily.

    In addition billions, not millions, of bottles are overfilling land fills.

    DO NOT BUY WATER, you already buy it once from your local municipality. Thanks, Kit
