Upcycling plastic reduces the amount of waste that gets to the landfills. Using this waste plastic into something creative, not only helps the environment to reduce it's waste, but also helps us to be a little more creative in using our ideas to beautify our garden.

Step 1: Take any plastic bottle of your choice. Rinse and clean it and let it dry.

Step 2: Remove the label and with the help of a cutter cut it into half. We will require the top and the bottom part of the bottle.

Cut the bottle as shown.

Step 3 :For the back tyres we will require 2 bottle caps. You can take it from any bottle available to you.

Paint the entire cap white you can use Chalk Paint or Acrylic Paint.

Once completely dried paint the circumference black.

With the help of a marker draw lines on the bottle cap.

Once done it should look something like this.

Follow same steps for the front tyre as well. For this I have used a container lid. You can use anything similar.

Once done stick 2 icecream sticks on either side using glue.

Make a small hole using a cutter and insert an icecream stick as shown. And paint it.

Paint all the parts with the colour of your choice.

Stick 2 icecream sticks together as shown. Using mould or glue to stick all the parts as shown below.

Stick the parts as shown. I have used mould for sticking.

I have used 3D glitter for making design and a ribbon for decorating you can decorate the way you want to.

Add some water, plants/ flowers and your tricycle is Ready.

    I will try this also as I do Fairy Garden scenes. This is so cute and with the plant it is pretty too. Thanks for sharing as I wonder how others get such clever ideas to make things out of "junk".
