If you love plants but don't want to spend a lot of money on them this summer, try making your own garden planters. The Plastic Bottle Hanging Planters are so easy to make that even your kids can help. Use some old plastic water bottles for the base of your DIY planters. Once they're painted, no one will be able to tell what they used to be!
After your water bottle crafts are dry, place your plants in them and hang them in a tree or from your front porch to display them. Your kids will be so proud of their work!

Estimated CostUnder $10

Adorable, and I love using recycled materials! We are looking for a craft for craft night, and I bet this will be perfect. Thanks!

You can be so versatile with flower pots made from recycled containers like plastic bottles and cans. You can punch holes in the items, create spiraling designs to decorate them with, and add luminaries just to start the conversation. The sizes are so versatile with 20 oz and 2L bottles being just a few options. Cans can range in size from small tomato paste to large coffee cans that you can put larger plants in on a sturdier branch.

Anything that upcycles and is also useful as well as pretty is a good thing! I am wondering if you could use two bottles, one inside the other for extra strength ... You could even embellish your paint job with another color,of,paint, or put ribbon on the edge. Great project!

These are fun and practical. I plan to make several and paint them the same color and then hang them at regular interval along our fence. It will really brighten up the fence. Have you tried soda bottles? Will they hold the paint?

These are so cute! I'll definitely be making these with my niece.
