Upcycled Plastic Bottle Decor Items
From the blogger: "Craft for kids: Recycle Plastic Bottles to Decor Items! Upcycle plastic bottles and straws to create beautiful wind catchers, planters, candle holders! An amazing way to learn about recycling."
Upcycling isn't just trendy and good for the planet, it can also produce truly lovely crafts. This project is a great example of that. Taking something that many people would consider trash and turning it into a unique, handcrafted decor item is incredibly satisfying. This craft is also great fun for kids and can be used as an opportunity for bonding and learning about how to reuse common items that many wouldn't give a second thought.
