Spruce up your windowsill in 30 minutes with these DIY Soda Bottle Planters and your favorite succulents. All you need is a little paint.
The other day my husband brought home a soda for each of the kids. They were, of course, super excited to have their own soda. Once the kids were done with their soda, they tossed them in the recycle bin.
I saw them in there and thought it’d be fun to create a project using some of the things in the recycle bin. I grabbed the soda bottles out of the trash and washed them out so we could make a fun project.
For this project you will need:
DIY Soda Bottle Planters
Once your soda bottle is rinsed and dried, use the pen blade or scissors and cut the top half of the soda bottle off the top and save the bottom.
Paint the bottom of the soda bottle with black paint and a foam brush. I ended up doing 2 coats, making sure to let the first coat dry completely before adding the second.
Use a smaller paint brush and add some fun designs with white paint to give the soda bottle some character.
Once the planters are completely dry, add soil and plants to the planters. I found some succulents for about $2.50 at my grocery store and added them to the soda bottles.
These not only make a fun addition to my kitchen windowsill, they will make a great gift for the plant lovers in my life. Won’t they be a cute birthday gift?
I was excited I could add this project to all the other fun recycled crafts from some really awesome crafters!
Can you picture one of these planters in your home? What type of plant would you put in it?
