Beautiful Christmas Garland out of PET Bottles


Have a beautiful Christmas wreath out of PET bottles via your own hands. Take some unused PET bottles and start making a beautiful handmade decoration for this year’s holiday. At the end, your home will look wonderfully ready for Christmas and the environment will thank you as well! Make sure you have:

• scissors;
• PET bottles;
gold spray paint (or any color you prefer);
• nylon thread;
• nails;
• pliers;
• (optional) soldering iron;

Start by using the scissors to leave only the bottom of the bottles. Take each piece and give them a nice golden color with the use of spray paint. Afterward, make cuts in the side, as shown in the picture. Keep doing the cuts and shaping the bottom of the bottles until they achieve the way they are in the photos. Look from above. Does it have that flower or snowflake form? If no, then take the pliers and shape the sides into looking the way they are suppose to.

The next step is to drill a hole through the center of each of the bottles (bottom of bottles to be precise). You can use a soldering iron for this as well. This hole will be required to pass the nylon cord between the pieces of your garland. Pass the thread through each piece of bottle, placing them opposite to each other (look in the picture for guideline), until you have the desired length of the garland. Make a knot and decorate with an elegant red bow.
