Plastic Bottle Flowers

I have been meaning to do this craft for a few years. Sad that I am just now doing it huh? Oh well. I got this idea from my sister Jamie in 2010. She is so cleaver. I went to visit her and she was making them and I thought they were so cute. I finally had a place to put them, so I finished the project.  Always feels good to complete another project.

How do you make them? Well... first you take a plastic bottle. 

Then you cut the bottle towards the cap end.

Cut lines for the pedals....

Then fold them over. 

Paint them. I painted mine to match my living room. 

Poke thumb tacks through the cap and stick them on the wall.

So glad I finally finished this project and found a place for it! Not the best lighting, but I love the way it looks on my newly painted grey wall. Thanks Jamie for the super cute idea!

that's so damn clever! I have a friend that made a window shade with painted bottle bottoms. They were super cute.
