Yes way! Michelle Brand, an eco-designer from Manchester in the UK, repurposes the bottoms of discarded plastic soda bottles to create these breathtakingly beautiful decorative light fixtures, lamp shades, curtains, room dividers, and more.  Ingenious and quite stunning, don’t you agree?

From plastic bottle to blossoms, garlands and fairy lights, it’s up-cycling at its best!

From the pics, it looks like she uses a clothing tag attacher gun for connecting the pieces– much easier than punching individual holes and threading the bottoms with fishing line!!  Sooo whadyathink, DIY potential?  Yay or nay, here’s wishing you all a Happy Earth Day!

These fascinated me as soon as I saw them. After looking closely at the pictures, I tried it myself. They are making water bottles so thin now it was easy to cut with simple scissors. To make the petals a little more realistic, I used my curved manicure scissors to round out the petals. I used the curved scissors to cut round the edge of the petal toward the center, turned it over and did the adjacent petal, which left me with a long thin triangle which I snipped off. I am so going to do something with this fantastic idea!!

I am so excited! So happy I had the chcnae to join! I live in a very, very rural area with no opportunities to get green products! I want to use more green products, but would like the opportunity to try before I buy due to the cost of green products. I am so excited for my box!
