DIY recyling projects are so cool, not only for environmentally friendly reasons but for the fact that you can turn your trash into something new. We’ve written posts before on how you can recycle your PET bottles in home decor before, but it turns out they are quite useful in the garden as well. Therefore, we’ve gathered some amazing plastic bottles crafts that would give your backyard a whole new look.

Plastic bottles crafts – A ladybug

You can transform plastic bottles into a ladybug friend. The more bottles you have, the bigger your ladybug can be. You need to paint the bottom of the PET bottles and stick them into the ground. Pile up some soil to give your decor volume and create a nice 3D look. To form the body you need red bottles and for the head – black. The dots and the line between the wings are black, as well.
