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.
Plastic bottles crafts – Create landscapes
