Jewelry Organizer

Simply cut the bottles and use a stick to create the stand. Keep your jewelry and accessories organized with this chic piece. This organizer makes dressing up faster since you can easily see which pieces match your outfit.

Quirky Chandelier

A bit similar to the droplight we've featured using old utensils, this charming chandelier will surely catch the attention of guests. Make sure you ask help from an electrician when it comes to finalizing the wiring and electrical connections.

Vertical Garden

Turn your dream of having a small garden at home into a reality. Start a small vertical garden using old plastic bottles. This project will be perfect in condo homes.

Cute planters

If you simply want to add a touch of green to your space, you can create hanging planters like this one. Use big bottles for this project so it can hold the soil needed by your plant.


For those who want to take their creativity to the next level, this project is challenging and fulfilling! You'll need a thick yarn or thread that can hold the plastic together.
