Craft Challenge: Leaf Earrings

How to make plastic water bottle garden art flowersMy friend Teena, from Serendipitini, and I recently decided to have a little craft challenge on our blogs. We agreed that we would each create a crafty project and tutorial that incorporated re-purposed plastics to share with our readers.

I have to admit, I was a little intimidated about this because Teena is a recycling whiz! I've seen pictures of some of her projects. She can transform bit's and pieces from the hardware store into a fashionable necklacea thrift store plate into one of a kind home decor, or even a suitcase into a simple yet practical display case. So, I was excited to see just what clever project she would come up with for our challenge.

We both set to work and didn't really give any hints about our projects until they were completed. After a little experimentation, I ended up making some yard art flowers with plastic water bottles. I think they turned out pretty cute and may even teach a workshop about how to make them. They are simple to create (the kids could definitely help with this one) and a whimsical way to brighten up your outdoor flower pots.

Teena made a more grown-up project, these beautiful leaf earrings, with the plastic from milk jugs and some copper wire. It's amazing what you can make with materials that most people consider to be trash.
