Recycle Junk Into Art
Recycled bottles that look like blown glass.
FAUX BLOWN GLASS FLOWERS
Every now and then I get creative and come up with some artsy craft like beading, working with clay, or making Christmas ornaments. Anyway, I got the idea to use the plastic bottles that were about to go in the recycle bin for some big company to recycle. So I thought I'd take a try at making something worthwhile out of trash. Who knows, it just might inspire others to recycle too.
I love looking at the shape of bottles. It seems I see beyond just the bottle and quickly see what else it could be. Well, I saw that the bottom of the bottles also had different designs, like different shaped stars. I went with that and thought they would make a nice center for a flower. So I took the scissors, a candle, and alcohol paint and began to cut, mold, shape, and paint these bottles.
I see a different flower for every bottle shape in my mind first, then I begin to shape them. If you are interested on more detailed instructions on how, or to see many other photos,

Thanks so much for stopping by, Till then, please recycle. Many blessings.
