Reuse Soda Bottle for a Planter

Today is the first day of April and Momee Friends of Long Island is GOING GREEN all month long. Here is a cute way to reuse your 2 liter soda bottle to make a planter.

All you need to make this adorable planter is:

An empty and washed our 2-liter soda bottle

2 large wiggly eyes

Hot Glue Gun

Scissors

Black Sharpie Marker

 

Directions:

Step 1: After washing out all the soda out of the 2-liter bottle. Let Dry and then cut the bottle in half.

You will be discarding the top half into your recycle bin.

You will need the bottom of the bottle and the cap.

Step 2:  Have your child watch as you hot glue the wiggly eyes on the front of the bottle and the cap onto the bottle as the nose.

Draw a smile onto the bottle with the black sharpie marker.

I used an indoor plant for this Bottle Planter but these bottle planters can be used for indoor or outdoor plants!

Happy #GOMOMEEGREEN Crafting! : )

Here are more ideas from fellow Pinners using a bottle for a planter:
