Plastic Flower Lights for festive season: A DIY Project

Can you imagine any purpose of used aerated softdrink plastic bottles? Yeah, I know most of the people specially kids make pen or pencil holders or stands out of them.
One more easy and quick use of these is in making of colorful flowers to decorate the room walls, vases, garlands etc.

Lemme explain you the things required in this project.
1.    Plastic coke/pepsi/soda or any other drink bottle
2.   A scissor
3.   Acrylic pearl or metallic paints of your choice or faux stained glass color for a glassy effect
4.   And above all a little patience…. : )
Making is again very simple. Remove the cap and cut the bottle  as shown in the pics below.
 Now, cut the petals out of it and it is really easy to shape them as the bottle material is not so hard. Large size petals should be cut in starting so that you can cut them or trim more easily to make equal petals.
Fold the petals in outward direction and hold them there by pressing them in that direction. As a flower shape has come to your piece, you can paint it from outside to give a glassy look or oteherwise paint them from inside to have a normal look.
Use this recycled bottle thing to brighten up your house and garlands with lights on Christmas/New Year and all the year around…whenever you feel like……………… : ) agoodstuff
