Plastic bottle crafts are great to use if you want to make affordable home decor. In fact, a repurposed plastic bottle can actually produce some pretty classy accessories. Of all the recycled materials that we have in our homes, plastic bottles or containers have to be one of the most abundant. We have detergents and cleaners, soda and water bottles, shampoos and conditioners…..you get the picture! I found a few ways that you might want to use them. Some of these are hard to believe that they are actually made from plastic bottles. So, prepare yourself to be amazed!
Plastic Bottle Crafts
Using plastic bottles in decorating is super helpful in areas that you might worry about breakage. Having plastic decor instead of glass is perfect for kids or outdoor areas. The first ideas is actually showing how to use a plastic bottle in a more complex project. However, the rest of the plastic bottle crafts use the actual bottle in the end design.

Make Knit Covers For Plastic Bottles And Use As Cozy Vases
For all of you knitters, this is a great way to re-purpose those glass or plastic bottles. This idea is for knitting a decorative sleeve for recycled bottles. However, if you are not a knitter, there is a short cut. You can recycle an old sweater at the same time. Just cut the sleeve from a worn sweater and slip it over the bottle. Fold the cut edge under the base and secure it with glue. I have done this to make cup cozies. However, if you are not a knitter, there is a short cut.
