Recycled Bottle Cactus Planters

Plastic bottle plantersRecycled plantersI'm a little cactus obsessed this season! They're adorable and nearly maintenance free since they don't need watering very often. I recently helped makeover a youth room and the main accent colors we choose where orange and yellow neon. I wanted to add a few plants to the room so this is my inexpensive and color—coordinating solution. I saw a similar project in an anthropologie store and thought it was so cute. Here's how I made mine...Recyeled planter tutorial1. Supplies: cleaned plastic bottles with the labels removed, yarn, scissors, cropodile or heavy duty hole punch, mini cactus plants and (not pictured) more (cactus friendly) dirt. 2. Use scissors to cut off the bottom 1/3 of the bottle. 3. Punch holes around the bottom lip of the planter, about 1/2 inch from the rim. 4. String the yarn through the holes and around the cap of the bottle. Braid and/or tie off the tops. Fill with dirt and replant cactus in its new home.Little cactus plantersCactus plantersI love how these turned out! As the cacti grow I will probably need to replant them eventually but it's no biggie as these bottles were needing a new purpose anyway. :) xo. Emma
