Recycled plastic bottle flower holder

Make attractive wire hanging flower holders with empty plastic bottles and some wire. You can fill them with fresh cut flowers and hang them above an outdoor garden table, on a patio or balcony, or bend the wire at the base to allow them to stand upright for an attractive display of fresh flowers for a home.


1. Use sharp scissors to cut off the bottom section of a plastic bottle. You can use almost any plastic bottle for this project after it has been washed clean.

2. Wrap the wire around a cylindrical object. I found that a rolling pin gives a nice size, but it all depends on the size of your plastic bottle. Pull the wire at both ends to stretch open. Twisting and coiling the ends will make these smaller. Bend the wire into a hanger at the top, or a base at the bottom, before painting.
