DIY Part-1

In the present blog, I have described how to convert a plastic bottles into planters instead of throwing it away.

So go through the below DIY plastic bottle craft idea.

Things you need:

  • Plastic bottles / containers
  • Chalk paint
  • Acrylic colors
  • Cone liners
  • Brushes/sponge
  • Varnish

The chalk paint and Varnish I bought online from www.itsybitsy.in. These are water based, dry quickly and very easy to use.

So, once you have collected all the materials required for the DIY as described above, you can follow the simple steps I have mentioned below.

Steps:

  • First of all if the container or bottle is wrapped by paper, soak the container for at least 30mins in luke warm water with few drops of soap.
  • After that remove the seal by rubbing it and clean it and pat dry.
  • For this particular container, I have used chalk paint in the color whipped seafoam as a base. Use 2-3 coats. Let it dry for few hours.
  • I have used a sponge instead of brush. Sponge gives a textured finish which looks very nice.
