It's always nice to do something with your own hands: pleasure brings both the process and the result. And if you take as material what was considered an unnecessary trash and was to be destroyed, take into account the low cost of finished products, it becomes doubly pleasant. So, how is a vase made of plastic bottles made by oneself? Take a plastic bottle (preferably a cylindrical shape, any volume), scissors, glass balls or sea stones (for decoration).
Cut the bottle so that its lower partwas about 15 centimeters. We will use it as a basis. Over the entire upper circumference, measure the same thin strips and make incisions. Unbend all the resulting strips so that the entire length turned out to be an even edge. Now start to weave the strips between each other. To do this, you need to fold the edge of one strip, put it on the next one and hold it under the next two. The second strip bend the same way, but you need to weave it with two adjacent ones and hold it under one (third). The third strip is bent similarly to the first, the fourth to the second, and so on. The last three strips are bent under each other. Congratulations, the vase made of plastic bottles with your own hands is made!
