Also me and hubby were at the mall and I saw these really cute flowers in the window of Anthropologie. On closer inspection I realized they were made of pop bottles! How cool is that?! Well we don't generally drink pop here but my dad came over and brought some 20 oz. bottles with him so I thought maybe I could try it? I think it turned out well. Here is what I did...
Peel off label. Here are some idea's on how to get the glue part off. (I wouldn't suggest using the light fluid idea...especially if you have any kind of open flame in the house!)
I used the rigdes at the bottom as a guide to cut line from the top cut end to the bottom end all the way around. I then folded each flap down and held it with a clothes pin.
Get the clothes pin on really good as I had a few fly off. Do this all the way around and keep them like this for a couple of minutes to ensure they stay like this once removed.
I then cut the petals. I made mine pointed as you can see but you can cut them rounded or any other way you want. I them folded it down in the middle and held each one with a clothes pin. Do this all the way around.
Here is the finished product! Kind of cute huh? Anthropologie had bunch of these in groups in different colors, sizes, and shaped. It looked really great. I think this would be wonderful at a baby shower or wedding for the super eco peeps out there!
I also think that I might leave a note for hubby to drill a hole in the bottom of this so I can try putting a christmas light though it. I can just see his face when he reads that note! The thought of it makes me laugh till I have tears in my eyes! I' m not the only one out there whose husband just doesn't get some of the things she does am I?
P.S. I would like to make a pattern for my produce bags. It is pretty simple and I am hoping people would enjoy making these.
