You can make custom planters from 2-liter bottles. These planters are great for house plants like flowers, herbs, or vegetables. They are also easy to make -- easy project for those who don't consider themselves handy or crafty.
This project was inspired by my grandma Pagels who was a farmer in Nebraska during the Dust Bowl Period when many farms and farmers failed.
She didn't fail.
My grandma was the original up-cycler and re-cycler and if she was still alive I would make several of these for her.
All you will need are a few simple supplies.
- 2-liter plastic soda bottle with label removed
- White twine (no colored twine if for edible plants)
- Drill or hammer
- Screw or nail
- Spray paint for plastic (optional)
- Seeds for your choice of plants
