All of us have dozens of empty, useless plastic bottles lying at home. Though most of us have the time and the will to put them to some good use, most of us lack the creativity required to do so.


Best Out of Waste Ideas From Old, Waste Plastic Bottles

For all those like me who love little suggestions from here and there to get them to do something interesting, here are a few wonderful best out of waste ideas from old plastic bottles.

  • Cute Craft for Kids From Waste Plastic Bottles

As always, the temptation to include a few crafts ideas for kids was too great for me to resist because it is always nice to keep the little devils occupied doing something constructive.

Ask your little one to take two empty soda bottles of the same size and color and cut them at nearly the same distance from the base using a paper knife.

Then, get a zip fastener of the same length as the circumference of the bottle where you had cut it a. Use hot glue to stick both the sides of the bottle to it one after the other, making sure to allow each side to dry completely. You can even try sewing the zip to the bottle by making tiny holes in the bottle though I found it much easier and neater to use glue.

Now, paint eyes on the container or use the wiggly eyes you can easily get in the market. And you have the cutest looking monster container for kids.

I am sure your little one will enjoy making this craft out of recycled plastic bottles.


You can even use rhinestones, etc. and decorate it for your dresser or use it to store your rings, small earrings, etc.

  • Embroidered Crafts From Recycled Plastic Bottles

Cut waste plastic bottles neatly and punch holes into them at regular intervals.

Choose an easy pattern and pull out some brightly colored yarn lying around in some corner.

See how cute and amazingly attractive these cans look on a study desk.


You can even use them on your kitchen counter or as brush holders on your dressing table.

  • Cute Bracelets for Girls From Old Plastic Bottles

Cut a plastic bottle with a pair of sharp scissors or a paper knife. I often use the both of them together till I get the perfect results.

Not use a little glue, yarn of your choice, your punching gun and get down to create these beautiful bracelets. Use a little lace and see the stunning effects you can create!


I am sure you’ll love to flaunt your creations from old, waste plastic bottles with no one being able to guess what you’ve been upto.

  • Make Indoor/ Outdoor Herb Gardens

Try making these wonderful planters from old, waste bottles and grow some herbs like cilantro, oregano, basil, thyme and mint in your balcony.

If you do not quite want to do that, you can even try growing small ornamental plants.

I saw this wonderful picture where this person has used bias tape on the edges of the cut bottles so that they look neater and don’t cause scratching of hands while watering, etc.



  • Make a Plastic bag Dispenser

Have you ever been irritated by those cheap grocery bags which keep piling in the kitchen corner or shelf, making it look messy but don’t know where to store them or put them away in case you need them in future?

Here is a wonderful plastic bag dispenser you can create out of a 3 liter soda bottle and use a drill to mount it up to the back side of your kitchen door.



  • Art Bowl Out of a Waste Plastic Bottle

Keep in one place one large bottle, a pair of scissors/ cutter and a small source of flame- I use a candle.

Cut the bottle and then heat it by keeping it a few inches away from the flame. You might have to waste a few bottles till you master the technique of getting the perfect shape you will need.

This looks just fine.

Now, use a soldering iron to perforate the art bowl. I decided to do so only along the outer rim, though you can do so on the entire bowl to make it look even better.

Here is this awesome looking bowl.


Use it to store knick-knacks or kids’ erasers, crayons and other stationary supplies.
