Recycling craft ideas: ornaments you can make from old CDs and plastic bottles


This is one of the easy recycling craft projects. It’s a wall ornament made out of used CD and plastic bottle.

The flowers and the butterfly on the CD are made out of water bottle plastic. You need to print out or draw a paper pattern and then copy it to the water bottle plastic. Then you cut out the  flowers and the butterfly.

I used a piece of old baby sweater for the butterfly. I just cut out the same pattern and glued it to the plastic butterfly. It’s a very easy five min recycled craft. You can make several of such plastic bottle butterflies in have an hour for various decorating purposes.

As to the plastic bottle flower part of this recycling craft, I cut them out of plastic, then I held them over a burning candle to bend them. When they cooled off, I colored the plastic with nail glue. I assembled the plastic bottle flowers on a transparent thread.

The CD part is very easy, too. I have crocheted it over with organic fiber. Then I used blue yarn to crochet over the CD edges. Then I put the whole thing together. It’s an easy and affordable way to decorate your house and to recycle or upcycle old things, such as CDs or plastic bottles.
