Handmade fabric poppy flower
This is my youngest daughter Kira wearing a wreath of poppy flowers made out of ribbon. I love poppies. They are so Ukrainian. You can find them growing on your fields or on the sides of the roads.
We had our apple harvest day at home. She just loves wearing poppies and I do too.

It works just well at a purse clip, hair clip or scarf clip for me. I make these out of silk like ribbons and the heart of the flower is all handcrafted after the old “grandma” fashion. When I first discovered how to craft those tiny black threads with white ends I was much surprised. But they do make poppies look so natural. Visit my Etsy shop or write me today to get your poppy fower clip or wreath.
Plastic bottles seem to be everywhere. And it is a great idea to recycle or upcycle them into useful items instead of throwing them away. Another advantage of plastic bottle crafts is their affordability. Still, you can create awesome designs using plastic bottles. Check out my plastic bottle baskets for instance.
But here we’ll take a look at creating jewelry using plastic bottles and pieces of fabric.
plastic bottle crafts
This is a set of handmade jewelry in blue: a plastic bottle crocheted over bracelet adorn with rolled fabric roses and a brooch.
Here is a quick DIY tutorial for the plastic bottle bracelet. Cut out a slice of plastic bottle. Prick or melt holes on the edges of it. Then crochet it over with yarn. Done. It’s that easy. You can use color plastic bottle instead of transparent one. White plastic bottles can be easily decoupaged with napkins to make them look even better.

Now you can decorate your plastic bottle craft with flowers and lace. I used blue fabric to rolled these roses of and glued them to the plastic bottle bracelet.
fabric flower brooch
Now comes the blue brooch. It’s very easy to make. You cut out a paper circle pattern of the size you like. Then you cut out at least four fabric circles, fold them in four and glue them with hot glue gun or stitch them to the base. Then you may use beads, lace or ribbons to decorate your flower brooch. Glue the pin at the back side and it’s done.
