This basket is made out of recycled water bottles. The wall and the bottom consist of two layers of plastic The outer one is transparent and the inner one is white.

In between the two layers of plastic of this Valentine day gift plastic bottle basket there is napkin rosebud decoupage. All the parts are crocheted together with recycled gray yarn I bought at the flea market.

The diameter of the plastic bottle basket is 2 inches. It makes a great homemade jewelry box or you may store your scented grass there to odorize the house.

You may find this recycled craft basket on my recycledcrafting Etsy shop.

It’s a nice little thing you can make with your kids. Here is what you need for this water bottle craft project:

– Water bottle

– Scissors

– Pricker

– Yarn and crocheting hook

– Glue

– Nail polish or other decoration items

Here is what you do:

1. Cut the water bottle. I cut off the bottom and then the middle part ringand a slice of plastic for the handle.

2. Prick the holes in the bottom top edge, on both edges of the middle part ring and in the middle of the handle slip.

3. Crochet all parts of your bottle around separately. You get three pieces crocheted on the edges.

4. Crochet together the bottom and middle parts and attach the handle.
