Making Milk Bottle Planters
In our school’s craft club we have been making planters out of milk bottles as part of our Erasmus+ Back to our Future project. Here’s how we made them.
You will need:
- Cleaned out plastic milk bottle
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brushes
- Pipe cleaners and gems [optional]
- Small plants and/or herbs
Step 1: First of all you want to cut a rectangular shaped hole in the top of your milk bottle.
Step 2: Decide what animal or vehicle you want to make, then chose the paint colours you want and mix them into the glue.
Step 3: Start to paint your bottle however you like.
Step 4: If you want to add detail to your creation, pipe cleaners and gems are a great option. [Let the paint dry first].
Step 5: Start to gently fill your bottle with the compost.
Step 6: Choose your small plant or herbs make a hole in the soil and carefully push it in.
All of the hard work was definitely worth it because the end product was amazing !
