DIY (78) – Plastic Bottle recycle 1: box

Hi everyone!

Today we will start a special on plastic bottle recycling.

Would you have ever thought that you could make so many objects out of a simple bottle?

Today we will create a nice box with a zipper to close it.

You can choose two versions: a simple plastic and a second one (for those who have more time and a bit more expertise in DIY) decorated with fabric.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 78



plastic bottle – needle and thread (or hot glue if you don’t like sewing)
for the coated version: fabric – felt for the interior

First draw a line on the bottle (with a permanent marker) where you want to cut it. This will be your base.

Repeat the same procedure for the lid and cut.

Now insert the zipper, sewing it (or gluing it with hot glue) on the base. Open the zipper and sew (or glue) the other side on the lid.

You can now decide whether to coat it or not. Of course the plastic-only version is much faster to make.

TIP: Especially in case you decide not to coat your box, it is advisable to use rather resistant bottles. If you decide to use lighter plastic ones, you will have many problems opening and closing the zip;-)
