Recycled Water Bottle Flowers

Mary, Mary, quite does your garden grow?

With recycled water bottles, popsicle sticks and nail polish all in a row. 

Here's what you need to make this quick & cute craft project with your kids:

The bottoms of water bottles
Old nail polish
Popsicle sticks
Hot Glue Gun (or good tacky craft glue)
And of course, nail polish remover :) 


This is our friend Jamie, with the recycled water bottle flowers she made. 

All you need to do to make these cute flowers is choose two colors of nail polish, use one to paint the center of the bottom of the water bottle and one to paint the rest to make the petals of the flower. We painted popsicle sticks green for the stems and hot glued the flowers to the top when they dried. They look adorable stuck in the garden among the real flowers.

We glued magnets on the back of some of our flowers too.


( Be sure to do this project outside or in a well ventilated area. )
