We go through so many plastic bottles of water, juice, cooking oil and the like
these days and hopefully we are thoughtful enough to put them in to a recycling bin
when we’re finished with them but what else can you do with an empty plastic bottle?

Although it is not Christmas and the website that features this project is not in English
it is such an effective idea that we have included it any way.

You can buy the small metal jump rings from craft shops and also hardware stores like B&Q.
Use metallic acrylic paint to do your snowflake detail on the plastic bottle.

Take care if you have children as the edge where you have cut the bottom away
from the bottle may have sharp bits.

Garden centres sell metal trees at Christmas time that would look fabulous with these
snowflakes hanging from them but I particularly love the wooden version in the picture.

I really must make the effort to make this for Christmas.

This is a brilliant idea but use common sense here
