DIY Ideas – Plastic Bottle Plantation

I’m a computer guy and have two hobbies, one to collect all type of CD’s and second I must have a cold drink bottle on my table while working. In other words my thinking process starts after having cold drink. Well I know it is not a healthy habit but can’t live without it. Last month I was cleaning my room and to my astonish I had a lot of plastic bottles and expired CD’s with me and then I decided to collect and implement some DIY ideas and plastic bottle plantation is one of the ideas, which I implemented recently in my free time. In my successive posts I will write about all the DIY Ideas I implemented but today let us have a look at CD and Plastic Bottle Plantation Idea.

    That’s a really neat recycling idea for plastic bottles. My wife and I use glass bottles and turn them into hanging plant holders and bottle lamps.
