Sparkled Lamps using plastic bottle

Hello to all my friends! Hope everyone of you are having a wonderful weekend. 🙂

As we know that all of us are very fond of cold drinks , sodas and other aerated drinks but have we ever thought of making the use of the bottles left over afterwards??? According to the facts, this year, more than 250 billion pounds of plastic is created with very little of that production ever being recycled. The production constitutes about 37 pounds of new plastic created for every single person on the planet. Also, more than 75% of plastic water bottles are never recycled, they’re simply thrown away, So does most of us usually do. But it all need to be stopped as fast as possible as it is very hazardous to our beautiful nature . Thus, let’s stop this wastage with a fist full of creativity with this lovely soda bottle DIY ;).

As most plastic beverage bottles are safe to use because these are flexible, durable, transparent and food safe. There are probably countless applications for these bottles that will give them second lives. Yet, this craft is a great thing to start with. Here, you’ll be turning your trashy plastic bottles into mesmerizing glittery lamps. So, I have a cycled-up the bottle craft to share with you all here.
