Today's featured piece of trash is this lovely green soda bottle. I used it as stems for some recycled doll roses.
The first step is to cut the green bottle into tiny strips like so:
Then I put the strips over a flame. As the area of plastic over the fire becomes hot, it will be pliable enough to twist as seen below. When removed from the heat, it keeps it's shape and becomes much more stiff than before.
Then take some dollar store zig-zag ribbon and wrap it around the plastic stems, gluing as you go.
Voila! Recycled doll roses.
