Turn trash into a pretty Anthropologie inspired flower treasure!
I saw this Anthropolgie window display http://mslk.com/reactions/anthropologie-store-windows/ and decided to give it a go.
I am participating in the April Stash Bust over at Dollar Store Crafts and in this project used the top of a 2 liter bottle, the cap off a shampoo bottle and spray paint to create the above flower.
- 1 2 liter bottle
- Craft or Kitchen Scissors
- Plastic bottle cap
- Amazing Goop Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue sticks
- Spray pain
- Plastic bag
Cut the approximately 1 inch wide strips all the way around the top of the bottle. To make sure it was even I cut into quarters first, then cut each quarter into 3 sections for a total of 12 "petals".
Press the cut pieces down to form the flower.
I decided I wanted my petal to be rounded, so I opened up a plastic bag and rounded the edge of each petal over the bag then put the bag in my plastic recycling bin for easy clean up.
Next, I opened up an old frozen pizza box and spray painted the top and allowed it to dry, then flipped it over and painted the other side.
For the center of the flower, I used the top off of an Axe shampoo bottle, but just about any bottle cap would do.
Place glue around the bottom edge of the cap and place it firmly in the center of the plastic flower and allow it to dry.
