Plastic Bottles Upcycled into Cacti Lights

Transforming plastic bottles into unique cacti lights is a brilliant way to upcycle and breathe new life into these everyday objects. By repurposing something as common as a plastic bottle, we can create stunning decorative pieces that not only add a touch of charm to our living spaces but also contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle. These cacti lights serve as a reminder of the importance of recycling and repurposing materials, showcasing how even the most ordinary objects can be transformed into something extraordinary. So, next time you see a plastic bottle, think twice before throwing it away – it could be the perfect canvas for a stunning cactus light that will brighten up your space and inspire others to embrace sustainable living.

What you need:

  • plastic bottles (green and colored ones)
  • scissors
  • a scalpel
  • a drilling machine with different sized drills
  • fairy lights

Take the green bottle and cut the mouth piece off.

Drill holes into the bottle to assemble the look of a cacti. On one bottle I carved little triangles into it and bend them outwards. This version even stings like a cactus but it took me much more time.

Cut the top off the colored bottle and slice it with the scissors so it assembles a flour.

Make a hole at the top of the green plastic bottle and attach the flower. You only have to stick it in.

Now put the fairy lights into a planter, put the plastic bottle cacti on top and you’re done!
