What you need

To make these beautiful Christmas snowflakes, you will need:

– of plastic bottles, preferably clear or blue (rather than green, like the San Pellegrino), but it’s up to you.

– of scissors

– of thread, ribbon … anything to tie them to the tree afterwards.

– a little bit of White paint (it’s optional, but it’s prettier, you can even create your own with this trick) or POSCA-like markers.

How to do

1. Cut out the bottom of your bottle, to isolate the bottom as much as possible, since we are going to use the “star” at the very bottom of the bottle.

3. Make a hole in it so that you can pass the ribbon, string, or anything that will hold it on your tree.

Result

And there you go, your star made with a plastic bottle is ready 🙂

If you like it as is, leave it like this!

Otherwise you can also use white paint to draw snowflakes on your stars, according to your desires. Let your creativity run free.

No more excuses for throwing away your plastic bottles, or for not having pretty Christmas decorations.
