Recycled PET Bottle Christmas Stars
Once upon a time, bottle bases were recycled to make glass tiles. Today, we can recycle the bottoms of plastic water, juice or olive oil bottles into twinkling stars with a snip of the scissors. These transparent decorations reflect light from every direction and make eye-catching beaded garlands or hanging decorations suspended from a bit of wire. For a set of five stars and three snowflakes, set aside eight plastic bottles. To make a star, cut out triangle-shaped shapes from the sides. For a hanging ornament, cut out two identical stars and hang them back to back. For a garland, start with a long piece of string (at least 1.5 m).
