When I saw this on Pinterest, I had to give it a try. They are really fun! Between these and wanting to build a pop bottle green house, I've put out a call for plastic bottles. :-) They are beautiful in both the sun and the shade, which is a delight. Simple acrylic paints, and I'll seal it if I put it outside. Each bottle has its own shape and nature, and laying one inside of another is a way to create more complex flowers.
For instance, this form was a Smart Warter bottle; it helped me create long daisy like petals (the top of the bottle), with a complex center curving in (from the bottom of the bottle). I'm going to paint it in purples.
I am thankful for all the creative folks out there that allow me to explore beauty and creativity in my own dining room. Thank you to all.
