Hello, in this instructable I will show you how we made a house out of plastic bottles. This is a fun project for you and your children. They will love to help you build an awesome house and learn about recycling. We used a big, 7 liters round plastic bottle , a 5 liters square plastic bottle and a few smaller ones of 1 and 2 liters. You will need some craft foam, wood glue, sand and acrylic paint. Have fun, you can make it!

Step 1: Glue the Plastic Bottles Together

For this step you will need your plastic bottles and hot glue. We started with the big bottle in the middle, and glued the other bottles around it. We tried to use different shapes and sizes alternating the square bottles with the round ones, the small bottles with the large ones. This step is very important because now you decide what shape your house is going to have. You can cut some of the bottles where they join for a nicer look. Make sure your glue gun is not too hot because plastic bottles can easily change shape when heated. You can decide now where the windows will go and you can even draw them on the bottles with a permanent marker.

<p>Thanks very much, this will m=now be added to my candidate list of what-to-make project in our class!</p>
<p>thinking of making it for my outdoor garden. Will fill with sand so it will stay in place. </p>
<p>That's a great idea</p>
<p>I'm impressed !!! Very Nice.</p>
<p>Thank you</p>
<p>very nice!!! thanks for sharing</p>
<p>Thank you</p>
<p>Great idea!!</p>
<p>Thanks</p>
I wonder how well these would make bird houses.
<p>That's a great idea, I think there should be more holes for air and maybe use some materials that are water resistant, so instead of wood glue you should use maybe wood varnish and coat the whole thing with a resin.</p>
