Everyone knows the use of plants and trees. And we know the greatness of recycling things, and minimizing space too. So I thought of mixing all these. Thanks to the power of DIY, we can bring whatever we imagine to reality, And this is the story of the hangarden. You can customize it for endless possibilities, like painting on the bottles, etc. It all depends up to your imagination. You can also keep it indoors or outdoors. I've also gave the steps to add extras like built in germinator. It is also a very great and lesser cost gifting idea.
Step 1: Materials Required
Now it's time for me to look up at the garage. and I found these:
1) Three or four bottles. plastic one and larger one is recommended.
2) A rope to tie all the bottles. 3) A tool for cutting things.
4) And of course plant(s). (and this is not from garage.)
Optionally, you'll need a stapler or duct tape,a bubble bag for germinator and a small box, like shoebox.
and we're ready to go!
Step 2: Now, Cutting Things Up
Now comes an important part. Take a bottle. (look at the second picture). poke holes as I pointed to make cutting the bottles easier, and start cutting the bottles. cut 40% of the bottle on both top and bottom horizontally when bottle is kept vertically* with the drilled place as centre and poke holes on all the four ending points and connect (cut) all those four points
to say simply, you can see the pictures and understand on cutting the design. now do this to all the bottles.
Step 3: Insulate The Rough Edges.
The edges which are cut from the bottle will be uneven and sharp, which is dangerous to the hands of children. To keep safety first, we can insulate the uneven points with insulating or duct tape. just stick the four strips of tape on the four sides, so that half the tape is outside and half inside so it can cover the uneven places. do this to each and every bottle.
