Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need:
- Various washi tapes, decorate tapes, duct tapes...
Tip: try finding varoius patterned tapes to combine

- Various sized and shaped plastic bottles.
Tip: 2 liter bottles work the best, because they are a good size and easy to cut


-something that can be used to wash any soda remnants in the bottle and to scrub any remnants of the bottles label off.

Step 2: Cut and Clean the Bottles.

Remove the label of bottle.

Cut bottle about half an inch above where you would like the bottle to be in height.

Rinse out bottle.

Step 3: Decorate With the Tape

Start putting on the first line of decorate tape slowly so that the tape ends of level around it. If your bottle has grooves where you cut just be patient and push tape into grooves as you go. If you don't work the tape into the grooves as you go it will be too tight to push them after you've gone around the whole bottle.

Step 4: Keep Decorating.

Keep adding strips of tape until you're happy with how it looks. The tapes don't have to be lined up to the very edge of each new strip. You can create gaps between each new row, but make sure these stay horizontal too.

Step 5: Done!

You now have a cool recycled storage container!
