You can use them as vegetable or flower pots. The advantage is that this is very easy to make, it can be made by children or adults, you can hang it outside on the wall (as shown in the picture) or on the trees. With this kind of vertical breeding, you can save on space, if you dont have so much space and you can have your little garden if you live in an apartment. In addition to this, this gives a more beautiful look to your yard or wall.

Step 1: The Materials and Tools We Need to Make It

You need:

1x plastic bottle

about 2 meters of rope (cut into two parts, each part about one meter)

1x scalpel


1x lighter

Step 2: Cutting the Bottle

First, warm up the scalpel with a lighter then cut the bottle in a rectangle shaped form (as shown in the picture).

Step 3: Binding

When you cut the bottle, tilt each end of the bottle to the same length using a rope (as shown in the picture)

Step 4: Plantation

When you have done all the previous steps then you can put the earth in the bottle. Then plant the flower or vegetable which you want. Then hang the flowers on a tree branch or somewhere on the wall.
