Seed Starter Pots for Free!

Introduction: Seed Starter Pots for Free!

This instructable is my entry for the green design contest. In this instructable I'll show you how to create two seed starting pots by up-cycling a water bottle. Most of us use these kind of water bottles quite often and toss them without thinking even for a second that these can be reused. It is my hope that many people will utilize this idea and repurpose these kinds of bottles for starting vegetable gardens.

Step 1: Let's Begin !

I started by removing the sticker from the outside of the bottle and rinsing it out with water. Next you need to cut the bottle into three sections, two pots and one base to help hold up one of the pots. You can see where the two cuts need to made by looking at the labeled picture. The ripples in the bottle can be used as a guide to help keep your cuts straight.You have now created two seed starter pots from one bottle! Enjoy! Save your bottles and try this in the next seed planting season.

    What great little seed starters! And then you can recycle the bottle when you plant the seeds in the ground!
