Materials needed:

  1. 2 or 3 liter soda bottles - the number depends on how many tomato planters you want to make.
  2. A glue gun and few sticks of hot melt glue.
  3. Few old CD or DVD discs.
  4. Toenail clipping scissors.
  5. Spray paint of the color that appeals to you: textured or metallic sheens will look better.

Here are the step-by-step instructions.

In this post we will make two tomato planters - the Bottle-Bottom Planter and the Wine-glass Planter - from a single soda bottle.

Using a marker pen, carefully mark the middle of the bottle to enable cutting it into two equal halves. You can be creative and make the edge fancy if you like as shown here. Make a pilot cut using a sharp utility knife. Now, insert your toenail scissors through the pilot cut, and then cut the bottle through your mark to make it into two equal halves.

You can as well as put holes on the edge of the bottle bottom planter using a paper punch.

Using a sandpaper lightly smoothen the sharp cut edges.

We will use the bottom half of the bottle to make the bottle bottom planter. The top half of the bottle will become the wine glass planter.

Here is an idea I like to do, but don't use it like a rubber band, if it is to long, twist it in your hands before putting it on the curtain. I like to use it on my Fabric shower curtain, to bring in the light from the bathtub windows.
If you have a chain necklace broken or not, that you want to use instead, us a fancy pin to hold both ends together. If there is extra chain just hang it down for a bolo tie effect....
