Ornament crafts: Bottle top Christmas tree tutorial

Recycling ideas and tutorial

Isn’t it annoying how bottle tops can’t be recycled like the rest of the plastics?
It just means we’ll have to craft with them.
Making a bottle top Christmas tree uses 6 green milk bottle tops.
Cover the inside with PVA glue and fill them with whatever you have. The shinyer the better.
I used buttons, gems, sequins, glitter, tinsel pipe cleaner.
To make a Christmas card just stick the bottle tops on a folded piece of card and put a star at the top and something at the bottom for the base of the tree.
Kids might also like making a Christmas tree decoration by sticking the bottle tops to a thick piece of card with a hole in the top to thread string through.
