SYTYCD Project # 2

Don't forget to vote @ So You Think You Can Decorate

 The inspiration:
An Anthropologie store window: featuring up-cycled plastic water bottles

What I started with:
Approximately 50 water bottles; Coke bottles, Aquafina bottles, Dasani bottles

A recycled bottle chandelier:
Using 50 plastic water bottles I crafted and painted flowers and attached them to natural-jute wrapped wire. It hangs from four strands of natural jute.
The total cost for this project: $16!
