Cherry Blossom Art from a 2-Liter Bottle

This week I was trying to come up with a spring craft project. As I looked through my kitchen to find something I could use to make flowers, it occurred to me that the bottom of a 2-liter soda bottle has five points on it, which resemble the five petals of a cherry blossom.

  1. What a great idea! Thanks! We actually have a few empty bottles from our Mentos science experiment. I almost threw them away this morning!

  2. This is really lovely! Thanks for the great idea!

  3. Love this! What a great project for our next “Fun Friday” afternoon. I will post a link to how they turn out when we are finished. =)

  4. Yeah, I saw this on Pinterest a bunch of times. I didn’t know that was you! It looks great!!

  5. Very good idea, and so very pretty. You are a smart cookie :)

  6. This is why Pinterest is genius for people like me who are less creative than people like you! I’d never in a million years come up with something like this, but now that I’ve seen it I can totally execute it. :)

  7. What an awesome idea! I can’t wait to try it! …I suppose you could add variation by using a mixture of individual sized and 2-liter bottles?

  8. We have cherry blossoms blooming here on our street in Seattle and this totally reminds me of our years living in Japan…like pink snow! Love this project.

  9. that is so pretty and so simple! thanks for sharing the idea!

  13. This is sooo adorable, and my two little girls (and maybe even the boys!) would love this. It’s snowing today–a good day for crafting!

    The only problem is we don’t drink anything that comes in 2 liter bottles! I’m off to check if we have some in our emergency water stores :)

  16. Cute!

  17. This is my favorite flower. I am SO excited to be able to go home and paint it. :-)


  18. This is wonderful! We’re going to cover the playroom with flowers. I was wondering what to do for my spring playroom decorating, and now I know!

  19. Oh, I do love this! I noticed it on Pinterest also and now that I’m taking a closer look at how simple it is, I love it even more!

  20. I so love this! It would look great to paint this on a painters canvas or on fabric, such as burlap! Adding this to my list of projects! Thanks for sharing.
