By: Tiffany Threadgould

With some easy-to-find supplies, you can make plastic bottle crafts that can be displayed in your craft room. Crafts with plastic bottles are an eco-friendly alternative to more expensive home decor crafts. This is a great project to make after a party or celebration because you need 24 plastic soda bottles. It's also a great excuse to get everyone in your life to save their bottles rather than throwing them away.

  • Twist ties
  • 1/16" hole punch
  • Permanent marker
  • Holiday lights



  1. Using a permanent marker, mark five points around the neck of the soda bottle.
  2. Punch those marks and insert twist ties into holes.

  4. Once finished connecting bottles, feed long end (not the plug end) of Christmas lights into the soda bottles.
  5. Once last light is in, insert one more twist tie through a hole and twist around end of the string of lights.

Love this innovative lamp idea! Its a perfect way to make something new and interesting from everyday items. This would be perfect to enliven a party atmosphere by adding that touch of originality! The way the bottles will scatter the light may also produce cool lighting effects and make a space feel cozier.

I am looking to try this craft and use the bottles to decorate my trees in the yard during the summer months. How festive they would look at dusk. Twinkling shiny and bright. I like the idea of colored bottles like green to mix in with clear just to add dimension and interest. This craft would also be great for the holidays inside the home.

What a clever way to recycle by using what most people have a lot of empty plastic bottles. Such a very inexpensive cool way to decorate with a lighted soda bottle chandelier for thet frat party or any indoor or outdoor activity thrown for the college students to keep the cost down and I know you can make it a project to get everyone involved to help make this(unless you would like all the credit) to make it extra fun. Who does not like lights to give the event a little nice sparkle plus you are saving the bottles from hitting the land fill. Super cool video. Thanks.

What a great idea for an outdoor pool party or graduAtion. It would sparkle and dazzle. Plus if you use battery LED lights, it would be safe near the water. No glass to break, no electricity to worry about. I call this a win- win idea.thanks for sharing

sike my jokes were just jokes i love this )

i love this so much NOT HA GOTEE


i like this for a terrace BBQ party, with twinkle mini-lights...fancy! lfs

I did this a long time ago but the directions I used said to poke holes in the plastic bottles for ventilation. The heat from that many tiny bulbs does build up. I used the tiny, twinkle lights in mine.

I thought this was a great idea Thank You

This would be great for an outdoor party

I can't wait to try this!

I think those spiral bulbs would be fine and not heat up, any other LED lights too.

I like it, a good Idea

@leeancarol99-if you use Christmas lights the heat shouldn't be a problem. Larger lights, however, probably wouldn't be a good idea for this project.

How do you make them safe from the heat given from the lightbulbs?

I suggest poking holes in the bottles to allow for ventilation. You can also use smaller Christmas lights rather than light bulbs. Hope that helps!
