Palm tree from bottles: possible benefits and methods of use
As you know, plastic used for the production of food packaging does not decompose when released into the soil for hundreds of years. Centralized removal of this type of garbage is not organized everywhere, and nobody wants to litter the surrounding areas with plastic waste. What should a summer resident do in such a situation? Is it really necessary to carry plastic bottles that have served their time to the city?
Do not rush! If you carefully collect the bottles of brown and green plastic, in the off-season the whole family can turn this container into an unusual evergreen tree in the evening.
Palm tree from the bottle will perfectly decorate:
- house territory;
- unsightly garden corner;
- plot near the outbuildings;
- edging land near the outdoor pool.
Palm tree from plastic bottles according to the instructions below, can be a spectacular decoration at any party, wedding, theme party or children's party.
Making an original piece of decor will not cause difficulties even for people far from this kind of creativity. The main thing is to prepare everything you need out of plastic bottles to make a palm tree.
What do you need for plastic bottle palms?
What should be stocked up before starting work? First of all, plastic bottles of green and brown will be needed for the home craftsman. The green ones are blanks for the foliage of the tree, and the brown ones are the future trunks of an evergreen beauty. At the same time, the height of the plant and the pomp of the crown are directly dependent on the quantity of the collected container.
The list of necessary materials and tools for creating a palm tree from bottles includes:
- plastic containers;
- sharp stationery knife and scissors;
- strong adhesive tape;
- metal bar or plastic tube for the barrel;
- thick rope or braided wire for the base of the leaves.
When selecting plastic bottles for a palm tree, it is necessary to take into account that trunks and leaves made of containers of the same diameter look better. If smaller green bottles are in stock, they can be used for leaves in the middle of the crown, but brown small vessels will have to be used for tree trunks of another type or size. Different shades of plastic - not a hindrance. They will only give the man-made plant vividness and brightness.
Palm Tree from Bottles:
Production Guide A step-by-step description of all the subtleties of creating plastic wood will help you quickly, literally in the evening, to assemble your own hands, step by step, a palm tree from plastic bottles of a conceived height.
The process consists of three operations:
- leaf assembly;
- create a plastic plant stem;
- connect all parts and assemble the finished wood.
Before making a palm tree from plastic bottles, the container must be washed and all paper and film labels removed from it.
Although there are a lot of options for creating plastic wood, the lush long leaves with any method chosen are obtained from large, for example, two-liter bottles.
Creating a crown of palm trees from bottles
Prepared green bottles with a stationery knife or scissors cut off the bottom. It is no longer needed, and the upper half will become a blank for the sheet.
Neatly cut it into thin longitudinal strips towards the neck. The larger the diameter of the plastic bottle, the thicker and more magnificent the green leaves of the palm tree will be.
These are not the only options for creating leaves. If the upper part of a plastic bottle is cut, as in the photo, into four “petals”, and then each of them is cut several times, you will get beautiful plumose foliage.
The resulting leaf fragments are sequentially strung on a strong rope or durable electrical cable. On the first blank, the lid must be wound, so that the leaf stalk is secured at the top with a knot. Similarly, the last part of the bottle is twisted.
A palm tree made of plastic bottles can have a tip of any size, but the trees whose crown consists of no less than 5-7 leaves look better.
At the base of the finished palm leaves should be a long stalk, then to collect and securely fasten the entire structure.
Assembling the trunk of a palm tree from bottles
To get a tree trunk that looks like a natural tree, you will need almost the entire bottle, except for the bottom.
From the bottom almost to the very neck of the brown bottles, longitudinal cuts are made dividing the capacity into equal petals.
Only a small fragment of Donets goes to waste.
This is how the finished part of the future palm tree from the bottles looks.
Assembly is carried out in the same way as collected green leaves of a tree. To secure the palm tree in an upright position, its trunk will require a strong, rigid core. It can be made of metal bar of suitable length and diameter or tube.
Assembling palm trees from plastic bottles
Finished palm leaves are fixed with glue or tape to the top of the tree so that they form a uniform, diverging on all sides crown.
This is how the finished treetop looks like.
The design is quite heavy. Therefore, it is desirable to secure it with the help of such a heavy foundation. If you make a welded platform there is no possibility or a suitable material, the rigid plastic or metal base of the stem is buried for at least half a meter. Such a kind of "root" in the pit is reinforced with brick chips and compacted with soil after filling. Large trees are better to concrete.
A video about how to make a palm tree for a garden plot out of plastic bottles, explains all the nuances of the creative process, and helps you to turn the yard or corner of the garden into an oasis with your own hands.
