This is a project to convert an old empty shampoo bottle into a nice hanging planter for your garden or house.
Reuse and recycle!

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 empty shampoo bottle
  • scissors/blade/craft knife
  • marker
  • paints
  • small plant with soil


  1. First take an empty shampoo bottle, clean and rinse it thoroughly to remove any trace of shampoo chemicals. Remove the cap and place it aside.
  2. Then, on the bottle (both front and back) draw the pattern with a marker (as shown in the picture).
  3. Now using a blade or scissors carefully cut along the pattern to create our planter shape. Be careful while cutting as plastic can be sharp and it can cut your hands.
  4. Cut a small window at the back of the bottle planter to hang it. I've made it square shaped, but you can make it whatever shape you like.
  5. Now you can add some design or paint on it to make it more colourful and personalised.
  6. Make two holes at the bottom for drainage. This is very important as it prevents the roots from rotting and dying inside the planter.
  7. Now wash it once more and plant a cute small plant in it and hang it anywhere in your home! :)

  8. I made another planter with another pink coloured shampoo bottle. I've planted a few seeds in it and am waiting for them to grow properly!

You could hot glue (or other attachment) a tray made from another bottle bottom for a drip tray! :)
