Sanded Bottles

Creating art with PET bottles, scissors and sandpaper

Handicrafts promote the transformation of simple PET bottles into beautiful adornments.

A careful look, an open mind, a lot of creativity, scissors, a sandpaper, a lot of dedication, and here is the metamorphosis of PET bottles.

Tools? Constant search for new materials; 

  • imagination
  • scissors
  • sand paper
  • many attempts and a lot of care in finishing.
