Recycled Plastic Bottle Fence

Recycled Plastic Bottle Fence

Convert those old bottles into a fence. Here is how.

What you need

plastic drink bottles
bamboo canes
garden twine or similar
knife or strong scissors


To make my little fence I used 500 ml drinks bottles – 2 bottles in height just as a little edging to my veg patch you could make it as high as you wish.

Firstly cut the bottom off one bottle. I used an old pair of scissors for this.

Take the cut off bottle and push another bottle inside it neck up – so that you have an elongated bottle shape. Repeat until you have enough for the length and height you require.

Cut bamboo canes to length + 6 inches for pushing into ground (you could also drill these into a length of wood of you were working on solid ground).

Keep doing this until you have required length.

To add extra strength bind the bottles to long horizontal canes with twine (see pic)

    Not too attractive; I have seen other ideas, that are very artistic, iniform, and attractive. Of course; there is a lot more time involvement. as you are creating a work of art!
