Recycled Flowers

I've got a soft spot for recycled pretties, and today I found a beautiful assortment of flowers made from plastic bottles, plastic bags, and vintage neckties.

These Stemmed Bottle Blooms are made from discarded plastic bottles and individually hand painted. Available from BaublyBeth's Boutique. Pop a few in a vase or scatter them around your garden for a spot of bright color all year long.

Five vintage neckties gave up bits of themselves to create this large flower brooch. The perfect thing to brighten up your jacket, it would also be pretty pinned to a purse. Available from Sage and Daisy Apothecary.

These Everlasting Daisy Hair Pins are so retro and cool! I remember having some sort of loom to make something similar from raffia in the 70s. These are made from used plastic bags, so they're eco-friendly and eco-chic. Available from Strewth!
