1. Bird Feeder Wreath

2. Upside-Down Tomato Planter

If you have a lot of plastic soda bottle lying around, it’s time to get some use out of them. Cut the bottoms off, put in a tomato seedling, and add some soil. Hang it up, water it regularly, and watch your tomatoes grow. The same thing can work with herbs and peppers too, if that is more your thing.
