recycled bottle necklace

Recycling plastic into crafts is a fun and eco-friendly alternative to tossing said plastic into the trashcan. Peaches from Aunt Peaches made this fun melted plastic statement necklace with #6 plastic party cups she melted Shrinky-Dink style in her oven. I think it looks kind of like sea glass! These melted plastic pieces would also be pretty on earrings, or connected together like links. [how to make a recycled plastic necklace] [via oneprettything]
