This unique bear vessel is eco-friendly and cost-efficient—made from recycling an empty two-litter soda bottle!—and allows you to get creative with your artistic skills. This project can also be easily adapted to reflect your child’s favorite animal.



  1. Cut the soda bottle into the shape of a bear’s head by first using the marker to draw the outline of the head, and cutting.
  2. Paint the entire bottle brown, and let try for at least one hour before painting the bear’s facial features.
  3. Once dry, add the potting soil into the bottom of the bottle, followed by the plant of your choice, and top with more soil.

Tip: Be sure to water the plant as directed, and leave in a place that receives adequate sunlight.
