Recycled Plastic Pendant

I made this pendant out of cut pieces of a plastic beverage bottle. Scorched the sides a bit over a candle flame and then had it adorned with a butterfly charm and a short chain. Though this recycling technique is very common and easy, the assembling is what took much of my time.

Please note that utmost care is needed while cutting & burning the plastic if you are trying this technique at home. Protection for eyes & hands are recommended.

In my next post, I shall publish some pictures of plastic flowers which I have created using this same technique.

  1. Great use of ‘free’ material. Thanks for showing how to keep stuff out of landfill. Heating plastic [ABS, polystyrene] to temperatures over 300° C (572° F) releases combustible gases. Take care and thanks for sharing

    • Haven’t tried it yet so cannot comment …. looks like its would be more safer to use a heat gun but then the process of heating may depend on the thickness of the plastic.
