Recycling Plastic Bottle Caps for Colorful House Exterior Wall Decorating

ethnic decoration patterns made with plastic caps


Amazing colorful house exterior decorating transformed a small wooden house into a bright and attractive cottage. Recycling plastic bottle caps is a modern trend in art and crafts in eco style, but this house exterior decorating project is truly remarkable.

Recycling 30 000 plastic bottle caps for designing a masterpiece similar to mosaic is a way to demonstrate creatively and patience. Unusual and colorful house exterior decorating added a local landmark to a rural village in Russia. The mosaic murals depict animal images and traditional ethnic motifs.

Colorful mosaic murals on exterior walls adorn the old house creating a fresh and cheerful look with beautiful decoration patterns inspired by Russian embroidery. Created by Olga Kostina, colorful house exterior walls are a challenge to traditional rural house design, that usually uses just wood and carved wood details for exterior wall decoration.
