Recycling Plastic Bottle Caps for Colorful House Exterior Wall Decorating
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.
Artistic ways of plastic recycling
The owner of this small home wanted to add color with plastic mosaics and jazz up neutral color palette of traditional wooden homes. She collected colorful plastic bottle caps and hammer them to the walls in accordance with her favorite embroidery motifs and ethnic decoration patterns.
Various woodland creatures and pet images adorn the house exterior walls, making her home look unique and artistic. The bright color palette and unusual material create an exciting blend of design ideas that makes a statement of innovative approach and sustainability.
