Yes this really is simply made from a plastic bottle and there is nothing to it. Lay the bottle on its side and cut a square portion of it away. Just big enough so you can fill it with soil and put your plants of choice in it. Before you do that though cover the neck as well as bit of the body of the bottle with some burlap material. Then position the eyes using buttons, and a bigger one for the nose. Thats it for this project, but if we have tweaked your interest in having fun with plastic bottles, then check out our great post on this.
