4 Ways to Recycle Your Zoflora Boxes

1.      Make Pencil Holders

Sometimes your desk at the office can become cluttered with stationery. You’ll need organisers to keep all your pens pencils and highlighters together so they’re easy to find. With that being said, one of the best ways to recycle your Zoflora boxes is to turn them into pencil holders.

The boxes have flower designs on them, but if you want all your boxes to have the same colour, you can simply paint them. Take about 3 to 5 boxes of different sizes and glue them to a piece of flat cardboard to keep them stable.

You can then cut the flaps off the Zoflora boxes so you can place your stationery inside them.

2.      Use Zoflora Boxes as Planters

Another excellent way to recycle your Zoflora boxes is to turn them into planters. Simply cut the box in half. You’ll now have two sections. One section will have a closed bottom and the other will have box flaps. You can glue the box flaps down so you can use both sections of the box.

The next step is to fill each little box with soil and add your seeds. You can also plant small succulents inside the boxes. You can then put the planters around your house or the garden.

3.      Make Cards

Sometimes sturdy cardboard is expensive at stationery stores. Cardboard is stiff so it’s ideal when making cards. You can make all sorts of decorative cards for birthdays or Christmas or even wall art.

Cut up your old Zoflora boxes into squares or rectangles. You can then paint them white or any colour of your choice. Add whatever designs and lettering to your cards using paint or colour pens.

4.      Create Decorations

If you’re wanting a fun project with the kids, then recycle your boxes into pretty decorations. There are thousands of designs you can choose from. You can either cut out flowers or butterflies. You can then paint them and stick them on a wall or place them inside a frame.

Or cut your boxes up into strips of about 2 cm in width and 9 cm in length. Spray paint the strips gold. Then create a circle with your first piece and glue the edges. Then loop the second piece through the first circle and glue the edges. Continue with the process until you have a long chain that you can hang up for parties.

4 Ways to Recycle Your Zoflora Bottles

1.      Store Canvas Paint

When you’re painting you sometimes mix colours together to make a new shade. You may not have a way to store your new colour paint. If you have empty Zoflora bottles, then these are the ideal containers to store paints in various tones.

The first step is to wash your Zoflora bottles out thoroughly. Then leave them to dry completely. Use a funnel so you can pour your mixed paints into the bottles. You can then create your own labels to place on the bottles or write a description of the colour in black marker on the front.

2.      Make Stained Fairy Light Bottles

Another cool way to recycle your Zoflora bottles is to turn them into light sources, either for your home or your garden. Make sure you’ve washed your Zoflora bottles out and dried them before you make your item.

You can get stained glass colours at any arts and crafts store. Or you can make your own stained glass with Mod Podge and food colouring. Pour a small amount of the stained glass solution into your bottle and swirl it around until the entire bottle is covered.

Turn the bottles upside down and wait for them to dry. Then you can place battery-powered lights inside the bottles. These make stunning table decorations for parties.

3.      DIY Sprinkler

Zoflora bottles are easy to recycle into anything you want. If you don’t have the budget to buy a sprinkler you can make a DIY one using a Zoflora Bottle. Simply poke holes all over your bottle. Then attach the bottle to your hosepipe. You may need to secure it with an elastic band or tape. When you turn your tap on, the water will shoot out of the holes just like a sprinkler.

4.      Bottle Top Bag Seal

Are you tired of dealing with bags that you can’t reseal? You can make bottle-top bag seals using the top of your Zoflora bottles. Cut the top of the Zoflora Bottle off. Unscrew the cap off the section you’ve cut. Pull the edges of your plastic bag through the hole and fold them over the bottle’s opening. Then you can simply screw the cap back on.
