Woman Decorates her House with 30,000 Bottle Caps
Not all of us really see everyday objects in an imaginative way, but a Russian pensioner Olga Kostina found creative use of plastic bottle caps. She collected the plastic bottle caps and once she felt she had enough in her stash to complete her artistic vision she used 30,000 of the caps to adorn her home with colorful pattern and images – making it somewhat of a local landmark.
Hammering every cap by hand, kostina used the conventional macrame technique of weaving and knit knots to fabricate the detailed mosaics. The designs she created include geometric patterns as well as portraits of the cute animals in the surrounding forest.
Not only did she decorate her own home, but she also covered several other constructions in the area to add a little cheer to the remote neighborhood.
