By Laura VickersPublished Mar 13, 2018 2:06PMHearst, the publisher of The Atlantic, is now offering a DIY solution to its home decor woes: a home decorating brush made of recycled plastic bottles.
The project is called PlasticBuddy.
It’s an easy way to get some color back in your life.
“It’s a fun project,” says John Wiegley, the editor-in-chief of TheAtlantic.com.
“We’re trying to turn recycling into something that can be done without a lot of hassle.”
For the DIY project, you can use a Styrofoam container as a paint brush.
Wiegly says it will last about five years, and he’s used it to create beautiful, colorful creations for friends and family.
To make the plastic Buddy, you’ll need two bottles.
You can use your own plastic bottles, but if you don’t have one, you could get some from a local store.
“We’re not going to take any of your money and do this, but it’s a good way to make something that’s really unique and beautiful,” Wiegle says.
“You can have a little bit of fun with it.”
To make your plastic Buddy go, just use one of the bottles to paint on the walls, windows, ceiling, and the base of the door.
You’ll need to add a few coats of paint, and then it will be ready to go.
Wigley says it’s not necessary to use the same plastic bottles over and over, but you could swap out the bottles for something else if you want to.
You could even buy plastic buckets to make the project easier.
