House Made Of 30,000 Recycled Plastic Bottle Caps

Far away in the remote village of Kamarchaga, located in the Siberian Taiga, Russian pensioner Olga Kostina has decorated her wooden home with colorful patterns and images made from over 30,000 plastic bottle caps. Olga collected the bottle caps from soda bottles over the course of many years and she began using them to decorate the walls of her wooden house once she felt she had accumulated enough. She placed every single bottle cap by hand, using a hammer and nails to create traditional macrame motifs and various images of creatures living in the neighboring woodland.

It’s not MADE of bottle caps, it’s decorated with bottle caps.
