Woman Decorates House with 30,000 Plastic Bottle Caps

Most of us tend to toss bottle caps in the trash, but Russian pensioner Olga Kostina found ways to use these everyday objects in a aesthetically pleasing and imaginative way. Over the course of years, Kostina collected colorful plastic caps until she believed she had enough in her stash to complete her artistic vision. She then hammered 30,000 of the caps down to equal sizes and nailed them into place to create all kinds of mosaic designs and patterns across the facade of her house.

She then filled in some of the gaps and added texture with macrame knotting techniques. The final result is a stunning home that stands out within the very rural, isolated Russian village of Karmarchaga, located about 50 miles southeast of Krasnoyarsk, and in the Siberian Taiga. The designs include repetitive 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.

Using subtle color changes and countless passes of the satin stitch, Giordano mimics the look of fur on hopping rabbits, sleepy squirrels, and scurrying mice.
