This recycled Bulbasaur planter is such a fun Pokemon craft for kids.

Active Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy



  • Marker pen
  • X-acto knife
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush
  • Craft glue


  1. Collect a plastic bottle (any size of your choice) and wash and dry it. Use a black marker to trace the Bulbasaur pattern on the bottle. I traced the ears and the top end of the head for the Bulbasaur on the plastic bottle’s outer body. 
  2. Use an X-acto knife or scissors to cut along the marker line, cutting off the top of the bottle.. 
  3. Prepare paint to match the color of Bulbasaur. I mixed white, blue and green.
  4. Paint the bottle, covering the entire outer surface. Once the painting is done, allow it to dry. Bulbasaur planter pokemon craft on a white background
  5. While the paint dries, trace the template on white card stock. Use acrylic paint or markers to fill in the patterns.
  6. Glue on the eyes and the rest of the painted pattern. Draw on Bulbasaur's smile, teeth, and nose. photo collage of how to make a recycled Bulbasaur planter pokemon craft
