I was inspired to make these from a picture I saw on Pinterest of cute white kitty planters made from soft drink bottles (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/127437864429724028/). I saved up some bottles from my recycling, cut them using scissors and a scalpel, and then spray painted them with chalkboard paint. I used chalk to draw on their faces, which worked out well for me because it was really easy to correct mistakes! ^____^
