Creator Svetlana Kuzevanova started making murals with bottle caps after being inspired by her cross stitch-patterns.

One retired couple have transformed their house into a colourful tourist attraction.

By collecting discarded bottle caps from around their village in Russia, they've created murals on practically every external wall of the house.

It all started when Svetlana Kuzevanova said to her husband one day, "Sasha, let's cover our house with caps - it will be a bit unusual but nice."

What began as a little corner in the garden has taken over the whole property over the last 18 years.

Today, every inch of the cottage is covered with recycled illustrations.

Relatives, friends and neighbours are all fans of Svetlana's house.

"While others throw them away, she is making such beauty out of these (bottle tops), " says neighbour Yulia Melkomukova.
