Making flowers from plastic bottles with their own hands with detailed instructions and photo
Do not throw away plastic bottles - of themyou can make flowers To yourself make from unnecessary plastic bottles cute cornflowers, you need to spend not too much time. For this craft we need the following materials:
- Plastic bottle of blue and green flowers. The volume of the bottles does not matter, because our products require only a part of the bottle. If possible, try to find bottles with an even surface. A bottle of sky color will be used to make petals, and green - a stem, corolla and leaves.
- Hard wire or wire wrapped plastic sheath; We will then decorate the stem with a green ribbon from the bottle.
Stage number 1. We make the flower petals First, remove the bottom and top of the selected bottle, i.e. all conical parts. After that, we cut the bottle along with scissors so that an even plastic rectangle turns out. From the resulting piece we make a blank of this type, as demonstrated in the photo below. To give our flower from a plastic bottle the most natural appearance, it is preferable to make two similar blanks which subsequently form two-layered petals. Stage number 2. Melting. Using pliers or using some other tool, take our workpiece and bring it to a burning candle or hotplate, making it softer. To achieve this is quite simple, because at high temperatures, plastic instantly changes shape. If necessary, try using pliers or pliers on the plastic to give the cornflower petals the necessary shape. Do not forget to follow to the fire of a candle and a gasThe burner did not come into contact with the plastic of the workpiece. Otherwise, it will strongly melt away and become completely unusable. The resulting petals are pierced with a well warmed up awl or needle exactly in the center. Stage number 3. We make a whisk. Looking at the photo, cut out of the green bottle a corolla, which will become the lowest layer of plastic of our flower and will come in contact with the stem. Then, according to the algorithm described above, make a halo fusion and puncture in the center with a heated needle or awl. Stage number 4. We form a stem. For a single stem, we take a rigid wire or wire in a shell, and for a bouquet the thickest wire, which beforehand should be dissolve on several stems, is best suited as shown in the illustration. To decorate the stems from a green bottle, cut out a strip, wrap it in a spiral wire and slightly fuse over the flame. Stage number 5. Assembling a cornflower. Now go to the final compilation of our product. The prepared stem is put on the details in the following order: corolla and two layers of cornflower petals. To give strength to our flower, you can additionally glue the parts. In the end, in the center of the cornflower glue the beads. All! Elegant flower, made by own hands, ready!
