On July 1, 2017
However, the view that the waste material is fit only for outdoor decoration can easily recognize the mistake. Interesting crafts made of plastic is easy to decorate any space, in particular, the usual city apartment.
To work on a basket of preparing:
two equal-diameter plastic bottles of brown and green,
In addition, for the decoration of flowers, we need:
glue for wood, glass, and plastic,
and the flame of a gas burner or a book of matches.
Initially, cut off from the brown bottle top. It does not interest us. The resulting glass cut into strips 1 cm wide.
From the green bottle cut off three rings. The width of the bands is also equal to one centimeter. To make it easier to pierce the plastic scissors can be one of the blades to heat up over the flame. In this case, the molten metal surface, that is, make a hole in it. From the brown top, the remainder of the first bottle cut off the ring and divide it in half. One-half we will use to design a basket handle.
Now take the hands of a brown glass. Conditionally divide the band on “even” and “odd”. We numbered them in the picture. Putting beam of the odd lines.
We put on the first green beam collected hoop.
Then make a bundle of the even lines is left outside of the first ring.
Don second green hoop and lower it down.
It remains to collect the last bundle and put on the third ring. The beam will include the odd band.
Hoops hard pressed to each other. They are and strive to fly off the glass. To avoid this, we turn away brown stripes to the outer side of the basket and insert them in the pockets formed by the first and second green hoops. It is convenient to start with the odd bands.
Now dressed with the remaining band. In this case, two pieces left for decoration basket handle. Our basket of white spring primroses ready.
Let us manufacture the leaves and stems. To do this, cut off from most of the width of two green plastic rectangles than the height of the basket (in the figure only one shown).
This we get beauty.
Collect one of the rectangles in a bun and insert it into the neck of the bottle. At the same time, we can cut through the neck of the grooves and push them in the leaves and stems.
We fill a basket of wealth. One green plastic bottle to us quite enough to basket did not look empty.
It snowdrops. Needed for their manufacture gas burner. Plastic rings white plastic, we gathered in the petals, and that they keep the shape of a flower, a little-melted edge of the flame.
By the way, we also processed herbs over a fire. The grass turned with interesting swirls. We will glue the flowers to the green leaves of superglue.
We put a basket of primroses on the sill. Outside the window lay the drifts. And we have, as if in a fairy tale, blooming snowdrops.
