Neatly trimmed with scissors edge, giving the bottoms smooth shape of a flower, ie not just cut cleanly and make a small indentation. Then immerse bed plate bottles preheated in a pan sand. Immerse literally a few seconds, this time would be enough for easy sharp edges. Incidentally, at the time of immersion of the plastic in the sand, at the same time deepening future “flower.”


According to the above scheme, prepare the necessary number of “flower”, which are then strung on twine. Punctures in the bottom of a better make an awl. Connect “floral bottoms” can be strung on the line by the type of beads or create whole cloth by making punctures in different parts , in which thread the fishing line. Incidentally, these curtains, it can be supplemented by large coloured beads or ribbons of burlap. Curtains made of beads can be found here , and the curtains from burlap here .
