How to make festive candlestick from a throwout material
But, let’s get down to business! To make a candlestick, I needed:
1. A small glass jar (I have 350g)
2. 2 plastic bottles: one big (1.5 l with a neck wider in the lower part), another smaller
3. Socks with lurex …)
4. Braid with lurex and crystals are self-adhesive (they are still more reliable to paste)
5. A couple of tablespoons of gypsum or something like …
6. Paint and acrylic lacquer
7. Screw cm 4 cm (I took 3, 5 – it is too small)
8. Clay Titan
We paint the jar with white acrylic. I really pasted first with napkins, but this is optional.
We cut off the neck of the plastic bottle and put the sock on the resulting funnel. Try another sock on the jar.
Insert the neck of a funnel cut from a plastic bottle
We put the upper sock into the funnel, and we tie a jar under the bottom of the jar. I did not just tie it up, but preliminarily hammered a sock with a stitched suture – it’s so much easier and more convenient to work with it.
In the funnel, by fitting, I picked up another, smaller plastic bottle (the good is their choice), so that the funnels enter one into the other and adhere to each other with their shoulders. It will be direct that “nest” in which the candle will be put.
The smaller one was cut so that it could be gently pasted into a bigger one. The order of the subsequent assembly is shown.
Next, I select the screw on which the candle will be placed (so as not to fall from the slightest movement). It is better to do a more authentic, to the edge of a small funnel. I hurried, took, what was under my arms, the rod was a little short.
I fill the cap with a plaster cap from the funnel. So it’s more convenient to install it exactly vertically. And put on the battery to dry.
When the gypsum solidifies, I screw the plug back onto the funnel.
Fill the rest of the space to the desired diameter. After drying, I rub the cracks and paint.
While everything is drying, I prepare the jar: the bottom of the jar around the knotted thread is properly glued with glue Titan. Sushu. I cut off the excess (together with the string, so as not to interfere) and I seal the bottom with a piece of cardboard. I cover with acrylic varnish. Around the bottom glue tape. Those who have not yet had to glue the braid can see how to do it. To be well pasted I knit on top for 15-20 minutes.
Around the neck of the can also tie a thread with a sock and also glue the braid. Here in 2 rows, to close the entire thread (here the truth is not glued on top, see photos 16, 17, etc.)
What I do with a large crater – can be seen in the photo. Then I lower the knit from the top and carefully evenly lubricate the funnel OUTSIDE with glue Titan, again I put the funnel in the sock, hold it to stick evenly. When everything is glued on the outside, I glue the inner surface with glue, cut off the excess from the sock and fill ROVNENKO inside the neck and also glue it. Then I paste the funnel into the jar.
Then I spread glue on a small funnel and insert it into a large funnel. Crap all varnished times 3.
As a result, we get here such a candlestick. Well, not exactly that, of course, I pasted the rhinestones.
There’s a view from the other side. The jar is 6-spiked, the pattern on 3 faces is one, on 3 others different, smaller.
On the bottom, I glued a piece of cardboard from the Raffaello box and put down my autograph.
And here is the cockerel, trying on a nest.
Thank you all peeped.
