Transform a disposable coffee cup in a vase: All the tools that will be used for the work, certainly there are in each kitchen. Let’s start!
We will need:
– Medlennovarka or steamer. In an extreme case it is possible to build a double boiler on the stove in a pot of water and colander.
– A metal bowl (I used dish made of stainless steel)
Step 1: What and how
We put the cup in medlennovarku and cover with a lid, as shown in the figure. First, the glass will increase dramatically in size and then begins to rapidly shrink. If you want to bowl was great, 1-2 minutes glass foam is removed. If you want a vase pomenshe- hold it in medlennovarke 30 minutes.
The figure below shows how to change the size of the cup, depending on the time of “cooking”. 1- conventional glass beaker after 2 2/1 minutes medlennovarke, after 30 minutes, 3-, 4-, after hours.
Step 2. Simulate a vase
In the previous step we estimated how much time is needed in order to enlarged glass. Now we proceed to the modeling of the vase.
Take a rubber band and dress her under the neck of the glass. If you have more stakanchik- wonderful. You can make another bowl, put on him a couple of rubber bands. We put our future in medlennovarku vase for a couple of minutes. During this time, the glasses will expand, and the gum will remain in place, so that the coffee cups will take the form of these vases.
Then, wait until cool and remove the glasses with their gum.
As a final touch, you can insert in a vase flower.
I propose to share in the comments photos of their vases.
