Plastic Flower Pot
The idea of creating a flower pot from a plastic bottle can not be called new. However, in this performance, I have not yet met the handicraft. In fact, the container was originally intended for planting onions, which in the spring, while still in the fridge, begins to actively sprout. Ordinary cups or boxes decorate the sill a little, if not to say that it completely spoils its appearance. Last year, my household successfully planted onions in pots where flowers grew. The plants turned out to be quite friendly neighbors. The flowers did not react to the appearance of the onion, and the uninvited guest, in turn, pleased the hostess with lush greenery. This year, in order not to embarrass the indoor flowers, I decided to make several flower pots out of plastic bottles. Here is the result of one of the works.For craftsused: - brown and white plastic bottle - ready-made eyes for toys - scissors - pliers - fire - pink nail polish - glue for plastic glass or wooden parts.First, cut the brown bottle in half to get a glass of the required height. Further from the top, with a neck, we carve a lion cub's head in the form of an irregular oval. Initially, the shape of the bottle contributes to the fact that we have a convex head. Cut the edges of the oval into thin strips up to 1 cm long. So we imitate the animal's fur. We bring the ends of the strips to the flame of a gas torch, a match or a candle for a few seconds. Plastic melts and acquires light curves. The basis for the head of the crafts is ready.Again, we return to the top of the bottle with the neck and cut out the figure of a lion cub in the shape of a figure eight. This detail is also obtained convex. Traditionally we will melt the edges of the muzzle over the flame of the burner.Cut out rings from white plastic, make two strips from them. Then scissors thickly cut the strip along the length, leaving intact about 0.5 cm from the opposite edge. We melt details over fire, we get a fluffy mustache.
Then we cut a drop from the remnants of white plastic and paint it pink. This is the language of the animal.It remains to decorate the lion tail.To do this, half or even 2/3 of the brown ring cut off from the plastic bottle, bend in several places, and burn the tops of the bends by fire. Due to the plastic deformation, we get the curve we need.To decorate a tail tassel, cut one side of a rectangular plastic into thin strips, then roll a rectangle into the tubule and cauter both ends of the “brush” over the fire. Stripes will curl and become curly. Further to the rounded base of the tassel, we will attach the tail itself.At the last stage we collect the details together.First, we glue the head of a lion cub, then a muzzle, with a mustache, nose and mouth on the muzzle. We glue the eyes over the cheeks, and the tail from the back.A flower pot made by yourself is ready to decorate a window sill on a loggia.If it makes sense to make a hole in the bottom of the glass (for excess water to drain into the pallet), then on the feet of the animal you can put on the same shape a bottle, only green . It will turn out the hand-made article “Lion on the lawn”.
