And, it would seem, from completely unnecessary things that can only be thrown away, sometimes you can make quite interesting and even useful things. Conventional plastic bottles will surely appear from time to time in any home. You don't have to throw them away! After all, you can make such bees from plastic bottles that will not only decorate your house or garden, but also preserve nature.
You will need:
- plastic bottles;
- masking tape;
And first you need to cut the bottle into 2 parts: the first, the lower one, will serve as the body of the pot, and all the other parts will be obtained from the upper one. So, when the pieces are separated, cut the top half into 4 equal pieces. On each of the resulting parts, draw a wing and cut it out.
Next, we cut off 2 thin strips of plastic and twist them with a tube so that in the end they are not straight. These stripes will become the bee's antennae. We paint the antennae with black paint, just dipping them into a jar. Paint the wings and "body" of the pot with yellow paint.
When the paint on the pot is dry, use masking tape to separate several strips on it. Paint the selected stripes with black paint! We also paint the bottle cap with black paint, it will become the head for our bee.
When the black paint dries, drill a few holes in the bottom of the bottle to let the excess water out. Now you can start collecting the bee. We outline the center and attach the antennae to it, you can do this with a stapler. Then, just below the antennae, we attach the wings: 2 on each side, one under the other.
Finally, we close the place where the antennae and wings are attached with a cover, for example, screwing it with a screw. Done, all that remains is to plant flowers!
And below you can watch a video on how to make such a bee pot from a plastic bottle.
