Vase from a plastic bottle
Shortly after in our household were plastic bottles, craftsmen quickly found they were not quite a traditional application. What did not they carved their own hands from this worthless stuff! That's vases came up to do. Of course, variants of such a great variety of plastic vases, but one of them is particularly interesting. To make a bowl with his hands, we only need a large plastic bottle with shaped bottomed, and preferably with a tapered "ring" on the bottom. Then the vase will look especially elegant.
So, remove the label from the bottle and thoroughly laundered plastic, trying not to scratch it. Therefore, do not use abrasive sponges or abrasive detergents. Now cut the bottle approximately at mid-height. However, the vase can be made higher. The only thing to note: as a finished product, our vase will still twenty centimeters lower than the trimmed bottle. And the thing fringe, which will be the original decor of our bowls.
Next, we need to identify the desired height vase from its bottom in a circle and hold a straight line - the top border of vases. The rest of the top part, we will cut fringe and tinkering of this fringe decorative finishes. So, from the cut-off line before the scheduled make vertical cuts - strip width of 1-2 cm. It is important that these strips have the same length and width and, naturally, with very smooth edges at the incision site.
Now bend these bars out. To get a smooth fold place, you can turn the bottle upside down and gently but firmly press it into place bends strips to the table. Circle - the top of the vase - should get the maximum level. Then start decorating the edge of the vase.
Bends one strip so that its top turned bent at an oblique angle of about 90 degrees. This strip should touch the top and a bit to go (one small area) over the edge of the fold line. Curl strip should be held above the strip near to it and under the following two. If you want to trim the edge of the decorative vases, make sure that the curved corner of the strip touches the outer edge of the lower third of the strip.
Similarly Bends second strip. Only her skip over the following two and dressed by a third. But the next strip Bends just as the very first. Thus, the alternating method of wrapping and fixing the strips are bent all the fringe twisting cut strip. As a result, we get woven scalloped edge of our bowls, made from a plastic bottle with his hands.
