DIY Christmas Wreath Using Plastic Bottles
Hi, in this video tutorial I show you how I made a Christmas wreath with lights and some little fairy houses. For this project I used some string LED lights, two wire hangers, two coke plastic bottles (0,75 and 0,5 liters), tin foil, paint, hot glue and paper clay (I used “Das modelling material” ). This is a great way to teach children about recycling plastic bottles and also stimulate their creativity and imagination.
I first transform the wire hanger into a circle. Then I cut the the big bottle in half and the bottom of the small one and glue the three pieces together. I add tin foil to the circle and to the houses to make the basic shape. I added some curly branches using tin foil and some wire from the other hanger. The same way I made the three chimneys. When I had the basic shape I started covering everything with paper clay(I used “Das modelling material” ). You can work in one layer or, if you are a beginner you should work in two layers, one for covering the surface and the second one for the details like windows, roof tiles, and textures. I made a lamp-wreath so I made a lot of windows and holes for the light to come out. Let everything dry. Now you can paint it in the desired colors. I used watercolors and acrylic paint because I like working in layers and be able to change if I don’t like the way it looks. In the end you can seal the paint using some matte spray varnish. I placed some battery LED lights in the house. I recommend you use soft lights that will gently illuminate your windows so it looks like a real house. DON’T USE HOT LIGHTS!
