❣DIY Whimsy Fairy House Lamp Using Coke Plastic Bottles❣
Hello, in this tutorial I show you how I made a whimsy fairy house lamp using two coke plastic bottles, tin foil, paint, hot glue and paper clay. This is a great way to teach children about recycling and also stimulate their creativity and imagination.
Tools & Materials:
Das modelling material –
Tin foil –
Acrylic paint –
Hot gun –
Fruit carving knife –
I first cut the large bottle in three pieces. I glue the top and bottom pieces to the small 0,5 l bottle. I place the small bottle a little higher so it looks like a little tower. I cut the leftover cylinder plastic in two smaller pieces and glue them in the front and in the back of the house. Next step is to build the rest of the house using tin foil and hot glue. This is a fast way to achieve a basic volume that will be the base for our paper clay. Using tin foil I built the roof cones, the chimneys the door arch and the flat roof above the entrance. You should now have the general shape of your fairy house. Cover everything with paper clay. 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, door, wood texture, bark, mushrooms, door steps, curly roofs. When making the windows keep in mind it will be a lamp so you should draw as many windows as you can so the light will come out nicely. After the paper clay is dry you can easily add more details using tin foil and hot glue, like I did for some of the windows. The roof tiles should be placed starting from the bottom of the roof and working your way up. Let everything dry. I used watercolors and acrylic paint for painting 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 under 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!
