Check it out! After you have gathered the materials it takes about 10 minutes....
And you will enjoy it all summer long.
Step 1: What You Need
- one plastic bottle in the same shape as shown. Here in the Netherlands they are very common with detergent or fabric softener.
- one old bicycle inner tyre, or at least 6 rings cut from a inner tyre.
- one broomstick, as long as you want.
- a pair of scissors
- a small hacksaw
- a tea light ( small candle in aluminium container)
Step 2: Sawing
Step 3: Quarters
Step 4: Petals
Step 5: Cap Adjustment
Step 6: Big Match
Step 7: Capology
You can paint them. ( I use one layer of acrylic modeling paste, and one layer of artist's acrylic paint).
Or, easy peasy, cover it with two more rings cut from the bicycle tyre
Step 8: Finito
Notice how nice translucent the bottle shines, and how beautiful metal-like the inside reflects!
How much light-flowers can your garden take?
