We have an extremly hot summer in my place so i had to figure out something which can cool us down.
Here comes the result :)
Step 1: Watch the Video!!!
In this video i show you the most important steps of the making!
Step 2: #1
Sprinkle with water yourself is a good idea in a hot summer day but how can we improve the effectiveness?
Step 3: #2
I bought 3 little hand fans for 5$! for all :)
The idea was to positioning those like shown on the picture to the top of the fan.
Step 4: #3
The most difficult part was to figure out how can i attach those together.
I searched for what everybody can find at home so i decided to use straws. I cut those to fit to the length of the fans.
I made a lot :)
Step 5: #4
I tried to make the connections curved so those fit nicely to the fans.
I used a hot glue gun but if you don't have i think you can use every kind of glue which sticks to plastic.
But investing to a hot glue gun is not a big investment so i suggest to do it ;)
Step 6: #5
Here starts the assembling parts.
I took the hot glue gun and glued the straw connections to the center fan.
Step 7: #6
When the glue strengthened I attached the side fans.
Be carefull and positioning well watch out for the switches!
Step 8: #7
I got a simple detergent bottle and cut out the shown shape.
Make this method twelve times. When i cut all of it i glued those together with super glue and made a flat stand for the fans.
Step 9: #8
I used the hot glue gun again and sticked the plastic shape to the top of the spray.
Step 10: #9
Here comes the critic part!
I glued the flattened spray to the center fan. I watched for keep it straight! It's so important!!!
Step 11: #10
I wanted to make the center connection be stronger so i added some more straws and glue. Now it holds well.
Step 12: The End
So this is the ready to use DIY blowing spray bottle!!!
The hole thing costs me 8$ the premade versions in my country nearly costs 25$! So this a cheap alternative to cool yourself down on a hot summer day! This is very usably!!!
We use it quite offen ;)
If you get interested in this project and make your own please give me a picture about the result and give a feedback about your experiences :)
Thanks for your attention!
