Looking for a fun holiday project? This is your lucky day! All you need is: 6 bottles, 2 spray nozzles, some packing tape, and holiday lights! And guess what you have? Rudolph the Recycled Reindeer! This fun holiday fellow can be used as a yard ornament (your neighbors will be green with envy- get it?!) or an inside table centerpiece, or even a holiday light fixture! And you don't have to make a reindeer- try making your favorite animal! You could even make a mini animal and use it as a tree decoration! Have fun!
Step 1: Gather your materials!
Here's what you need:
4- leg worthy bottles, (Gatorade bottles work great!)
2- bulbous bottles, (large 2 liter drink bottles work well)
2- spray nozzles, (only pictured on the windex bottle- sorry!)
1- role of packing tape, (clear works well for a nice, clean look)
1- pair of scissors, (they end up coming in handy...)
1- package or strand of holiday lights (the brighter the colors the better the outcome!)
1+ people ready to have fun!
Step 2: Plan out your Rudolph!
Plan out what goes where- just you you don't end up with your torso piece becoming a leg... learned from experience!
Step 3: Start putting it all together!
Now this is the tricky part! It helps if you have a friend hold everything in place while you tape it. If not, you can always rest it on a pile of bricks or books.
Step 4: Add them antlers!
Take your spray nozzles and cut off the bottom half on the pipe, (otherwise it could throw off Rudolph's balance!)
Step 5: The Best Step!
The best step! Add the lights! Wrap the lights around Rudolph and then plug them in! Look at that cheerful little fellow glow!
