Introduction: Capture a Galaxy
So you may have seen my two other bottled galaxy projects but they were for necklaces, This one is an ornament and is also improved and easier to make!!! Be warned this project can get messy!!!!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Things You Will Need!!
For this project you need a few things and they are:
- Small Cork bottle
- Glitter Glue
- Cotton Wool
- Crayons or oil pastels
Step 2: Step One!
For this part all you need to do is take a few piece of cotton wool and colour them in using the crayons/oil pastels. You can colour these whatever colour you want your galaxy to be!!
Step 3: Step Two!!
For this step you need to take the cork off of the bottle and then squeeze the glitter glue into the bottom, It doesn't matter on the amount of glitter glue as you can add more whenever you think you need too. I then used a hair grip to spread the glue around the bottle.
Step 4: Step Four!!!
Add the coloured cotton wool in whichever order you want and use the hair grip again to move the cotton wool around, I used it to push it against the front of the bottle. Once I had finished pushing the cottonwool in the bottle I added a little more glitter Glue on to the top.
Step 5: Finish!!!
And that's it!! You now have captured a galaxy in a bottle!! This method was so much faster and easier than the last one that I used! I really hope you love this project as much as I do!
