Have you ever wanted a giant baby bottle? Well now you can have one using household items and these simple steps. This item provides wonderful entertainment and can be used as a prop, for example, in the play Free to Be You and Me.
Step 1: What You Will Need
You will need:
A Cup of some sort
A glue gun
A Wire Brush or File
A black Sharpie Permanent Marker
Almost everything here can be purchased at your local arts and crafts store. (Yay!)
Step 2: Foam Molding
This is part 1 of 3 to making your baby bottle!
1) Take to rectangle pieces of moldable foam and put them next to each other. Then draw a circle as shown in the picture.
2) Next, take each piece and use a saw or knife to put around the half circle you have drawn. Do this for both pieces.
3) Now, use a wire brush or file to fine tune the half cirlces.
4) After you have done this, use hot glue to stick the two pieces of foam together.
5) Next, put a ring of hot glue around the cup you are using and stick your circle on top.
6) Again, use a file or wire brush to smooth around the circle.
7) Let your finished (for now) product set.
8) Using another piece of moldable foam, mold a tiny top the bottle. (See picture)
9) Attach the top to the top of your circle.
10) Begin to file the newly attached top into the bottle. (See Picture)
11) Admire your work
12) Do any more fine tuning that is needed.
13) Your done with part 1!
Step 3: Liquid Latex
This is part 2 of 3!
1) You need hand soap and liquid latex. Make sure you wear rubber gloves!
2) Apply a semi even coat of liquid latex to the foam. (Don't smooth anything in yet.)
3) Put soft soap on your hands or on the liquid latex. Smooth the coat of latex out.
4) Let dry.
5) You're done with part 2
Step 4: Painting
This is part 3 of 3!
1) You need with pink paint (which we didn't have) or red and white paint.
2) Mix red and white pain together. (If you have pink, skip this step.)
3) Paint all around the dry liquid latex.
4) Admire work.
5) Let the bottle air dry or put it in from of a huge fan!
6) Apply a second coat after dry.

8) Let cup dry.
9) Apply a second coat to your cup.
