Step 1: Preparation
The tools you will ned to complete this are very simple:
Weights (to make sure the bottles don't separate when you try to glue them together)
10 one liter plastic bottles
1 two liter plastic bottle
Step 2: Base
To prepare the base you will to line up the bottles like in the second picture. Carefully add a even amount of glue to the seam in between the bottle and roll them so the parts that has glue on it is crushed between the bottles. The line up the bottle in two's like in the first picture you should have a even space around each set. Later on I added a extra bottle for stability, all you have to do is slide the bottles over a little bit. If you decide to do this then you should ensure there is a lot of glue in the seam. Place them around the two liter bottle and glue the pairs to the bottle.
Step 3: Second Layer
To make the second layer you need to flip the bottles over. It should be almost a perfect match. Be careful to apply ore than enough glue to the bottles so they don't fall off. Then they should fit right between the pairs of bottles. Some might need a little space, but thats all right. And there you have it one functioning ottoman !!! The slot in the middle is perfect to put a drink in. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
