Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get Your Materials!
You will need:
- A bottle of water made of glass
- Nail polish
- A small piece of sandpaper
- Masking tape (also know as sticky tape)
- Hole puncher
Not necessary but highly recommended:
- Alcohol and a piece of cloth*
- Nail polish remover**
- Gold spay paint
Note: I used cotton instead of cloth but it did not work as good as cloth would work.
* Use them to clean the bottle after sanding
**Perfect for removing any imperfections. Wet the ends of the swabs using nail polish remover. It works for getting rid off any mistakes. Off course, you can also use them to decor!
Step 2: Sand and Paint
After you scrape and remove the original labels , place the tape as is shown in the second picture pressing the edges really well*.
Now, paint it using the nail polish. Several coats of nail polish might be required, depending on the color you chose. Wait until dry and get rid off the tape.
*keep in mind how many divisions you want it to have
Step 3: Decor!
It is up to you, but try to use this simple technique.
Take the sticker and make a figure on it using a hole punch**. Now, use the sticker like if it was masking tape.
**the colorful part of the sticker must be facing the table -otherwise, you may get in trouble-
Step 4: Additional Step! Painting the Tap
If you use a gold spay paint and paint the tap, It will get a fancy look ;)
Step 5: Voilà
Enjoy, gift or keep it for yourself.
I will admit that I gave it to myself. You know, from me to me ;)
