## Step 1: PART 1-MATERIALS NEEDED

THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO MAKE A SIMPLE PLASTIC NECKLACE AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

IT CONSIST OF

1) A NORMAL PLASTIC BOTTLE(1 LITER).I HAD USED THIS PLASTIC BOTTLE FOR MY PREVIOUS PROJECT,THAT'S WHY IT HAS BEEN CUT FROM BOTTOM.(QUANTITY=1).

2) A SILVER COLOUR ACRYLIC PAINT(SMALL BOTTLE) AND PAINT BRUSH.

3) ANY GLUE

4) PAIRS OF SCISSORS.

5) PERMANENT MARKER.

6)PUNCHING MACHINE.

7)OLD SMALL CHAIN.

## Step 2: MAKING MARKINGS ON BOTTLE

TO CUT THE UPPER PART OF THE BOTTLE ACCURATELY,I HAD TO DRAW LINE ON IT SO THAT IT BECOMES EASY TO CUT THE BOTTLE BY FOLLOWING THAT LINE AS SHOWN IN THE IMAGES ABOVE.

## Step 3: CUTTING OF THE BOTTLE

THIS IS HOW THE PLASTIC BOTTLE HAS BEEN CUT IN TO TWO PARTS BY CUTTING THE BOTTLE THROUGH THE LINE THAT I HAD DRAWN ON IT AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

## Step 4: AGAIN CUTTING OF THE BOTTLE

AGAIN THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE BOTTLE HAD TO BE CUT AND HOW IT LOOKS AFTER CUTTING IT IS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

## Step 5: MAKING MARKINGS ON THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE PLASTIC BOTTLE

AFTER CUTTING THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE PLASTIC BOTTLE,DRAW STRAIGHT LINES ON IT USING A RED MARKER AND THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS AFTER DRAWING STRAIGHT LINES ON IT AS SHOWN IN THE IMAGES ABOVE.

## Step 6: CUTTING THROUGH THE LINES MADE ON THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE PLASTIC BOTTLE

AFTER DRAWING STRAIGHT LINES ON THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE PLASTIC BOTTLE,AGAIN CUT THROUGH THE LINES BUT NOT TILL THE END.

CUT THROUGH ALL THE LINES TILL THE HORIZONTAL RED LINE MARKED ON IT AND THIS IS HOW IT WILL LOOK AFTER CUTTING THROUGH ALL THE LINES AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

## Step 7: APPLYING GLUE ON THE MIDDLE PORTION OF THE BOTTLE

AFTER CUTTING THROUGH THE STRAIGHT LINES,APPLY GLUE COAT ON THE ENTIRE PORTION OF THAT PLASTIC PART AND THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS AFTER APPLYING THE GLUE COAT ON IT IS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

## Step 8: PART 2-PAINTING THE PLASTIC PORTION

AFTER APPLYING THE GLUE COAT ON THAT PLASTIC BOTTLE PAINT THE ENTIRE PORTION WITH SILVER COLOUR ACRYLIC PAINT.THE PAINT GETS EASILY SETTLED ON THE PLASTIC PORTION BECAUSE OF THE APPLIED GLUE COAT ON IT AND THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS AFTER PAINTING ON IT AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

## Step 9: BENDING OF THE STRIPS AND SOME CUTTING

AFTER GETTING THE PLASTIC PORTION DRIED,NOW ALTERNATIVELY BEND THE PLASTIC STRIPS OF IT AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

AFTER THAT BEND THE REMAINING STRIPS AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

NOW CUT THE EXCESS PORTION ON THE STRIP AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

AGAIN BEND THE STRIPS TILL THE END AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

AFTER DOING IT AGAIN CUT OFF THE EXCESS PORTION OF THE PLASTIC STRIP AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

AND FINALLY THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS AFTER FOLLOWING THE ENTIRE ABOVE PROCEDURE.(SHOWN IN THE LAST AND THE SECOND LAST IMAGE)

## Step 10: MAKING HOLES IN THE END

NOW PUNCHING ONE HOLES AT BOTH THE ENDS WITH PUNCHING MACHINE AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

## Step 11: PASSING CHAIN THROUGH THE HOLES

NOW TAKE ANY OLD SMALL CHAIN AN PASS IT THROUGH THE HOLES PUNCHED ON IT AND THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.
