Intro: Vitamins Bottle Truck

In this instructable you will be making a truck from recycled materials.

You will need:

- plastic medicine bottle,

- four wheels (you can order on eBay or AliExpress websites),

- 1.5 mm thickness metal wire or 2 mm thickness metal wire,

- pliers (preferably two),

- one thick nail,

- and hammer.

Step 1: Hammer in Back Wheel 1 Hole

Use hammer to hammer in the nail to make the hole and then take the nail out with pliers or hands.

You might be able to just push in the nail with the pliers, depending on the thickness of the bottle material.

Step 2: Hammer in Front Wheel 1 Hole

Use hammer to hammer in the nail to make the hole and then take the nail out with pliers or hands.

You might be able to just push in the nail with the pliers, depending on the thickness of the bottle material.

Step 3: Hammer in Back Wheel 2 Hole

Use hammer to hammer in the nail to make the hole and then take the nail out with pliers or hands.

You might be able to just push in the nail with the pliers, depending on the thickness of the bottle material.

Step 4: Hammer in Front Wheel 2 Hole

Use hammer to hammer in the nail to make the hole and then take the nail out with pliers or hands.

You might be able to just push in the nail with the pliers, depending on the thickness of the bottle material.

Step 5: Widen the Holes With Scissors (optional)

This step is optional because the holes might be already wide enough for the metal wire in the next step. You should only do this step if the metal wire is not going in.

Put the edge/end of the scissors inside each of the holes and spin gently only two or three times. Take the scissors out and see if the metal wire is going in.

Warning! Do not use force and do not do this step fast or you might cut your self with scissors.

Step 6: Insert Metal Wire at Back

Insert the metal wire for the back wheels.

For this step you will need to remove the bottle cap to see the metal wire inside so that you can more easily put it through the second hole. You might need to be patient.

You can see on the photo that the back wheel are already attached.

Step 7: Attach Back Wheels

Attach the back wheels, bend and cut the metal wire as shown on the photos.

Step 8: Attach Front Wheels

Attach the front wheels. You are basically repeating the last two steps.

You are now done. You can play with the truck or give to someone else that can play with it.

    Oh my. What a great idea for making "generic" toys for children. I can already imagine encouraging kids to decorate these themselves. Cool beans.
