Plastic bottles are a very flexible material from which a huge variety of products can be made. The shape of the bottles vaguely resembles the body, and the lid is a pig's piglet, so why not make a decoration for the garden, a flower pot or a piggy bank.
It is necessary
- - 1 plastic bottle with a volume of 5 liters;
- - 5 plastic bottles with a volume of 1.5 liters;
- - scissors;
- - stationery knife;
- - acrylic paint;
- - pink color;
- - sponge;
- - brush;
- - markers;
- - a straw for cocktails.
Get everything you need ready. Wash the bottles thoroughly. Use a felt-tip pen or a marker you can write on plastic to mark the large bottle as needed. In the upper part, mark the required cut, its size depends on the purpose of the pig. If you are going to use a pig as a planter, then accordingly it should be large enough so that a pot of plants can easily fit into it. If you want to make a piggy bank, then the cut should be in the form of a small crack so that coins can pass through it.
On both sides of the top of the bottle, mark a spot for the pig's ears. On the opposite side, mark the place for the ponytail. On a smaller plastic bottle, draw the pig's ears at the top of the bottle.
Using a utility knife, carefully cut out the details of the ears. Make incisions where the ears and tail are attached. Cut a hole in the back of the future pig.
Tint the acrylic paint pink. Paint the large bottle with a sponge. Apply several coats of paint, each layer should dry completely. Paint the ear details on both sides in the same way.
After the paint is completely dry, you can start assembling and decorating the pig. In the lower part of the ears, make two cuts, the width between them should be equal to the width of the cut for the ears on the head of the pig. And the length is about 1.5-2 cm. Bend the resulting tongue and insert it into the incision on the head. Do the same with the second ear. Fold the cocktail straw in the shape of a pig's tail and insert into the prepared hole.
Now make the pig's face. On the bottle cap, draw two dots with a black felt-tip pen, so you get a patch. Draw eyes on the sides with felt-tip pens.
To make the pig stand confidently on the ground or shelf, make her hooves. Cut off the tops from four 1, 5 or 1 liter polyethylene bottles. Paint them pink. Cut openings for the legs on the abdomen and insert the cut pieces into them. Adjust the height of the legs empirically.
