Concrete and plastic vase

Necessary material :

  • plastic bottle
  • iron
  • plastic tray
  • painting
  • masking tape

Implementation steps:

  1. Cut the bottle in half, a little higher than half.
  2. Heat the edges of the cut part with an iron, protected with parchment paper. The plastic begins to melt and fold back into the bottle.
  3. Start by preparing a small amount of cement to cover the base of the mold (in the tutorial below we use a box of coffee capsules) of the mold. Spread out the cement and tap the mold to chase air bubbles. Let stand for fifteen minutes for the concrete to harden a little.
  4. Put the bottle in the mold and fill the rest of the box to the edge. Wait at least 2 hours before removing the carton. Let dry completely.
  5. Once dry, sand the sides of the vase, if necessary, let it dry a little longer. To personalize the vase, lay pieces of masking tape diagonally and paint geometric patterns.

Half-moon earrings in corks

Necessary material :

  • cork wine stoppers
  • a tip or a needle
  • a hook
  • a metal rod
  • round pliers
  • colored markers

Implementation steps:

  1. Start by cutting the cork into round slices of such thickness that you will drill holes (about ½ cm). You will need 4 washers in total. Cut the washers in half.
  2. Using a point, drill a hole down the puck, through the middle. To add color, color some semicircles with a felt. Unlike acrylic paint, the felt shows a bit of the natural texture of cork. If you want, you can paint with acrylic paint. Let it dry before spraying with clear lacquer to protect the color and give shine.
  3. Take a metal rod and twist a loop at the end using round forceps. Thread the semicircles and cut the excess iron wire. Put some glue to fix. Attach the hook.

Tealight flower lotus in plastic spoons

  • a cutter

To make this beautiful candle holder in the shape of a lotus, first cut the stems of the plastic spoons with a cutter. Give the spoon heads a golden spray of paint. Let dry. Glue them with hot glue all around the candle holder. Paste them so that they overlap slightly. To get a shape reminiscent of the lotus flower, glue the second and third row spoons against each other.

DIY hot-air balloons

Necessary material :

  • bulbs
  • erasable black marker
  • black felt resistant to water
  • Relief ring tube
  • instant adhesive
  • he cotton or thin rope
  • jewel charm with hole for thread

Production :

  1. Clean the ampoules thoroughly with a sponge and soap.
  2. Using the erasable marker, draw the details of the balloon. Then, iron the contours of the drawing with the relief tube. To make it easier for you to apply the paint, place the ampoules standing in a bowl filled with sugar. If you want to put a little color on your hot air balloon, let it dry the relief and decorate with colored felt pen.
  3. Pass the thread through the charm and glue it to the strong glue on the top of the bulb.

Suspended Pooh shelf made from a shoe box

Necessary material :

  • shoe box without the lid
  • cord or rope
  • decorative pattern paper
  • tape
  • stickers
  • rule
  • pencil
  • felt
  • cutter
  • pair of scissors
  • glue

Steps to follow :

  1. Draw the outline of the animal you have chosen on the front and back of the box. Draw a diagonal on each side of the box. Cut the box along the marked lines. Here, the back of the box has been left longer to make the shelf more stable.
  2. Drill four holes in the bottom of the box, 1.5 cm from the sides and 2.5 cm from the front and back of the box.
  3. Decorate the shelf. Dress the cardboard with decorative paper. Feel free to use decorative paper with a variety of patterns for a fresh design.
  4. Stick stickers for the eyes and nose of the teddy bear and draw the details in the felt.
  5. Determine the length of the suspension. In this tutorial, we cut two strings, one of a length of 71 cm and the other of 79 cm. Pass the string through the holes. Make a knot 5 cm from each end of the string. Adjust the knots as needed.

Necessary material :

  • tubes of empty toothpaste or hand cream
  • pair of scissors
  • pastel color paint spray (pink, green)
  • Velcro band
  • extra strong glue
  • Enamel points

Production :

  1. Start by cutting the top of the toothpaste tube, a little lower than at the plug. Clean the inside of the tube well.
  2. Fold the cut-away side down by pressing to mark the fold. Cut along the sides of the tube to the folds you have just made. Then cut along the fold line on one side of the tube. Now you must have some kind of flap. If you want, you can round off the corners of the shutter to give it a curved shape.
  3. Do the bomb painting. Give a few strokes of paint to the cover. Let it dry completely before gluing two pieces of Velcro, one on the flap and the other on the front of the pouch.
  4. If you wish, decorate your wallet with stickers or enamel dots.
