On the body of one of the bottles I cut both sides to make 2 tabs. The cut is a little larger than the width of the bottle.
Next I taped the “tabbed”bottle to the bottom of the second bottle to make a foot shape. At this point you could paper mache and then paint or perhaps wrap in bandages and decorate with spiders etc to make a cool looking mummy’s foot or superman or batman boots for a birthday party., It’s up to the imagination. But as I am doing Christmas and using things around the house, I used the sleeve of a red sweater.
I inserted the bottle foot into a sleeve and tucked the cuff under and glued it. Then I stapled the top part of the sleeve and bottle. Staple flat side on the inside so as little hands cant be hurt.
Using part of the left over side I cut and painted a buckle shape for the trimmings. I used black elastic for the belt and sole of the shoe as that is what I had on hand, but it can be done with many things.
Fill with lollies, trinkets, decorations or plants etc and enjoy.Of course you could personalise it with a name tag for the kids or as a gift. 🙂
Insert a ribbon loop into the hole on the cap and tied off to create the hanger. Then I decorated using paper and homemade mod podge, ribbons etc..
