  • Scissors
  • Acrylic paint (colors of your choice)

  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters

Instructions:

  1. I love to find plastic drink bottles that have intriguing designs embossed onto the sides! I don’t drink sodas so I ask my friends to keep their eyes open for fun bottles!

  2. Use a craft knife to puncture the side of the bottle and cut apart.

  3. Use scissors to cut out the side panel pieces and to clean up the cut edges of the bottle tops and the bottoms.

  4. Apply acrylic paint with cosmetic sponge by dabbing onto the inside (wrong side) of the plastic bottle. It may take several coats of paint to get a solid opaque coverage.

  7. To create the swirl in the end of the wire, use pliers to roll end and then continue to roll with fingers until you have created swirl of desired size. Cut wire to desired length to join two pieces together.

  10. If desired add other embellishments to wire. I found these doves at the dollar store. I drilled through them to turn them into beads.
