DIY Plastic Bottle Topiary

Topiary - favorite home decoration for many needlewomen. The decorative tree is made out of coffee beans, napkins, cloth and other materials. I will show an example of creating a topiariya of plastic bottles and pine cones.

First we need to make a circle - the trunk, to which the green branches will stick. From a transparent white bottle, we cut out several rings of the same width and, using glue, make a circle of them.

Now we will cut stars out of green plastic,rhombuses and flowers of different configurations and sizes. We cut the edges of the blanks into narrow strips (1 mm), and then gently melt them over the fire. Strips will acquire the effect of crystal. We will only need to bend individual leaves at the base upwards, that is, to collect the blooming flower in a bud.

If necessary, break off tails at pine cones, otherwise attach their smooth plastic will be problematic. By the way, to facilitate the process of gluing parts, you can use pieces of foam rubber. First we glue the porous material to the base of the lump, and then the lump - to the topiary stem. Here our wealth is the result of painstaking half-hour employment. The colors are in harmony with one another.

Let's start work from the top of the tree. It will be decorated with the biggest cone. Next in a circle we let in a row of emerald greenery, and next below we begin to dilute the leaves with brown cones.

After pasting half of a circle, we stop work.We set aside the craft to the side, giving it the opportunity to dry. At the same time, we undertake the design of the lower part of the trunk.

We took a green neck and a rectangle (10x5 cm), cut off from the middle of the bottle. They rolled a rectangle into a tube and put it in the neck. The bottom of the tube was cut into centimeter stripes. The inner part of the trunk was treated with glue. In order not to hold the plastic with your fingers (for the gluing period), we simply tied it with a strong thread.  Topiary of plastic bottles
