Water Bottle Flowers
By Melisa Kreamer
- You will need 1 water bottle for every flower you want to make. You want to use a water bottle with a bottom that looks like flower petals like this.
- Cut through the water bottle and cut off the bottom.
- You want to cut the flower pretty thin right to the indents of the bottom of the bottle. This will give you a thinner flower to sit on your project
- To create the indivdual petals cut into the side of the bottom of the bottle along the indents.
Only cut the sides for a fatter looking flower
or you can cut all the way down the indent for thinner flower petals.
- Flip over the flower and paint the concave side of the bottom.
For a see-thourgh mottled look only use 1 coat of paint. For a thicker more uniform color, you may need several coats of paint. I used acrylic craft paint for this.
- Once dry, flip the flower back over and decorate the center of your flower.
- Once done you flower is ready to be placed on your project. I made my flower for a
Mother's Day card.
