Summer ends, but beautiful bright butterflies can stay with you. Make them yourself using an empty plastic bottle. To cope with this project is simple, but this decor looks very impressive.

For the project will need:

  • Clean plastic bottles;
  • butterfly drawing;
  • sharp scissors;
  • iron;
  • sheets of paper;
  • press (for example, several books);
  • office clips;
  • permanent marker;
  • stained glass contour;
  • nail polish;
  • stained paints;
  • sequins, beads, decor yarn;

Print a butterfly drawing or translate it onto paper by placing the sheet directly on the monitor. In the second case, immediately outline the drawing with a pencil, and then circle it with a marker or felt-tip pen.

Prepare a bottle. To do this, remove the label and cut the part where there are no traces of glue. You can use bottles of different colors. Cut out the center of the cylinder.

Cut the cylinder in half into two identical pieces. From each can get one butterfly. Secure the plastic to the patterned pattern using the stationery clips. In the middle of the picture, you can additionally attach tape.

Now it is necessary to transfer the drawing to plastic. The most effective decor will look if done with the help of the contour on the glass. You can replace it with a permanent marker. Wait until the drawing on the plastic is completely dry, and only then remove the clips.

Cut the butterfly, slightly protruding beyond the contour line. Place the workpiece between two blank sheets of paper and iron a hot iron. Leave the butterfly to cool down under the press (for example, put a few heavy books on top). Paint the finished butterfly with stained paints or nail polish. You can add decoration of sequins, beads or colored yarn.
