1x 1lt cool drink bottle

1x cutter or knife

1x pen marker

Some arts and crafts paint

A candle and matches

Iron

what to do

step.1 mark

  • Draw a line halfway through the1lt bottle around the circumference of the 1lt bottle.
  • Now draw the same kind of line on the 2lt bottle, but at the top. About 5cm from the top

step.2 cut

  • THE CUT THE MIDDLE of the 1 liter bottle TO MAKE TWO CONTAINERS

step.3 cut

  • Now also draw a line around the bottle just under the mouth of the piece of the 2lt bottle. Cut off that part. This will be your base for the pot

step.4 iron out

  • Under the strict supervision of an adult, smooth the edges of both bottles with a warm iron

    Remember to switch off the iron when not in use!!

step.5 make holes

  • Make 4 holes on all sides near the mouth of the 1lt bottle for drainage-about the size of a 10c coin. You can do this by heating up the tip of the knife first then pierce through the bottle

step.6 paint

  • Paint the 1lt bottle, as well at the top of the 2lt bottle-you can paint them different colours and allow to dry

step.7 place

  • Now place the 1lt bottle upside and place through the base…use the other half of the 1lt bottle also as a pot
