STOP! Don’t throw out those water bottles!

Some of us recycle bottles at the local recycling bins but have you ever thought of other things that can be done with them?

What you’ll need:

 

A small water bottle

Small pictures of butterflies

Scissors

6 different nail polish colors

Glue

Paper

Decorative stones

Step 3: Collect pictures of butterflies

 

Step 4: Glue the butterfly picture to be used on to a piece of paper

 

Step 5: With a black marker pen begin to highlight the main parts of the butterfly

 

Step 7: Continue to highlight the rest of the lines on the butterfly with the black marker

 

Step 8: Place the piece of paper with the butterfly on it behind the strip of plastic just cut from the water bottle

 

Step 9: Using again the black marker, trace the outline and internal lines to complete the butterfly picture on the plastic

 

Step 10: Now collect all nail polish colors

 

Step 11: Begin to color the butterfly with the nail polish colors preferred
