I made this bottle person at summer camp last year. It was a really fun and inexpensive project that's good for little kids and
Here's What You Need:
A bottle. I used an orange juice bottle.
Crayola Model Magic. Any modeling clay would work, but this is the best type for this project.
Glue. Anything from Elmer's to hot glue would work.]
Paper scraps. The teacher had packages of patterened scraps that were supposed to look like fabrics.
Modge Podge. This is a MUST. You need A LOT of this for this project.
Plaster strips. You know, the stuff that you dip in water and smooth on the surface? Yeah, that. I forget what it's proper name is.
Here's What You Do:
1. Cover the bottle in the plastic strips.
2. Once it dries, paint it.
3. Take Model Magic and design a head for the bottle person. You can also make arms, legs, feet, etc. Be creative!
4. Paint the head and body parts.
5. Once the glue dries on the bottle, glue on scraps of paper.
6. Remove bottle cap. Glue on the head and body parts.
7.Once the glue dries, modge podge the entire thing.
8. Let dry and enjoy!
Some Extra Ideas:
I made mine a Picasso bottle, but you can do anything you want!
I haven't tried this, but I was thinking that if you make the head on the bottle cap, you can have a bottle that opens. You could store stuff in it, I suppose.
Here's some pics of mine!
