-Paint is white, red.
-Glue moment, PVA.
-Carton is white, black.
First, take a bottle and cut a hole in it with the help of a clerical knife. We need to cut it carefully, since the cut piece of the bottle will serve us as a lid for the box. Here's what I got.
Then we take the wire, I took the aluminum, as it bends well. We cut two pieces 30 centimeters long and make the neck of the future swan. It will be necessary to remove the lid from the bottle, make two holes in it and insert the wire into them. Inside the lid we fix the ends of the wire.
The neck is almost ready, it remains only to give it a little volume. To do this, you will need to make tubes of newspapers. They are made easy. We take a knitting needle and a newspaper strip 2 cm wide. We put the needle on a strip at an angle of 45% degrees. Glue the end of the strip with PVA glue. Then it will be necessary to insert the wire through the tubes and wrap the wire with these tubes, which is attached to the bottle cap. Thus, the neck of the swan has become more voluminous. Only the upper ends of the wire do not need to be wrapped. Then they will be attached to the head of a swan. Everything, the cap needs to be screwed back to the bottle.
Now we need a newspaper, tear it into small pieces and glue our bottle inside and out. The cut out cover will also need to be glued as well. We take PVA as glue, but you can use a paste. This option will be more economical, as glue will need a lot.
After the glue has dried, take a white paint and paint the bottle from the inside and its bottom from the outside. The inside of the lid will also need to be painted.
While the paint dries, we will manufacture feathers for our swan. For this, I took white handles from plastic bags. If you do not have these, then just cut strips of polyethylene 4 centimeters wide and 40 centimeters long.
We fold these strips several times and cut the fringe from one edge, while not cutting to the end of the workpiece. Such blanks will require a lot.
Then, when the paint dries, we take one such blank, we turn it several more times to make a tube. An edge where there is no fringe, spread with glue and glue to the bottle. You need to start gluing from the bottom. To do this, take the glue moment or rubber.
Thus, we glue the whole bottle (except for painted surfaces). So do the lid.
After we have pasted the whole bottle, we will take care of the neck of the swan. To do this, we again need a strip of polyethylene 4 centimeters wide, and the length can be any. Fold the strip several times and cut the fringe again, not cutting to the edge. Then we straighten the fringe and wrap it around the swan's neck. You need to start from the bottom, fix the edges with glue.
Everything, the swan is almost ready, it remains only to make his head. First, it is better to make a pattern of the head on paper, and then cut it out of a piece of foam.
The head also needs to be pasted over with the newspaper.
When the glue dries, paint the head white.
While the paint dries, we will make a swan eye. To do this, take black and white cardboard, cut out blanks for the eyes from it. We glue them together, and then glue them on the head.
Paint the beak with red paint. Now it remains to put your head on the ends of the wire around the neck.
It remains to glue the head.Take polyethylene, cut it into strips 0.5 cm wide, 4 centimeters long. You need to glue one end of the strip with glue and stick it to the head.
Our swan box is ready. Inside you can put a different trifle, jewelry.
I hope you enjoyed the swan box. Goodbye.
