You can make a lot of interesting crafts from waste material. And in this lesson we have a watering can craft from a can. The craft combines waste material and paper, making it easy and simple.
Materials for work:
- Tin can of any desired size;
- Orange, yellow and white paper;
- Orange cardboard;
- White glue;
- Scissors, compasses, ruler, simple pencil.
Watering Can Craft Step by Step
At the beginning of work on the craft, you should prepare a jar. To do this, it is desirable to remove the label so that the dark pattern does not show through the paper.
Then prepare a strip of orange paper. To do this, wrap the jar with paper and mark its height and circumference.
Cut off the strip.
Wrap it around the jar and glue it on. White glue works well for this task, but can also be glued with double-sided tape.
Now we need to make a handle and spout for the watering can. Cut two strips of orange cardboard, for the handle you need a longer strip and narrower. Also cut out the circle. It can be immediately supplemented with small dots that will imitate holes in a watering can.
Bend the ends of the long strip, apply glue to the bent area and glue to the side of the can.
Glue a thicker strip opposite the handle. Bend its tip obliquely and glue an orange circle of cardboard to it. You need to glue in the center of the circle.
The watering can craft is ready. If desired, it can be decorated with applique, drawings. Everything that your own imagination tells you.
