YARN WRAPPED PLASTIC BOTTLES - Shampoo bottle recycle craft

We love this very simple craft project and included this idea, once again to our fave list during our holiday workshop.

Alternately, one can paint these vases, if painting is preferred. Check out our previous post on how we painted some lovely vases.

Choose the yarn (left over yarn can be so useful), plan the pattern, cover the part to be wrapped with glue and start rolling. We used PVA glue (fevicol) and it works very well. Try picking bottles of different shapes and not to forget the duct tape to cover the rough edges.

Transformed! Aren't they? They looked so charming, that we displayed them in our art display area and we received many rave reviews :))

So go on, enjoy making them. Share your creations with us here or on FB - we'd LOVE to view them :)


  1. This is so clever and colorful idea! It's a perfect way to recycle your shampoo bottles. I am happy to learn something new. Best regards

  2. Thanks for your visit and the lovely comments, Shelly! It is one of our favorite recycling projects. Best Wishes

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.

Durga Puja and Dussehra

Happy Durga Puja and Dussehra to all!
For all our readers who love madhubani art, here is our Goddess Durga in madhubani style of painting.

As the children delve into the interesting Dussehra and Durga Puja activities, here are some of the activities we enjoyed doing during the festive break.
Easy drawing and coloring/ painting Goddess Durga and Ravana. Making a shield and sword using cardboard.Making bow and arrows using cardboard and paper.Learning to make Rangolis. It was pretty easy to draw 'Ravana' with his ten heads. We first made a large 'U' added ears to it and continued till we counted ten heads. Adding the crown and the details on the face completes the heads. Then make the body and the flames and it is time for some colouring.
Now for some artworks created by 5 to 9 year olds during this session.

Have fun this festive season and enjoy creating!
