Magnet Faces ! Made From Plastic Bottle Tops !
Made From Plastic Bottle Tops !
These are really cute and easy to make, made from recycled bottle tops and tops from jars !
Just another one of my recycled projects as I said once before my brain is always swimming with ideas that's why I'm so glad I'm blogging to document it all and free up some free space in my brain !
All you need is some tops, a packet of googly eyes ( cheap from the $2 store) some glue and some magnets, if you are like me and people keep giving you magnets that advertise their companies then you will have plenty free of charge. Cut the magnets a little smaller then the top so you cannot see it from the front, some of them you will need to fit another top inside so it will fill the gap so the magnet will sit flush with the back. Then stick on the googly eyes and draw a smile using a permanent black texta.
How simple is that and I think they look really cute . If could also use old buttons for the eyes , you could also add other bits and pieces like some hair or fur or feathers , you could add some cotton wool to make the red one look like Santa. So get the kids around the table and have fun creating all sorts of cute and wonderful faces ! I f you don't have any tops around the house, when you go out walking get the kids to collect them from the ground that's also a great way of helping keep Australia beautiful , A win win for ever one ! Don't forget to wash them and their hands as well, of course !Happy crafting and recycling !
