You will need: an orange juice bottle; lots of tape; cardboard; paint; a bottle with a screw top like a tomato sauce bottle; a can of drink; a toilet paper roll; a small cardboard box of something that could fit (a very tight fit) in the orange juice bottle; MORE TAPE.


tildee tutorial imagefirst cut the handle off the orange juice bottle then cut then handle in half and then stick it back on but facing outwards more so that there is a gap between the two halves of it. then tape the coke bottle in the gap with equal sides sticking out so it looks like the picture below

you are now done, hooray! if you wish to paint your now you can or if you wish to make it a little more sturdier you can get some paper and tape it around the edge. *note depending on the bottle the paint doesn't stick as well so you might have to add more than one coat
