Do you like those animal or bird planters you see in exquisite public gardens? Bring style to your home as well. You won’t believe how easy it is to make a beautiful outdoor decoration in the shape of a swan just out of DIY materials. Improve the aspect of your garden in a matter of hours. All you have to do is pay attention to these instructions and grab the following list of materials:
• a 5 L plastic bottle;
• a sharp cutter;
• a metal stick;
• a couple of metal grill;
• a brush;
• orange and black paint;
First, cut off a big hole in the side of the plastic bottle. Fill the PET with soil and punch a small orifice in the lid. Take a metal stick and bend it (maybe use a hammer) in an S-shape manner. Place the stick in the lid. Apply a coat of clay over the bottle, just like in the photo, leaving the neck (although excluding the lid) free for the time being. Grab the two metal grills and press them into each side of the bottle. Do this while the clay has not dried. Use your hands and fingers to apply clay on it and fashion the wings of your swan.
Then, cover the metal stick with clay. But use some medical cloth to wrap it. This will make the neck and head of the swan more elegant and smooth when you apply afterward another coat of clay. Let it dry for a couple of hours before painting the eyes and beak. It looks great! Place your plant in it and marvel at what you did with your own hands.
