Steps To Make A DIY Wind Chime
Step 1- Prepare roof the plastic bottle
Let’s start with making the roof of the wind chime. We will make this roof with the help of a plastic bottle. Take the plastic bottle and with the help of a cutter, cut the bottle from the upper-middle part. You will get the top of the bottle. Now, get some shilpkar clay and soften it with your hands. Press and bind it to make it soft and usable. Roll the clay like dough and with the help of the bottle, roll prepare long sheet from the clay.
Step 2- Design the bottle with clay
Use the cap of the bottle to cut out small circles of clay sheet. Cut the clay just like we cut the cookie dough! Get multiple circles from the clay dough and stick these circles on the bottle evenly. Cover the entire bottle head with such circles. Now paint the clay circles with different colours. Apply double coats to get a smooth and thicker paint layer.
Take the dark blue shade and paint the entire bottle with this shade. Apply double coats of colour on the bottle to get a smoother look. Also, paint the top of the bottle and make a hole on the top. Once the bottle and paint get dry, you will get a beautiful bottle which has colourful circles on it! This looks stunning.
Once we have finished colouring, it’s time to decorate the bottle with beads and sequences. Stick the beautiful sequences on the bottle in a random fashion with the help of glue. Only stick the sequences on the dark blue portion of the bottle and not on the circles. This will give a glittering and glorious look to the bottle!
Step 4- Prepare the artificial bird
Below the bottle roof, we will hand a beautiful DIY bird to enhance the look of the wind chime. For making this bird, get the aluminium foil. Aluminium foil is easy to bend and fold and thus, we can get a beautiful bird shape out of this foil. Make the front of the bird while folding and preparing a trash of aluminum foil. Also, use the foil to make a head and neck while join a long thin foil wrap to make a perfect tail finish. Shape the foil in a bird’s body! And here’s a cool bird ready!
Step 5- Shape the bird and make it ready to hang
This is a rough shape of the bird and thus, for a perfect bird shape, we will need to wrap it with clay. Smoothen some clay and wrap it on the foil bird to make it attain a perfect bird shape. Stick the clay layers thoroughly and make a hole in the centre of the bird.
We need to hang this bird in a wind chime and thus, we will make the vertical hole in the bird. With the help of an aluminium wire, make a hole in the bird.
Step 6- Prepare the feathers of bird
This is a very interesting part where we will make the artificial feathers of this bird. Roll some clay in a thin strip and stick this thinly rolled clay on the body of the bird. Make a perfect shape of a feather on both the sides. Now use a toothpick to make the flares and design on the feather. This will make the birds feathers look extremely realistic and beautiful!
The bird now needs a beak and thus, make a beak shaped clay formation and stick it on the bird’s mouth.
Step 7- Colour and decorate the bird and add feathers
It’s now time to give some beautiful and natural colours to the bird. Start with the blue shade and paint the wings with different colours. You can also apply shades of yellow, pink, and blue, orange, brown and so on for making the bird look natural and stunning! Also, colour the eyes and beak of the bird.
Now, use the beautiful and colourful artificial feathers to make the bird look awesome! Paste the feathers on the back of the bird using glue and let it stick perfectly.
Step 8- Make the hanging with beads and decorative materials
Take a long thread and add the decorative hanging in the bottom of the thread. One by one, add the golden beads and pearls in the thread. Also, add the bird now and again stuff the thread with beautiful beads. Make a beautiful chain of golden, colourful and decorative beads on the bird.
Now, fix the golden chain in the bottle cap and stick it with the help of a glue gun. Close the bottle and paste the decorative golden lace on the end of the bottle. You can use the decorative lace with small bells which will make a melodious sound! Let the lace stick well to the bottle.

If you love to spend your time preparing some usable DIY crafts, here is a fantastic handmade jute bag which you can make at your home within few minutes!
Try this easy tutorial with 8 easy steps and a small and strong jute bag will be ready!
We need to prepare the cover of the bottle and so let’s start by using the buckram cloth. Take the cloth and mark measurements where the width is 10-12 inch while the length is 5 inches. Mark these measurement 1.5 inches above the base of the cloth. We are making this DIY jute bag using an old harpic bottle, so now get the bottle and use this cloth on the bottle. Place the bottle in such a way that the bottom of the bottle fits in the 5 inch height of the marked cloth.
Now troll the bottle in the buckram cloth and stick it with glue gun. Seal the cloth from every side using the glue gun. Let this glue sick properly. This bottle provides thickness and a proper shape to the bag.
Step 2- Seal the bottle in the cloth
As we started marking the cloth 1.5 inches above the base, we will get this area in the bottom of the bottle. Fold this area to make a smooth base. Fold the bottom cloth from all 4 sides and stick it properly using glue. You can wrap it just like a gift paper and give it a smooth finish. Now, one side of the cloth covered bottle is sealed.
Cut the upper part of the cloth where we made measurement marks previously. These marks will cut the top of the cloth from the front. The front top of the bottle is now visible and back is yet covered.
We now need to paste the jute strands on the paper. Apply some glue on the cloth and start wrapping the jute strands on the cloth. Start from the upper end and wrap in a circular manner. Keep applying glue and wrapping the jute till the bottom. Also cover the base of the bottle with this jute strands and cut the extra jute while sticking the edges.
Now that we have gained a proper shape and thickness for a bag, remove the harpic bottle from the jute cloth. We now have a cool and thick bag base prepared!
Step 4- Prepare the flap of the bag
Once you remove the harpic bottle, now its time to finish the top or closing of the bag. We have a long square flap which we need to trim into a curvy shaped closing. Draw an arc/half circle on the cloth and cut it with a scissor. Now we have a perfect flap which looks great when closed. We also need to give a jute finish to the flap and thus, start wrapping jute on the flap.
Starting from the bottom, apply layers of glue and wrap jute strands on it. Lightly and smoothly apply jute on the flap.
Step 5- Prepare the belt
We will prepare the belt from in the same technique and thus, we will use jute and buckram cloth for it. Take another buckram cloth and take measurement of 1 inch width. Keep the belt long as possible which you can carry comfortably. Cut this 1 inch wide and long stripes with a scissor. If the strips are not long enough, stick 2 strips and make a long strip.
Broaden the long strip on the table and make it flat. Apply glue on the strip and paste the jute strand on the cloth. You will need to make 5-6 such layers of juts strands on the cloth. Fill the entire strip with jute and let it get dry.
We need to colour the bag and thus, for a shading effect, we will use packaging tapes. Stick the packaging tape on the jute box. Also apply a second layer below the first packaging tape. Keep continuing till the base of the jute bag. Once the complete jute bag is covered with tapes in layers, now it’s time to colour the bag. Spray the jute bag with copper acrylic spray cover the front, back and the belt with this spray.
Now remove all the packaging tapes form the bag. This will give a beautiful shades and layered colour effect on the bag!
Step 7- Decorate the bag
Now that we have prepared a beautiful jute bag with the best shades, its time to add he buckle. We will use Velcro for easy and smooth closing/ opening. Paste the Velcro on the inner side of the flap with the help of glue. Also stick it’s another side on the bottom of the jute bag while taking correct measurements.
To decorate the jute bag, now we need the decorative laces and beads. Get a beautiful decorative pearl lace and stick it in the inner part of the flap. Frame the flap with this beautiful pearl chain. Also use this chain to frame the opening of the bag. Now use a decorative stone to stick on the flap. This will look like a beautiful button for opening and closing the bag.
Step 8- Attach the belts and give finishing touches
It’s now time to give an exceptional and beautiful finishing touch to the bag, in the bottom, stick some decorative laces. Attach the belt with the bag.

Things You Will Need To Make A DIY Waste Bottle Craft
We are now to prepare a beautiful bird from a waste plastic bottle. Thus, grab any plastic bottle with long neck which can suit the shape of the bird. Get a long aluminium wire and cut it around 16 inches long. Now bend the aluminium wire from the centre and press the ends together. Prepare a shape resembling the neck of a swan.
From the bottom, the wire must be straight and at the top, it gets curved. Now stick this wire to the plastic bottle. Stick the wire on the bottle with the help of packaging tape.
Step 2- Wrap the bottle with layers
Wrap the packaging tape form the bottom of the wire to the top of the bottle to ensure that the wire is properly stuck with the bottle and will stay stable. Cut the tape with a scissor and join the end. Now, we will need an aluminium foil to make a thick and shaped neck of the bird. For this, wrap the aluminium foil on the top of the bottle. The foils are easily wrapped on the materials and will gain a natural shape.
Keep on wrapping layers of aluminium foil on the bottle as well on the neck-face shaped wire. Make the layers thick and tidy to showcase the shape. Also cover the face of the bird. With this, you will get a beautiful shape of the bird with thin neck and a broad swan lie face. Cover the entire bottle with this foil.
Once you have gained the shape using aluminium foil, it’s now time to give a perfect stylish look to the bird. For this, take a bowl and pour some glue in it. Apply glue on the aluminium foil and paste the tissue papers on it. Layer the tissue papers and stick these with the help of glue and brush. Apart from the mouth, cover everything with tissue papers and glue.
Now we need to prepare a beautiful long beak of the bird. For this, use the small strips of the plastic bottle. Cut long and slim beak shaped stripe from the bottle and paste it to the face of the bird. Stick it to the area with aluminium foil with the help of glue. Stick a strip in upwards direction while one on the downwards which will get a shape of open beak of the bird.
Step 4- Prepare the face of the bird
Take the shilpkar clay and soften it with your hands. Press and fold the clay and make it smooth to apply. Paste this clay on the face of the bird. Cover the complete face with the help of clay. Smooth up the clay with your fingers after sticking to get a clean and perfect face shape. Blend it with the tissue paper layer.
Step 5- Colour the bird
We have prepared a beautiful shape of the bird and now, we need to colour it for a finishing touch. This bottle has gained the shape of a swan or duck and thus, we will colour it with the natural white and blue shades. Start colouring the bird from the face with white shade. You can use blue shade from the middle and give the best shading effects. Try to imitate the natural colour of ducks.
Colour the duck completely using white, light blue and little yellow shades. Make sure you keep the face white and apply shading effects.
Step 6- Add finishing touches
For the finishing touches, colour the beak of the duck in yellow colour. Paint the plastic bottle with thick yellow coats to get a smooth and fine colour. This will make the bird look so natural and beautiful. Also we need to make the eyes of the bird. For this, get 2 glittery pearls and stick it on the sides of the face. Paint the pupil of eye with black colour and two eyes are ready!
