If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know that I like to recycle stuffs for crafts. Today, I’m very happy for the craft that I’m sharing with you is totally, 100%, originally MINE 😀
I sat for hours looking at the Vitagen bottles piling up in the recycling box in my kitchen. Yes, I have boxes in the kitchen labelled “plastic“, “glass“, “paper” and “others“. We ALL need to do our part for the environment, don’t we? After hours and hours of looking at the bottle, I finally came out with THIS. I’m so happy (oh yes, I’ve said that already :D).
Alright, enough of talking and let’s get to back to business. A friend of mine calls this elephant ELEGEN, so ELEGEN it shall be 😀 Ladies and gentlemen, presenting….
Elegen, the Vitagen Elephant 🙂
Draw a circle, cut and paste to cover the ‘mouth’ of the bottle.
Use small strips of paper and paste until you’ve covered the entire bottle.
Cut 2 long strips of paper. I used two different colors.
Fold on top of each other and then paste as the trunk.
Cut 2 ears out of colored craft foam and paste.
Cut four strips out of colored craft foam and glue the ends to form a loop.
Paste onto the elephant as the legs.
Glue a pipe cleaner as the tail.
I stick an oval craft foam at the end for maximum cuteness effect 😀
