❣DIY Boot Fairy House Lamp Using a Coke Plastic Bottle❣

In this tutorial I show you how I made a fairy boot house lamp using nothing but a coca cola plastic bottle, tin foil, paint, hot glue, copper wire and paper clay. This is a great way to teach children about recycling and also stimulate their creativity and imagination. I started by cutting the coke bottle in two pieces. I glued the pieces and used the upper part of the bottle to make the front of the boot and the bottom part to make the rest of it. As usual I add volume and elements to the house using tin foil. I then cover the foil with paper clay. I draw on the wet clay where the windows will be. Keep in mind that this will be a lamp so it would be nice to have lots of windows all around. You can work in one layer or, if you are a beginner you should work in two layers, one for covering the surface and the second one for the details like wood texture, bark, mushroom chimneys and stones. After the paper clay is dry you can easily add more details using tin foil and hot glue. For example I added a roof using some copper wire and tin foil to make the frame. I worked in two layers for the roof, one for the main structure and the second one for making and texturing the tiles. Let everything dry. For painting I used watercolors and acrylic paint. In the end you can seal the paint using some matte spray varnish. I placed some battery LED lights under the house. I recommend you use soft lights that will gently illuminate your windows so it looks like a real house. DON'T USE HOT LIGHTS!
