Soda Bottle Hour Glass

 

A couple of weeks ago I made boats for my daughter out of the bottom of old plastic soda bottles. I saved the tops of the cut up bottles & wanted to use them for something or throw them out. Since you know that I hate throwing anything out, I had to make something quick.

Soda Bottle Hour Glass

What you will need:

2 plastic soda bottles (Whatever size that you choose) We used 20 oz bottles

Cardboard

Rice

Food Coloring

Hot glue or Crazy Glue

Paint

 

Directions:

Cut the top off of 2 old plastic soda bottles. Remove the caps. Rinse out the insides & dry well.

Glue the wide end of one of the bottles to a cardboard square. If using hot glue, be careful as you can easily melt the plastic. Squeeze out the glue onto the rim before it is too hot .
