Water Bottle Floral Lights Assembly

  1. Using photo above as a guide, cut the top of water bottle, shaping the mouth of the bottle to be the green bud the flower blooms from.  Repeat for the number of flowers needed.
  2. Using photo above as a guide, cut the top of another water bottle, cutting off the mouth of the bottle, shaping it like a flower.  You can leave as is, or you can shape the flower petals using a heat/embossing gun.  See instructions here, Faux Flower Headband project.  Repeat for number of flowers needed.
  3. Again, using photo above as a guide, assemble each flower securing pieces with adhesive of your choice.
  4. Using craft wire, carefully attach each flower to a mini light (mini light should come up the mouth of the bottle so the light is illuminating the flower).  Repeat for number of lights/flowers on the mini light strand.
  5. Cut leaf shapes from green foam and attach to mini light cord with craft wire.  Repeat for desired number of leaves.
  6. Plug in and enjoy!
