Materials Needed:

  • 12 clean glass soda bottles
  • a wooden fruit crate
  • red, white and blue acrylic paint
  • foam paintbrush
  • popsicle sticks
  • plastic cups
  • hemp or jute rope
  • hot glue gun and sticks
  • grosgrain ribbon (in 2 colors)

Paint Crate

Repurpose an old fruit crate or buy one at a craft store. Paint the crate with white acrylic craft paint using a foam paintbrush.

Paint Bottles

Clean 12 soda bottles with a rag and acetone (image 1). Mix equal parts blue acrylic paint with water in a plastic cup (image 2). Repeat this step with red paint. Pour the watered down paint into the bottle, and spin the bottle around to completely cover the inside (images 3 and 4). Pour the excess paint in the bottle back into the plastic cup (image 5). Paint six blue bottles and six red bottles.

Make Rope Rings

Cut links of jute rope long enough to easily fit over the bottlenecks when made into rings. Apply a generous amount of glue to one of the cut rope ends. Press the ends firmly together until glue dries completely, about 30 seconds. Once dry, apply glue to the outside of attached ends and attach ribbon. Make five rings with blue ribbon and five with red ribbon (image 1). Gather your friends in your backyard for a fun game of ring toss (image 2).
