- An empty plastic juice bottle with cap
- A plastic drinking straw
- A paper cup
- A pair of scissors
- A blue, a pink, a black and a white sheet of paper
- A black sketch pen
Step 1: Starting With The Plastic Bottle
Take an empty plastic bottle and dividing it into three parts in your mind, make a hole at the point where the last division starts from using a pair of nail kit scissors. See the picture below for reference.
Step 2: Making A Similar Hole In The Cup
Now, take the paper cup and make a similar hot at its top end using the same tool. See the picture below for reference.
Step 3: Fitting The Two Objects Together
Take the bottle and insert it in the cup up to the point where both the holes align with each other as shown in the picture below.
Step 4: Inserting The Straw In The Holes
Take a drinking straw and cut the longer part into a half. Now, pass its straight cut side through the two holes inserting it in the bottle and seal the straw just at the entry point of the bottle using a glue gun as shown in the picture below.
Step 5: Making The Elephant Face
Take a blue sheet of paper and draw the outline of an elephant’s head on it including its big flappy ears. Now, cut the shape out and outline it with black sketch pen. Make some outlines on the sides of its face as well to differentiate it from the ears. Then, taking a pink sheet of paper draw two shapes resembling the ears of the elephant. These shapes should replicate the ears of the blue elephant but should be a little smaller than them as well. Paste the pink ears in the middle of the blue ears of the elephant as shown in the picture below. Now, make the eyes using the white and the black sheets of paper and cutting them into circles before pasting them on the face of the elephant. Finally, make a small hole in the spot of the nose and a smiling mouth below. See the picture below for reference.
Your Craft Is Ready!!
Take the elephant face in your hands and fit the hole in the middle through the straw attached to the bottle. Take the straw out completely by bending the stretchable part down. Paste the elephant face to the bottle using liquid glue. Now, open the bottle and pour in some juice and block the open end of these straw using your finger while doing that. Close the bottle by putting the cap back. Place a small glass beneath the straw and open the lid to allow the juice to gush out of the dispenser. You will notice that the liquid only comes out when the lid is open not when it is shut. See the picture below for reference.
This completes the process of making this dispenser and I would classify it as a perfect blend of a craft and science activity. You learned to make an elephant face and to work with bottles, straws and cups in creating craft. Think of more such unique activities and skills to experiment and widen your range of art and craft. See you in many more tutorials to come. Till then, good luck and good bye.
