Step 1: Cutting The Plastic Bottle
Use the knife to cut the plastic bottle from the bottom in order to get two circular frames for the eye glass.
Step 2: Placing The Plastic Eye Glass Frames
You have to cut the bottom of the plastic bottle into two circular hollow halves. This is the frame for our eyeglass. Place them side by side on a table.
Step 3: Cutting The Straw
Use the scissor to cut the wavy portion of the straw carefully from the middle.
Step 4: Stretching The Straw
Now that we have cut out the wavy portion from the straw, we will pull it from the two opposite ends and stretch it. This will elongate the straw.
Step 5: Bending The Straw
After elongating the straw, bend it downwards from the middle. Press gently, do not rush.
Step 6: Cutting The End Of Straw
Use the scissor to cut off both the edges of the straw. Be careful.
Step 7: Using The Glue Gun
Put some gum on both the edges that are now cut from the straw.
Step 8: Joining The Frames With The Straw
Now stick each end of the straw on either side of the frames previously cut off. Our frame for the eyeglass is ready.
Step 9: Making The Holders Of The Eye Glass
Use the straw now to make the side holders of the eyeglass. See that your straw shape matches the above picture.
Step 10: Sticking The Holders To The Frames Of Eye Glass
Stick the wavy end of the straw to the side of the plastic bottle circular frame with glue. Do the same on both the frames. Our frame holders are ready. The DIY eyeglass is almost ready. Let’s give the final touches to it.
Step 11: Cut The Straw End For The Tips Of The Eye Glass
Use the scissor to cut the ends of another straw. This cut off straw ends will form the tips of our eye glass.
Step 12: Finishing The Eye Glass
Use gum to join the cut off tips of the straw to the holders of the eye glass. Let it dry.
