Hanging craft made with coke bottle and recycled beads

I have give the pictorial here.
For video tutorial, please click the link:

 Materials used:

Coke bottle, Nail polishes, Glitters, Glue, Glue gun, Scissors, Aluminium foil, Foam sheets, Thread, Straws, etc.


Cut the bottle into 2 parts.

 Put holes around the round edge of the bottle using punching machine.
 Color the bottle with different color nail polishes, and sprinkle glitters before, the nail polish get dried.

 Roll the aluminium foil into thin strips.
 Roll the foil strips around a tooth pick, to get beads.

I have made these beads by cutting the rice bag, and rolling the rice bag strips, in thought of recycling it. For more attractiveness, please use the normal beads.
 With using all these, join one by one, using needle and thread, and make a long chain. Make them to cover all the holes.
 Tie the bead chains through the holes.
 Make foam bead flowers, and fix the around the bottle edge.

 Make a bottle flower for the center hanging.
 Join the beads with the bottle flower, put a hole in the bottle cap and insert the center hanging through the cap and knot the thread on the other side of the cap.
 Now, a hanging bottle craft is ready to hang.
