Materials

To make from the coconut offered options for crafts, you will need to prepare:

    • coconut shells, sawn into two equal parts;
    • thin paper;
    • glue;
    • bamboo skewers;
    • wire cutters;
    • file;
    • joinery glue or a strong adhesive, which becomes clear when dried;
    • paint;

Step 1. First you will need to prepare halves of coconut, in which there are holes, traditionally cut out for air and drinking coconut milk.

  • To close them we will use the papier-mache technique with you. Simply paste paper in these places and lubricate it with glue and give it a little time to dry it. A few layers of paper will be enough.
  • Such a workpiece will need to be left until the material dries completely.

Step 2. After this, you need to clean the shell of coconut, for this purpose it is best to use sandpaper.

Step 3. Next, cover the workpiece under the bowl with the paint of the color that suits you. Lay as many layers as you see fit. Make sure that the surface is evenly painted.

Step 4. After all, leave the workpieces until the paint dries.

Step 7. Stands under the bowl connect together also with bamboo skewers. Adjust them along the length.
