    Put the lower parts from the bottles to the side, and form the frog legs from the upper ones: with a felt-tip pen on plastic, draw the contours of the legs and cut them out.


    Do not forget to paint the frog with green paint

    Advice! It is better if the hind legs are slightly larger than the front.

    After the blanks are cut, we take a green paint and paint all the elements for crafts.

    Our frog will not be simple, but a princess,therefore, we will make a real crown for her. Now we need the remaining 0.5 liter bottle. It is necessary to measure with a ruler from the neck 6-8 cm (this is the height of the future headgear), then use the felt-tip pen to draw the teeth, cut along the contour and paint in a golden hue.

    As soon as all the elements of the product are dry, theycan be assembled. To do this, you need to take an awl, heat and make a hole in the lid on the crown, in the bottom of the green blank, the one that is lower. Connect the 2 elements through the holes using wire.

    Now you need to attach the legs to the future body of the frog: we pierce the workpiece with a heated awl on the sides and attach the hind legs to the holes, the front legs will be attached to the bottom.


    The frog will look great in your garden among flowers or on a green lawn

    We insert 2 sides, top and bottom, into each other, so that the craft stands better, sand can be added inside the body. Finally, draw eyes, mouth, nose, and other necessary elements.
