Recycle a water bottle into your own retro room decoration! Crayola® Twistables make it easy to create a distinctive batik look.
Batik fabric has been used for thousands of years in Asia, South East Asia, and Africa, so it’s really retro. Batik was popular in the 1960s, too, and the style is back again! Use a batik effect to make a windsock to decorate your room. Here’s how.
Ask an adult to cut off the bottom and neck of a recycled plastic water bottle using Crayola Scissors.
Design batik paper. Look at some samples of batik for design inspiration. Sunbursts, lizards, and geometrics are just a few possibilities. Measure and cut white paper to fit around the center of your water bottle. Fill the paper with Crayola Twistables color. Make several layers for intense hues. Attach your batik paper to the bottle with Crayola School Glue.
Add hanging decorations. Punch several holes along the bottom edge of the bottle. Punch two holes at the top to use for hanging.
With Crayola Model Magic, form stars, flowers, or other shapes to hang from the windsock. Air-dry your shapes for 24 hours.
Decorate the rest of the water bottle using Crayola Washable Window Markers and Twistables. Decorate and cut strips of paper to hang below or beside your shapes, too.
Decorate the Model Magic Shapes with Crayola Washable Window Markers.
Glue the shapes and your paper strips to yarn or ribbon. Air-dry the pieces. Tie them in the bottom holes of the water bottle.
Tie yarn through the top holes to hang your windsock. Hang it indoors to catch a gentle breeze!
