Zainab has been collecting metal bottle tops and corks for a very long time.
So she decided to use them to do a recycling art project. You will need
the help of an adult for cutting the corks because they are difficult
to cut through.
Metal bottle tops
(or plastic ones if you like but
metal ones look nicer and shiny),
(we used a hot glue gun
but you will need an adult to help you)
First of all Zainab arranged the cork pieces onto the plain
canvas, you could paint the canvas first if you like. She made the trunk,
from the corks which were cut in half. This makes them easy to stick.
Then the corks were cut into circles for the branches.
After placing the tree trunk and branches down, she
arranged the different coloured bottle tops around the tree.
Each colour is a fruit, the light green ones are green apples,
the blue ones are blueberries, the red ones are cherries and
the dark green ones are the leaves.
Once everything was in place the pieces were hot glued to the canvas.
Hope you like the Fruity Tree!
The birds were circular cork pieces cut in half.
The corks were also cut into strips for some
of the fruit that are hanging from the tree
and for the ones that have fallen onto the golden ground.
