To decorate the site, you can make decorative garden vetryachok of plastic bottles. It is very easy and fun. A homemade can be made with the children. If you use a vivid colored plastic bottles, the windmill will turn out not worse purchase.
- plastic bottles of 2 liters – 2 PCs.;
- long tube or pole;
- a bamboo skewer.
The process of manufacturing windmill
In a plastic bottle for 2 l cut off the neck close to the middle and cut into 8 beams.
It is cut lengthwise, not reaching 2 cm to the cap. Then the rays are bowed outwards to bend, and are aligned at a right angle.
Next, they need to turn in a diagonally capturing only the upper area.
This will give them the characteristic shape of the blades of the wind turbine. Due to the bending they will get a stiffening rib, will keep shape and better respond to the wind.
The second plastic bottle is cut in the middle. To do this, cut the bottom and neck. The remaining part is dissolved along, to obtain a sheet.
The sheet is folded in half and from it cut a tail for the windmill.
In the future if you fix vetryachok on the rack is not hard, due to the tail when exposed to wind it will be able to turn the direction of airflow. For this to happen, the tail need to do is quite wide. Between the walls of the tail is embedded bamboo skewer, then plastic sheets are held together with an office stapler.
In a long pipe or poles making the hole diameter of the skewers. Then insert a skewer from the tail.
In the lid of the neck of the bottle with the blades also making the hole, but slightly larger diameter and it fits over the skewer.
Then the windmill is fixed another lid with a hole. So she did not fall, it must be paste by hot-melt. In such fixing structure can’t turn the wind, so the tail is just a decorative element. If to be provided at the front of the wind turbine the same axis of rotation as the skewer on the vanes vertical, while the direction of the wind the windmill will be to adapt to it, so it can rotate without stopping. The higher you place, the more active it will turn around.
Windmill from plastic bottles in addition to decorative and entertainment purposes can also be used to scare birds away from the site if they peck the strawberries, cherries, peaches, etc. In this case, it should be tied above the crown of the tree or set on the beds.
