Crafts: Farm Animal Bottle Bowling


This post contains affiliate links. For more information please see my Terms of Use and Disclosure Policy page. Thank you.

For my daughter's Farm Themed Birthday party, I created a set of Farm Animal Bottle Pins for bowling.  They also worked great as decorations that the kids could play with during the party. 



Materials
  • clean plastic bottles of various shapes and sizes (we used milk, veggetable juice, and soda bottles)
  • paint (that is appropriate for plastic)
  • markers
  • drop cloth 
  • paint brushes 

Steps

1. Gather all materials.  (Before you start your project, clean the bottles to remove any liquids, tape, or glue.)

2. Paint your bottles the appropriate colors.  I choose to make three cows (white), two pigs (pink), and one chicken (yellow).


3. After the bottles are dry, draw on the faces and other details.

For your chicken you will need to draw on eyes, beak, and feathers.  For the cow, you will need o draw on eyes, a mouth, nose, ears, and spots (if you choose to make a Holstein). For your pig, you will need to draw on eyes, a mouth, nose, and tail on the back.


4. Complete the animals by painting (or using markers) to finish the details. I used a combination of painting the details and drawing them on with Sharpie markers.  The markers had a tendency to pull the paint off the bottles.
