Recycled Bird House

Emmy Williams

Before you throw away those plastic soda bottles consider recycling them into beautiful bird houses that can provide a living space for local birds in your community.

You will need: 1 plastic bottle(2liter or 45 fl oz), 1 piece of ribbon or wire, 1 newspaper, sushi rice, masking tape, box cutter or sharp knife, rice cooker, blender and colorful indoor outdoor paints( your choice).

 

Prepare the bottle by wrapping wire or ribbon around the neck of the bottle to make a loop that will hang the bird house.

 

Cute a hole big enough for a small bird to enter (children let your parents do this part). Safety first!

Take masking tape and secure the ribbon or wire to the neck of the bottle.

Fold dry paper strips and form a mold around the top of the bottle and use making tape to secure it. This will form the shape and look of the top of the bird house.

Take dry news paper with masking tape and form from the bottom of the bottle to make a wider bottom that will give more even look to the bird house.

After you have the top and bottom of the bottle wrapped in dry paper and secured with making tape you will begin to paper Mache the entire bottle from top to bottom.  I use a rice glue paste that I make from sushi rice and I just take strips of paper dipping them in the white milky mixture and shaping it around the bottle top to bottom.  You can use paper Mache (flour salt water) if you don’t want to use rice glue mix.

Once the bottle is completely wet and looks fairly smooth and even. It’s time to let it dry.   Outdoors in sun 80- 90 degrees will dry it in about 2 hours or less.  In doors will take about 24 hours.

Once the bird house is dry it is time to paint.  Make sure you are using indoor outdoor paints that have varnish gloss coating. This will help keep your bird house weather proof on rainy days.  You can use other materials to decorate your bird house and make it have more character be creative and have fun!

MADE IN AMERICA ? OBAMA SHOULD PUT THE SMACK DOWN ON JOB CREATION

I am so tired of writing letters to our Senators/Obama/ local politicians.  I just want to get back to work and back to my life *living my American Dream. Right now its more like a nightmare and FEAR.NET is the channel I’m stuck on.  Obama has beat the job creation horse into the ground.  Ive been stuck in Arkansas in a rural area (Cato) unemployed not collecting lint from  inside my purse! I was determined to get behind him and email blast the senators (Republican and Democratic)!  Two years have past and I am still getting those generic email responses in my inbox.  Take a look at my last letter  and let me know if  Iam alone or is there other people out there  writing and trying to get back to work ? 

Sincerely

Emmy Williams

Senator /President   ,

 My name is Emmy Williams, Since March 3, 2010; I was terminated from Employment at the Tropicana Hotel/ Casino (Las Vegas, Nevada) Resort.  I was denied unemployment.  My life has been a rollercoaster ride of hardships ever since. I am currently living in Arkansas (rural) with my elderly parents. I am desperately seeking employment.  I understand that election time is around the corner and you need votes. Arkansas is such a poor state that has limited resources for the many people who need help with jobs, housing, and food.  I cannot imagine how homeless people survive in this state.

 I am writing to you because President Obama has legislation that can open up job opportunities to those of us Americans whom desperately are trying to create small businesses that will strengthen our economy.  I know you might not be on board to pass every piece of legislation but can you pass some of it so we can get back to work.  I have been working hard to get a recycling business off the ground with no financial support.  I am seeking support from anyone whom understands the need for recycling. I am asking if you could just visit the sites I have created and share them with your supporters (via face book, twitter, etc) and maybe one of them can help me get my recycling business off the ground!  It would be great if I could raise enough money to put a green mobile unit on the road that would travel around the country to local markets / fairs educating and promoting recycling to our youth..

Please take a moment of your time to visit my websites.  Sign the guest book or become a member.  I am in need of donations and support.  Everything you see on the Sites (graphics, articles, and blogs) is done with no help from others. I am a self starter   and very excited about the future in a recycling business.

 Sincerely,

  Emmy Williams
