  • The first thing you should have are 3 plastic bottles of different colors.

  • 2 screws.
  • You also need a ruler
  • Finally a square wooden board.


Cutting tool.

  • To start, open two holes in the wooden board.
  • Then place two washers, one on top of the other in one of the holes. Then place the cutting blade in which you have made a hole.
  • The next step is to thread the screw through the hole until it screws into the wood.
  • Then place in the next hole in the wood two more washers.
  • Then the other end of the cutting blade with another hole made.
  • Also, you need to place a washer on the cutting blade and pass the screw until it screws into the wood.

With this you are going to cut the plastic strips.

How to cut.

  • To begin with, you need to cut the bottles in half.
  • Then, grabbing the bottles by the spout, insert them on the side of the tool that has 3 washers.
  • The next step is to start spinning the bottle while pulling on the plastic string you get from it.
  • Finally, you must do the same procedure with each of the bottles.

How to arm.

  • Start by taking the ruler and mark every 3 cm.
  • Then place the plastic on the edge of the ruler.
  • Then hold the edge with pliers.
  • The next step is to cross the plastic in Zigzag, passing it from one brand to another.
  • After reaching the end of the ruler, start to burn with a lighter, without melting the plastic.
  • Remove it from the ruler below, keeping the shape it got.
  • You should also do the same for each color of plastic.
  • Then with two tweezers, take the ends of the first color.
  • The next step is to start weaving the mesh, interweaving the colors, joining the ends of the resulting strips.
  • Finally, weave the net to the size you want.

You will get a maya in the size and color you want which is very decorative.
