- Plastic laundry bottle with handle
- Craft or Heavy Duty Kitchen Scissors
- Items to decorate the scoop - I used a picture, wrapping paper, craft glue, 2 paint chip cards, fabric paint and packing tape
Start with a plastic bottle with a handle.
Remove the plastic insert.
Cut around the bottle to make the opening. I went with the curves that were already on the bottle and it made it easier to cut.
Use the scissors to trim off any rough edges and decorate however you would like. For the front, I used a photo that didn't turn out well and 2 cut up paint chip cards (red and orange) to cover the writing on the bottle and glued it to the bottle with craft glue, then taped it over with packing tape to protect it.
For the back, I used a piece of wrapping paper and cut it in the general shape of the bottle, trimmed it to fit then glued it down with craft glue. I then used fabric paints to write "Maxx's Food Scoop" and went around the edges with the paint to help seal off the edges.
