How to Make a Wire from a Plastic Bottle - http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Wire-from-a-Plastic-Bottle A wire can easily be made with an empty plastic soda bottle. This wire can be used to make stems for fake flowers, as well as bracelets and other jewelry. 1. Cut a soda bottle into a spiral. The width of the strip in the picture is about 4 mm. 2. Sit and hold a hair dryer (or a heat gun) between both knees. Heat the plastic strip and wind it around while pulling it with both hands. (Polyethylene terephthalate [PETE] plastic becomes soft by 70 ℃.) 3.Remove the strip from the hot air occasionally to allow it to cool down and fix the shape. 4.Continue until as much of the plastic strip as you want has been twisted. Tips Experimented example Heat gun: Setting "300℃/280L" is gauged with a digital thermometer. The temperature of the hot wind: (From vent) On the 15cm > 100℃ and 20cm > 80℃. Hair dryer: suitable temperature is in the vent nearest. Experiment with twisting your wire. A tight twist looks completely different than a loose twist. Pulling on the wire ensures that it is straight. Control the width of the wire by the thickness of the original PETE strip.
