Step 1:

Remove all of the labels of the plastic bottles. Then using a cutter, cut the bottom part of the bottles. Make sure that 6 of them have equal sizes. The two remaining bottles will be used for the head of the worm. Cut the other bottle smaller than the other.

Step 2:

Using a soldering iron, make two holes on the front and two holes on the back bottom of the six bottles. If you are using a screwdriver, just heat the tip with the lighted candle and poke through the plastic. Once done, make holes at the feet of the bottles for the drain.

Step 3:

Insert one zip tie for the front and back of the 6 bottles. For the head of the bottle, get the smaller one and create 2 holes in the center. Then insert a zip tie. Next, create 2 small holes on the side for the antenna of the worm. Add glue to the inner sides and attach it to the bigger plastic bottle.

Step 4:

Wear your gloves and paint the bottles. Use the same color for two plastic bottles and a different color for the head. Let them dry.

Step 5:

Using the top part of the plastic bottles, cut 2 ovals and 1 curve-shaped for the face of the worm. Color the mouth with red paint and the eyes with white paint. Attach the black beads to the ends of the 2 wires. Once the paint has dried for both eyes, using a marker shade a circle in the center for the eyes of the worm.

Step 6:

Get the head of the worm and attach the eyes and mouth using a glue gun. Stick them to the part without the zip ties, then attach the antenna of the worm. Set aside and let it dry.

Step 7:

Using white paint and a brush, paint circles on the 6 bottles for the body of the worm.

Step 9:

Add soil to each bottle, set the plants, and water them.
