I saw the neatest thing at my show this past weekend.

Cut the top off a 2-liter bottle. Using the TOP, cut across the screw top, slicing through the threads only. Now paint the INSIDE of the bottle to look like fish, with the now cut threads serving as the puckered mouth. These were very generous adaptations of painted fish.

Once dry, cut out "fins". These were just slices cut into the sides and slightly bent so they would protrude. (Like a "v"). Staple the Open end closed and you've got a fish. The folks making this were making mobiles or yard art from them.
