Once the ball is fixed on top of the bottle, you will get something as shown in the picture. Now the body and head of the doll is joined together and is ready.

Making a doll: step 6: Now paint the bottle first with a coat of white paint and once the white paint dries, paint it in colourful colours. You can even draw two arms and legs as shown in the picture. Let it dry completely. Do not touch the doll until the paint dries completely.
