DIY Easy Moana Raft

Hi guys this post is for all my youtube subscribers who have asked me how I made the Moana raft.

Its actually very easy, as you can see in the image below, underneath is one layer of empty plastic bottles.   I used around 5-6 rolls of duct tape.

First peel off the labels from the bottles so that the tape will stick better then I bundled up more or less 23 pieces of 1.5 liters plastic bottles (water and coke bottles ).

The middle layer consist of a styrofoam board that’s 2 inches high for more buoyancy.   Actually Bug can already float with just the water bottle layer but she still gets a little wet so I added the styrofoam board and it works perfectly.   I duct taped it on the plastic bottle layer.   Then to stick the styrofoam to the thin piece of wood I used the flexible adhesive below because its waterproof once its dry which by the way takes 24 hours but once its dried its hard like cement.

Lastly get a yard of cream colored fabric, cut it to the right shape as best as you can…sorry I don’t have a template because i just eyeballed it using the image above as reference.

Next draw the Moana symbol using red permanent marker.  Finally, use hot glue to stick it on the mop stick.  Tadaaaa your done!
