Make A Rose From Plastic Spoons & A Candle

Make A Rose From Plastic Spoons & A Candle
Here's a new one! When is a rose not a rose? When it is picnic spoons. Materials: heavy duty plastic spoons pin back (optional) Goop glue (optional) Tools: candle ceramic tile (optional) garden clippers pliers Hold a plastic spoon about an inch above a lighted candle; bowl facing down. Place them together and melt the handles just under the buds. When the handles melt, pull them off of the rose bud and push the bud onto a ceramic tile to flatten the melted area. Melt the rest of the spoons but this time heat the underside of the bowls. Snip off the handles with garden clippers. Hold the tip of the petal with the pliers and heat the place on the spoon where the handle was until it begins to melt. Here you have a glossy, porcelain-looking rose. These spoons came from Wal-Mart (next to the paper towels). Hot glue silk rose petals to the base of the rose if you wish. There is a slight stinky melted plastic smell so you may want to open a window. Related:  Plastic Bottle Crafts

Bracelets From Plastic Water Bottles Featured by Craftgawker on 8/16/12 (link). This one was quite a learning curve. I’ve seen a fair amount of water bottle / soda bottle bracelets and figured it couldn’t be too hard. This is what not to do: 1) use Mod Podge, 2) try using heat to seal it, unless you’re better with an extinquisher than me; 3) use paint on any item that’s likely to spring back towards you when you let it go, unless you want paint all over you; 4) work in an area heavily contaminated with animal fur; 5) wait till after you’ve made the bracelet to think about closures. Having put all that to one side this is what did work: Plastic bottles are surprisingly resistant to being cut, due mostly to their ability to squirt out of your hand while trying to grip them. You want two of these of the same size. Then you get a bit of duct tape: I recommend the newly available sheets rather than the rolls. At this stage you can open the bracelet like a book. So there you have it. Let me know how it goes for you if you try it.
