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. Really! These are fun and amazing. No one will guess what this is made of. 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.

Materials: * Five #6 recyclable plastic cups * Heat source (like a well ventilated oven) * Chain or wire to use as necklace base and links * Pliers Cost: Free for me (I already had cups leftover from a party and an old junk necklace, but I imagine this could be assembled for less than $10) Time: 60 minutes for the blue statement necklace, 20 minutes for the pink pendant 1.
