1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Recycling Meets Rainbows on: April 29, 2012 06:10:08 PM
This is my first Craftster post so please bear with me  Shocked

What do you get when you mix plastic spoons, a candle, and an imagination?  You come up with plastic spoon roses!

I'm getting married next June (date is set, venue is reserved!).  The "theme" I guess you could call it, is a mix of rainbow and guitars.  I'm a huge rainbow fanatic and my fiance is a guitar knob.  My dress is hopefully going to have a streak of rainbow on it, but to go along with it is my bouquet.  I originally made flowers from ribbons and created a bouquet from those, but I didn't like the way it looked.  

Then I heard about how you can make flowers out of plastic spoons by melting them.  This knowledge plus seeing the rainbow assortment of plastic spoons when I went shopping had me thinking that was the answer!  

After a few nights of melting and glueing, I have finally completed the start to my bouquet.  It's not 100% done, but I wanted to share it because I am so excited!  I am trying to make my wedding as DIY as possible and this was a huge accomplishment in that regard.

Still learning on how to get the pictures to post, but I uploaded them to the photo sharing gallery (the link is below).
