This is my first Craftster post so please bear with me
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 I originally made flowers from ribbons and created a bouquet from those, but I didn't like the way it looked.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).
