Here are some photos of plastic spoon flowers that I have made.

Be sure to keep a window open, the smell can be very strong.
These flowers are made from plastic spoons and forks, melted over a small candle. Use green spoons for the leaves. I also used a wood burning tool to melt the spoons and forks together. Add a thick craft wire stem and wrap florist tape around it. Editor's Note: Fumes from melting plastic can be very toxic. Proper ventilation and protection is essential to prevent injuries.
I tried making the flower using plastic spoons and a candle. When I tried, though, the spoon started melting, but dark smoke remained on the spoon as black color. How do I avoid that discoloration?

You could try holding the plastic spoon close to the side of the flame and not on top of the flame or try boiling water or a heat gun or even a hair dryer if the plastic is soft enough. Hope this help!
