Supplies:

  • plastic spoons and forks, green for stems
  • wood burning tool
  • small candle and matches
  • florist tape to wrap around wire
  • thick wire for stem

Steps:

Be sure to keep a window open, the smell can be very strong.

  1. These flowers are made from plastic spoons and forks, melted over a small candle. Use green spoons for the leaves.
  2. 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 packed up all of my deceased coworker's things. I had to clean up her table. I found 9 disposable spoons. It seems like they had been there for a long time so I thought of creating something out of them so that they wouldn't just sit there for a long time without any use.

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?

Hello!
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!
