Video of the Week- Roses from Plastic Spoons

How do you create beautiful roses from melted spoons?  This video, presented by shows a simple way to create these roses.

Not willing to just throw the video out there for you to see, I felt the need to try this project so that I can give you a first hand opinion on how easy this project really is.   My thought was to create a headband or two of plastic  flowers made of plastic silverware.

So, I got together my supplies and tried it out. I used a coconut scented candle, figuring I’d make the house smell good while crafting.

The video makes this project look a lot easier than it is.  After a bit of practice, I was finally able to melt my spoons like she shows in the video, but the trick seems to be to hold it higher above the flame than you think you should.  If you go to try this project, I’d recommend having a large supply of spoons on hand for practice, and do it outside to avoid the melted plastic smell.

Results: Two slightly charred roses, two slightly charred fingers, a bunch of melty spoons and  a house that smells like plastic coconuts.  But a cool project if you can get the hang of it!
