RE: anyone know how to make plastic spoon roses

I found this is one of those crafts that is better taught as 'show and tell'. Here are some written instuctions I found. I made mine similar to this. I used a candle instead of a heat gun. I used heavy wire-a coat hanger-instead of the wooden skewer for the stem. I bought the green base for the rose and rose stem leaves in bags at a local craft shop instead of the ones from a silk rose.

I don't know who to give credit for the following directions to.

"I use a heat gun to warm the edges of the spoon until they begin to curl. Then press them against the table top in a rolling motion until you form a petal. Curl the inside petal tighter than the outer ones. I use about 7 or 8 spoons to form each rose. You can use as many as you want, depending on the size of rose you wish to make. For a rose bud, just roll one tightly, or for variation add one petal. Each rose will look differently, depending on how much you curl and shape each petal. After you form all your petals, cut the handles off, leaving about 1/4 - 1/2 inch on the center petal only. I used a wooden skewer for the stem, wrapped in green foral tape. Hot glue it to the center of the center bud, holding it in place until the glue cools a little and sets up. Then form your rose a petal at a time, glueing each one in place at the base of the rose, overlapping each one just a little to look a little more natural. When all the petals are glued into place, use the green base from a silk rose, and slip it over the skewer, and glue into place to hide where you have put your rose together. I add a little silk baby's breath and green rose leaves to the stem and you're all finished. Dress it up with a pretty bow. Have fun. It takes a few to get the hang of it. And some plastics work better than others. If you have any other questions, let me know. Good luck!"

"plastic spoon roses" sound tacky, but the finished rose is really nice! Be fun to adapt for rose votive holders (battery candles, of course)
