They say that flowers are the way to a girl's heart, but why waste your money at the local florist when you can make your own? If you have a maple tree in the area, you can create a fanciful faux rose from maple leaves. If not, you can turn to the kitchen and make your loved one a bouquet of roses using heavy-duty plastic spoons.
Using candles, garden clippers, and other simple materials, you can melt plastic spoons by the heat of a candle flame to warp the bowl part of the spoon into delicate-looking rose petals.
Melt all the rose petals together to create a rose that will never wilt, or add a little extra accessories to turn your plastic rose into a necklace, brooch, or decorative wreath.
This would make the perfect DIY gift for Mother's Day, which is less than three weeks away!
