This is an effect I created for Queensland Ballets production of sleeping beauty. In the scene when sleeping beauty awakes after 100 years, the prince lifts up a vase of dead flowers and they magically come back to life.

This instructable details how I did this.

The tools I used were a leatherman, a jigsaw and a drill, (and a ruler and marker), and a hot glue gun.

You will need....
-Black wrap (black foil)
-Black Tack (black foil tape)
-25mm PVC pipe - about a meter
-silk flowers - 6 of
-plastic vase/urn thingy.
-1mm garden wire
-6 sprinkler head tubes (or other thin rigid but bendy tube)
-Polystyrene sheet
-spray paint in brown, black and dark green.

Step 1: What we want to make...

the dead flowers go bloom into live ones... see pictures
aye, it's blurry alright...can't see how it's attached.<br><br>should have taken a better picture of it..
Video plieeeeeesssss(a)
Video?<br /> <br /> L<br />
Very clever, well done!<br />
