Picture of water bottle flower bouquet

this instructable will teach you how to make a flower bouquet. It can be for a special someone, a friend, or just plain hobby. This was an idea I came up with for a gift for valentines day.

Step 1: What you will need

Picture of what you will need
You will want to choose a vase of your choice and any decorations you want to add like color rocks, marbles or fake butterflies like I did.

Here is a list of item you will need:

water bottles
large glue sticks
thumb tacks
acrylic paint (colors of your choice)
paint brush

Here are the tools you will need:
sissors
safey pin
lighter
razor blade (a box cutter is better and safer)
vise grips
gloves
goggles or any form of safety glasses

*how ever many flowers you plan to make,  it will be good to have extra items due to trial and error. you will want equal quantites of glue sticks water bottles and thumbtacks.

what types of paint did you use? When I used acrylic paint - after it dried the paint cracked and flaked off. >.<

Other than that - thank you for the idea tho! Once I figure out a paint that works I'm sure it will be just as lovely as yours!
I use fabric paint...it works well for me... you can also use enamel paint.
