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
Here is a list of item you will need:
large glue sticks
acrylic paint (colors of your choice)
Here are the tools you will need:
razor blade (a box cutter is better and safer)
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.
Step 2: Remove the bottom of the bottle
Step 3: Making the pedals
Step 4: Shaping the pedals
With the sissors round off the ends to form a more pedal shape. you can also use large nail clippers to help curve the far edges. wear the protective eyeware, small pieces thed to fly everywhere. After fold the pedals slightly foward to give them more depth.
Step 6: Painting thumb tacks
The thumb tacks will be the center of the flowers. stick them to a cardboard and paint there yellow or colors of your choice. paint as many coats as your please.
Step 7: Make a hole in the flower
Use the vise grips to hold the safety pin. Heat up the safety pin with the lighter and burn a hole through center of the flower.
