Yippee, I do believe I have come up with a fun way to make recycled plastic bottle flowers that look artfully elegant! Just in time for spring, though of course these flowers will last practically forever, and are great to have on hand for a last minute centerpiece. Plus your recycled plastic flower bouquet will be the talk of the town, and then you'll end up teaching all of your friends to make them too, so do keep that in mind! Truthfully, no one actually asked me to teach them how to make them, they just asked to take some home! Oh and the kindergarten teacher borrowed a bouquet to teach her students about recycling, which made me very happy!
So gather together your supplies and follow the tutorials which I've linked to below. For each bouquet you'll need at least two paper flowers and six to eight (or more for a huge bouquet) plastic bottle flowers in a variety of sizes.
For the recycled plastic bottle flowers: follow my tutorial here.
For the paper flowers: follow my tutorial here, just make a five petaled flower using the smallest petal only. Make pom poms from pink yarn, ours is variegated, and attach with hot glue.
Enjoy and let me know how it goes!
