I wanted to make a display of artificial flowers for my home.
So I cut the bottoms from some plastic water bottles and trimmed them into
a simple flower shape. Next, I carefully melted each one over a tealight to open up the flower and shape the individual petals before leaving them to cool and set. Then I painted the flower details and attached a green stick to the underneath. I turned mine into poppies to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.
