Recycled Plastic Flowers Supplies Needed

Make Your Flowers

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ºF.
  2. Color your plates, cups & bowls with Sharpie marker. I found that it helps to color them as completely as possible, especially in the very center because that’s where the glue to hold the stem goes. The glue shows if you don’t color that part.
  3. Cut slits in the sides of each using scissors. Careful as sometimes plastic pieces go flying.
  4. Place plastic pieces on foil covered baking sheet and bake for 2-5 minutes. Be sure to watch your pieces in the oven, both because it’s cool to see them melt and curl up, but also to make sure you don’t leave them in too long. Also, it’s a good idea to put the fan on or open a window for ventilation because melting plastic can get a little smelly.
