I've had this craft in the back of my mind to do for some time. I saw this post a couple of years ago and thought the rose petal tealights a cute idea. The only problem I had with it was that I thought that they were too small and making a larger one would involve buying lots of flowers to take apart and lots of plastic spoons. Lucky for me I had a huge stash of plastic spoons left over from when I made spoon flower napkin rings. Faux flowers can be very expensive, too, especially if you have to buy a lot. On a recent trip to visit friends in North Carolina, I found packages of rose petals - 100 for one dollar! Right away I knew that I could finally make the kind of luminary I wanted to. A very large one!
Here's how I made it.
Clear plastic spoons (100)
Two packs of rose petals - 200 for $2
Hot glue gun
Large glass round container
LED battery operated flameless candle
1. First, cut off the handles from the spoons.
Looks lovely inside or out!
Take a little time to enjoy
