1. You will need plastic bottles, a knife or pair of scissors, sand in a metal pan, an awl or nail, and thin wire.

2. Using the knife or scissors, cut around the bottom part of the plastic bottles, shaping flower petals as you go.

3. Pre-heat the pan of sand in the oven. Carefully take it out and immerse the flowers in heated sand. This will soften the plastic and allow you to gently sculpt the flowers into more natural curves.
