Poppies that are always in bloom :)
After posting photos of my real poppies last friday and as normal coming home to find almost all the blooms gone, I got to thinking about the shape of a poppy and how it kind of resembled the bottom of a soda bottle. So here is what I came up with from plastic bottle and soda cans:
Hand cut each bottle and shaped them into petals. Painted with regular craft paint and sealed with mod-podge. The center of the flowers are punched, cut and painted by hand from soda cans. The stem on the red bottle is too thin so I think I am going to have to try old fence wire or a metal coat hanger for the others.
Check back this week for more plastic bottle flowers :).
