Light the candle

Pick up one of the spoon tops with the needle nose pliers and hold them over the flame, melting the bowl of the spoon. Be sure to not hold the spoon too close to the fire to prevent blackening of the spoon.

Let the spoon cool a little. While its still warm, bend the spoon to make a petal by pulling the tip and bending it backwards.

Repeat for all the other spoons.

Assembly of the rose:

Take two spoons and melt the remaining handles. Fuse them next to eachother and smooth out the melted plastic until the handles stick together.(Really hot. Use the needle nose pliers.)

Repeat this four times so there are five sets of two petals.
Melt the handles of two sets and stick them together.
Repeat three times
Glue the pieces together with a glue gun.

Insert the five petals into the ten remaining petals and the two middle petals into the five.

Melt the bottom so it is flat.
