Holiday project from my mom's crafts file.

Last year my mom spent the holidays with us and she made this roses from fresh artichokes. It is a very simple project and you only need fresh artichokes and your choice of spray paint.
Start by folding the leaves in toward the center, let it dry for at least 4 days and spray paint, you can use acrylic craft paint if you want to go 'green'. Good luck!!
