Singed Flowers DIY
I love the idea of these singed flowers, especially the deep pinky red ones that go black and crinkly around the edges. I think they look so romantic, and would make great trim for a historically inspired gown or headpiece. I have yet to try it, and honestly, clumsy people like me shouldn't be allowed around flames anyway. Here are a couple of YouTube videos. There are also a large selection of DIY posts all over the aethernet on how to do it, so you can take your pick. Singed flowers seems a common term for them.
