This was commissioned as a holiday present for an orchid enthusiast.  There are eight flowers total, each slightly smaller than the previous.  We made each petal individually (Spaten, Stella, and Coke) and used a threaded rod to hold them together.  It also served as a stem (Crabbie’s).  The pot is all bottle caps (Bold Rock and Bud Light).  We cut plywood circles to fit into the top and bottom to provide support and weight.  It also gave us something to connect the threaded rod and leaves (Sierra Nevada) to.  The mulch is just caps with gold foil.  They conceal the plywood well.
