From completely affordable materials, you can make LED flowers
We will need:

1) Plastic (mostly green) two liter bottles of lemonade

2) Copper varnished wire with a diameter of about 0.7 mm (can be replaced with twisted pair wires, but the effect is much worse)

3) 5 mm LEDs are transparent, green

4) Second glue

5) Soldering iron

We cut leaves from the bottle and draw veins on them with a hot soldering iron

glue the LED to the sheet with second glue

twist the wire like this

solder the LED to the wire to get such a module

From the modules you can collect flowers of any complexity, twisting them together to obtain the effect of a branch trunk. It is better to connect the modules in 3 in series and set the resistor to 200 Ohms when connected to a 12 volt power supply. The flower bud itself is made in a similar way, in order to get the effect of rose petals, you need to hold for several seconds the petals cut from a plastic bottle above the candle so that they melt a little around the edges.
