Spring Onion Flowers

Spring onion flowers are made out of the spring onion bulbs. These look pretty and bloom faster that the carnations.

To make the spring onion flowers remove the greens in such a way that you can comfortably hold the spring onion bulb remove the root too well else your flower will not open well. Take a look at this one.

With a very sharp knife cut the onion from the root towards the green.  Then once again cut perpendicular to this cut. Repeat till you cover the whole onion. Now drop it in ice cold water. I wanted to colour these a lovely yellow and pink but since the colours were used up in oil and water project headed by Akanksha I had to keep them   plain white. These need about 3 hours in the fridge.

Attach them to skewers and use them with the carnations for your table decoration.
