Lately I have seen several crafts that at first I am not sure what they are made of. And with closer inspection I realize they are out of plastic spoons. These mirrors have got to be the best thing I have seen using plastic spoons. Over at Little Things Bring Smiles, Katie gives you a step by step instructions on how to do this craft. I am getting ready to redo my girls’ empty bedrooms and you can bet one of them will have a plastic spoon mirror hanging it in. You can also count on the fact that I will post the results here so that you can see my finished project. I love how three dimensional they are and a bit art deco. I love, love, love them.
Here is another craft with plastic spoons that took me a minute to figure out. Seriously, I have got to try this one, you never know when you will need a plastic flower. It just looks so fun, I cannot tell you how many times I have been sitting around a wedding reception or other party were there are plastic cutlery and candles when someone does not start to melt the “silverware”. Now I can actually create something cute. You can get a full tutorial over at Krafty Kat.
Here is one more that I think looks great and also took a second to figure out what it was made of. It looks like a Laurel wreath, pretty cool, huh. The Nesting Place also has great instructions so that you can make one too. So here's to plastic spoons and all of the creative things you can use them for other than eating.
