Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees

Christmas is my favorite season and this is by far my favorite Christmas craft - Plastic Spoon Christmas trees. It takes only about 30 minutes to make and costs under $10, maybe less if you have spoons and paint left over from other projects! I bought a ton of plastic spoons from The Dollar Store and a paper mach tree cone from my local craft store. That, along with a hefty dose of hot glue, and a little spray paint, spoons have been transformed into a whimsical christmas display!

Plastic Spoon Trees are a unique and pretty way to decorate on the cheap for the holidays!

First, I cut off the heads of about 100 plastic spoons.

Then, I spray painted the backs and fronts with brown, black, and gold for texture.

Finally, I hot glued them onto a paper mache tree form, starting at the bottom and working my way upward.

    very nice! can acrylic paints be used on these spoons?

      @Lois R I would think so since the tree doesn't get a lot of wear. let me know how it goes! :)

    did you have to use the "fusion" paint for plastics in order for the paint to stick good? I have a green styrofaom cone to cover.

      @1vba any spray paint seems to work well since the tree doesn't get a lot of wear and tear. I would be careful using a styrofoam cone...not sure how hot glue does with foam... happy crafting!
