Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees

759K Views
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!

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.

    Got the silver spoons from Dollar Tree. They were located in the wedding section and come 24 spoons in the pack.

      I looked at the Dollar Tree and the only silver spoons they had where tiny ones. I will look again.
