Chrysanthemum Mirror Made With Plastic Spoons

shims 05.13.15
This is one of my favorite projects that I've ever done because it proves a simple fact: Pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive (and in fact, it can be pretty cheap). I made this chrysanthemum mirror using the cheapest plastic spoons I could find at my local grocery store. I glued them to inexpensive MDF wreath forms and then painted them with craft paint. Minimal cost with big impact. My kind of decorating! :-D

    I usually dislike plastic because I like rustic type things, but this is beautiful. No one would ever guess that it was made of plastic spoons. I definitely will make one for Spring!

    I love your ideas and this one looks so rich looking. Will have to try this later on. I used to make flowers out of plastic spoons and light them up with a battery operated flame.
