I made a spoon flower mirror and have over two hundred plastic handles. I'm a crafter and don't want to throw these away. Any ideas?

    My immediate thought would be to use them for a fence in a fairy garden! My other thought was plant markers, although they may be too small for that idea.

    Make another smaller mirror with the handles. Like a starburst type on maybe a round mirror tile. Maybe 2 or 3 as a set paint the handles fun colors, or metallic maybe!

    How about making a large flower for an outdoor garden decoration.

    Take a small round mirror and glue the handles to the back like a starburst. I also saw a chandelier on Pinterest where they used clear handles.

    Make a sunflower. Spray paint a tin can lid brown & glue it to the center of a plastic plate or board or ? Then glue all the handles around the lid. Mask off the lid & spray the handles yellow. Then you can glue small black beads around the tin can lid. I haven't done it yet, but it's next on my list.

    I certainly will when I get to it. Got too many irons in the fire right now. But I will definitely take a pic. Thanks for your help.
