How to Make Cutlery Flowers Using Spoons

3 Materials
2 Hours

Have you ever found something that you put away years ago and had forgotten you even had? Well that's what happened with the spoons that I used to make these cutlery flowers. I made some flower plates last summer and I thought it would be fun to make smaller versions for small gardens and planters. Can you guess what I used for the centers of the flowers? Pop on over to my blog to see the complete tutorial to find out.

My cutlery flowers planted in the garden
I used small thrifted spoons
I bent the spoons and glued them onto a washer, and then glued in my centers.
Here are two of the flowers with their stems attached.

Suggested materials:

      @Angie Hacker Thanks Angie. These spoon flowers were really a fun project, and they look great in any planter as plant pokes.
