Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees

2 Materials
$5
1 Hour
Easy


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.

    Could you glue them to a styro foam tree?

      I believe you can. However, the hot glue needs to be applied to the spoon not the foam tree directly and then attach it to the tree. The glue is a bit cooler on the foam if you do it this way.

    Wouldn't it be easier to paint them before cutting them. ?

    Where do you get the paper mache tree?

    Jackie, each Dollar Tree carries differing inventory. What one store carries, their 'sister stores' may not. You might want to scope out several stores - you may just find the normal sized silver spoons. Happy hunting!
