DIY Plastic Spoon Flower

I recently painted one of the bedrooms. I wanted the walls to be a medium gray, but it ended up darker than what I had anticipated. I wanted something to brighten up the room a bit. I found a few metal wall hangings that I really liked, but they were expensive. One of the hangings I found was a flower. I thought I could make something cheaper. This is what I made.

Supplies Needed:

Plastic Spoons (I used about 80)

Aluminum Foil

Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Spray Paint suitable for plastic


Step 1. Cut out two cardboard circles. My circles had a diameter of about 10 inches and about 2.5 inches.
Step 2. Break the handles off the spoons. When breaking the spoons, try not to crack the eating end of the spoon. You can throw away all the handles.
Step 3. Starting from the outside of the large cardboard circle and working inward, hot glue the spoons onto the cardboard.
Step 4. Continue to hot glue on the spoons until the cardboard is full of spoons.
Step 5. Spray paint the entire thing.
Step 6. Cut a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap the small cardboard circle and wrap it.
Step 7. Hot glue the small circle to the center of the spoons.
To hang it, I hot glued a small piece of scrap yarn to the back of the large cardboard and hung it with a small finishing nail.

I like how it turned out and it cost less than $5 to make!

    This is perfect for decorating nursing home rooms!! I have been doing something a bit different but this technique would probably be faster. Thanks for inspiring me to make more with your idea!! It’s a proven fact that nursing home residents have less depression with a more “brightly” decorated space. Merry Christmas!
