Tutorial: Garden Sunflower From Plastic Spoons

2 Hours
I used 100 plastic spoons to make a sunflower for my backyard. I dug around in my closet and found a plastic tray that once was used at an office party. I brought home the lid to the coffee can from work to use as the center. I rummaged through my son's bag of pipe cleaners and dug out all the black ones and a couple of the yellow ones.
100 plastic spoons and some spray paint! Cut the handles off y our spoons before you start hot gluing.
