Chrysanthemum Plastic Spoon Mirror
The first project that we are sharing with you is this gorgeous Plastic Spoon Mirror from Suzy’s Sitcom. This is a truly stunning piece and the spoons create a wonderful texture.
We love the ombre colors that Suzy has used and you can decorate them in any number of ways. This would also work really well for photos and also a clock surround.
Plastic Spoon Artichoke Sculpture
Lucy from Craftberrybush had this idea months before she made it. A creative sculpture of an artichoke using the tops of plastic spoons, this is actually a pretty simple DIY that she outlines in the post.
You can spray-paint your spoons or leave them white. Lucy suggests using it as a simple centerpiece, even adding an LED candlelight in the middle, or putting some flowers inside.
Melted Plastic Spoon Roses Craft
These gorgeous Plastic Spoon Roses can be used for any number of things. The creator has upcycled them into a bracelet and also for hairclips.
They could be rings and necklaces too. They have a wonderful wilted look that is achieved through melting.
Plastic Spoon Dolls
These plastic spoon dolls are just adorable! You can even use plastic forks for this project.
You can wrap the tops of the spoons in yarn or twine, add some small embellishments, then decorate the bottom with a fabric scrap “dress”. Faces can be drawn on and you can even add a bowtie.
Plastic Spoon Candle Holders
This beautiful tea light candle holder comes from blog PetiteCandela and looks so pretty with a little tealight candle inside! It’s easy to make using a candle holder and gluing on the plastic spoon tops one at a time.
You can choose to spray paint the spoons as they did or leave them plain white. Either way, they look beautiful, especially when lit up.
Melted Plastic Flower Spoons Craft
Shannon Berry came up with these gorgeous blooms made from melting the tops of plastic spoons.
She used a candle to melt them, much like the other tutorials on this page. She, however, did say that if they spoons turn a little black it’s alright, her spoons did too and paint covers it all up. You can see how she did it all on her blog.
Plastic Spoon Flower Garland
Club Chica Circle made this lovely flower garland, using plastic spoons for the petals. In this tutorial, she also gives a great method for easily cutting the spoon handles off by heating up a regular knife.
The wooden triangle panels are painted bright to match the flowers, but of course, they can be any color you’d like. This would be a lovely decoration for a party, especially in the spring!

Plastic Spoon Rose Pendant
This rose was made using – you guessed it! – plastic spoons and one magic tool, a candle! EVEnl on Cut Out + Keep came up with this beautiful way to make a statement necklace or brooch. You’ll use 17 spoons in total, melting them slowly over the candle.
You’ll then shape them by hand by twisting and pulling them into the desired shape. You’ll then assemble the petals and get rid of most of the handle on each spoon.
Plastic Spoon Peacock
We love the idea of using all of these different types of plastic spoons – regular and those tiny cocktail ones – to make a peacock.
It would make a beautiful wall hanging in the kitchen and could even be a great craft to do with the kids.
Plastic Spoon Garden Artichoke Sculpture
This video from Curious shows you how to put together this lovely plastic spoon artichoke decoration.
We think it would look beautiful surrounding a garden, placed on a deck or even in between pots. It could make a nice addition to a fairy garden too. It’s also very easy to make.
Plastic Spoon Flower Mirrors
Wouldn’t you love to walk into your home and see one of these gorgeous mirrors hanging on your wall? They can be made in any color you’d like and are surprisingly budget-wise to put together.
Kristi from Addicted2decorating came up with the idea for this craft, which uses the tops of the spoon to make the decor around the mirror, and the bottom handles of the spoons to hold two wreath forms together.
Plastic Spoon Water Lily
Making a gorgeous Water Lily from plastic spoons is actually quite simple and a lot of fun.
In the photos above, an old plastic egg carton is used to make the center of the flower. You can find a similar video on Youtube from Crafty Cheli.
Hanging Succulent Garden
This beautiful wall hanging looks like a garden of succulents. Those “plants” are made from actually made from pistachio shells.
You could make something similar using plastic spoons by simply improvising. Let your creative juices run wild.
Plastic Spoon Ladybugs Craft
We just love these little ladybugs from this blog. These ladybugs could even be used as an extra decoration for one of your flower projects.
They would also make really nice garden decorations. You can watch a similar tutorial on Youtube by RecycledBottleCrafts.
Plastic Spoon Flower Vase
AllYou shows you how to turn a regular vase into this gorgeous stunner using only plastic spoons and a glue gun.
You can paint the spoons any color you’d like, and really have a lot of fun with different shaped vases, jars or even cups.
Tealight Fabric Flower Candle Holder
This lovely candle holder idea from glue Dots uses a fabric flower along with plastic spoon tops to make a lovely project!
The plastic spoons keep the fabric safe and allow you to structure the flower however you’d like.

The flower in the bracelet above was made by the PM Between The Lines blogger using leather.
You could use any of the flower tutorials above to make a really nice similar project with plastic spoons. The possibilities are really endless with these projects.
