Plastic Spoon Artichoke Sculpture
Lucy from Craftberrybush had this idea months before she actually 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 choose to spray paint your spoons or leave them white – either way, it looks incredible! Lucy suggests using it as a simple centerpiece, even adding an LED candlelight in the middle, or putting some flowers inside. You’ll need a bunch of plastic spoons, optional spray paint, and a hot glue gun,
Found out how to DIY on Craftberrybush.
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.
Get the full tutorial on Cut Out + Keep.
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.
See the photo tutorial at Crazzy Craft.
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!
See how they put it together at PetiteCandela.
Plastic Spoon Garden Artichoke Sculpture
This video from Curious shows you how to put together this lovely garden decoration. We think it would look beautiful surrounding a garden, placed on a deck or even in between pots. It could even make a nice addition to a fairy garden.
To see the tutorial, head over to Curious.
Platic Spoon Dolls
Aren’t these plastic spoon dolls made by Inspire Co. just adorable? We love the idea of using them as kids room decor or even hanging them up in the kitchen. You can wrap the tops of the spoons in yarn or twine, add some small decorations, then decorate the bottom with a fabric scrap “dress”. Faces can be drawn on and the added bowtie is a nice touch!
See her post about this craft on Inspire Co.
Plastic Spoon Chrysanthemum 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. It’s a genius way to use up old spoons and with all the customization options, one of these could be so fun to make!

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 tutorial on Youtube from Crafty Cheli.

Hanging Succulent Garden
This idea from Addicted2decorating is a beautiful wall hanging that looks like a lovely garden of succulents. But actually, those “plants” are made from pistachio shells! You could make the same thing using plastic spoons, however, using some of the tutorials we’ve included above to make a similar looking wall hanging.
See the tutorial from Addicted2decorating.
Upcycled Flower Bouquet
These lovely blooms are actually made out of a ton of recycled bits! Teresa Wong from TheStar made these using plastic spoons for the flower petals, chopsticks for the stems and even strips of soda bottle plastic to make the leaves.
You can see the full tutorial at TheStar.
Plastic Spoon Flower Bunting
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!
See the full tutorial here.
This lovely frame used to be sold by Joss & Main but could actually easily be replicated using plastic spoons over a photo frame. You could even melt the spoons and shape them ahead of time using the methods we’ve outlined on this page in several tutorials.
Melted Plastic Flowers
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.
See this tutorial at Shannon Berry Designs.
