I bet you are thinking that I lost my mind!  You read that title correctly, today I am sharing Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees with you today!  If you are new here, WELCOME!  If you have been here for a while you might remember that I created a Chrysanthemum Clock using plastic spoons this summer!  I’m kind of addicted to trying to find fun things to do with ordinary household items!

Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees! Can be painted to match any decor!

25 Days of Christmas Banner Day 9

Supplies Needed:

  • Plastic spoons (about 100  or so)
  • Paper Mache Cone forms
  • Hot glue/glue gun
  • scissors
  • spray paint

Start out by snipping the spoons from the handles.  Next start from the bottom of the tree and begin hot gluing them around the base.  Add your second layer being sure to place the second layer spoons in between the first row so they slightly overlap.  Continue all the way to the top.

Next take them outside and give them some good coats of spray paint.  be sure to spray from the top down and then flip them over and spray bottom up so that you get the spoons covered well.

I might have seriously lost my mind because I have a few more projects (not holiday ones) that I’d love to try using plastic spoons!  Promise you will all stick by me during my time of insanity *wink*
I think these guys will join my Glitter Trees that I made last year, on my mantle! 
Don’t forget that I will have a Holiday Happenings link party open until the 5th of January. Please link up all posts related to the Holidays {Christmas, Hanukah, New Year’s, etc.}
