Plastic Spoon Wreath Mirror!!
I’m the person who walks into a store and enjoys the hunt for an item rather than ask an employee where I can find it. Reason why I tell you this, is because when it comes to projects I’m the same way. I’d rather be stuck on the same step over and over again before I actually look up directions. Lucky for you guys, now I’m able to show both the DO’s and the DONT’s to make your plastic spoon wreath a masterpiece of your own!
What you’ll need:
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks
1 large Cardboard box
1 medium Cardboard box
3 mirrors; 2) 10′ mirrors 1) 12′ mirror
Spray Paint (Color of your choice)
Alright, after we get our materials all set it’s time to get started!!!
Step 1: Cut the “Heads” or circle part off of the spoons.
This will take some time, but be patient and try to cut as accurate as possible.
Step 2: Start Sanding the edges of the spoon that you just cut!
Step 3: Prepare your wreaths on cardboard box. This is where your compass comes in handy.
2) small circles: 12in
1) large circle: 22in
Step 4: Cut out all three wreaths!
Step 5: Start glueing your spoons to the wreaths. Start on the outside and work inwards.
Step 6: You will want to peel off any/all of that springy hair-like glue strands. Take your time doing this step. The more strings left on those spoons, the worse the spray paint is going to look.
Step 7: Get your mirrors ready! Add hot glue to the back of the mirrors. Then Softly, and carefully place them in the center of the wreaths!
Step 8: Allow some more drying time for both the paint and the glue! You want to make sure it’s completely locked in there! After that, I just added a few Command Strips to the back of each wreath and stuck it to the wall!
And Taaaadahh! You did it!
I hope you guys are as happy as I am with the final product! Feel free to ask any questions!! Good luck my peeps!!!!
