You Can Make A Beautiful Piece Of Decor With Just Plastic Spoons And Cardboard

Your gorgeous face doesn't have to be the only beautiful thing about looking at your mirror.

This super-cute and easy project uses cheap spoons to transform some cardboard and a mirror into a blooming chrysanthemum design. Seriously, the cheaper the spoons are, the better they are for this craft. Fancy, heavy-duty cutlery will only weigh the decor down. Depending on the size of your mirror, one box should be plenty!

Start by popping off the handles with some scissors.

Then take two medium-density fibreboards (MDFs) and connect them using some of the handles and glue.

The crafter behind this design used 18-inch and 12-inch wreath forms from Michael's.

Flip that over and cover the gap with thick paper, like card stock, using a hot glue gun.

Then start gluing on your spoons.

She used the holes in the MDF as a guide for spacing the layers out.

Keep layering until the whole thing is covered.

For the spoons on the innermost circle, she sanded down the edges to make them look nicer.

Spray with primer and your choice of base color.

And add details as you'd like.

She went with a blue gradient.

Once it's dry, use hot glue to insert your mirror and you're all set!
