Spoon Mirror TUTORIAL

Happy Monday, Crafters! Hope you had a nice weekend. I’ve been working on decorating my breakfast nook {yes, we’ve lived here for over a year and i still have TONS of bare walls!} I made this totally awesome Spoon Mirror for the little corner in  my kitchen and I am kind of in love with it!

The color, the texture, and the price is right….it cost me only a couple dollars to make! Love a cheap, easy craft! And most likely you have most of the supplies on hand to make this fun version of the starburst mirror!

When I told Davis I was making this spoon flower, he thought I was crazy. Men just have no vision when it comes to crafts! haha. So it was really fun showing him the final product. He really likes it. Which is saying a lot for a man who sees many crafts…..

How to Make a Spoon Wreath

how to make a spoon mirror

Supplies: cardboard, hot glue gun, 3″ round mirror, spray paint, scissor, 78-80 clear plastic spoons, small piece of ribbon

Skill Level: Beginner

Instructions:

  1. Cut a 12″ circle from a cardboard box. diy spoon mirror
  2. Lay the 3″ circle mirror in the center of the cardboard circle and trace around it. Then remove mirror. sunburst mirror
  3. Use your scissors to score the plastic spoons at the base of the handle, then use your fingers to snap off. Don’t worry if the break isn’t straight or even. Just be careful not to break the concave portion when snapping off the handles. how to make a sunburst mirror
  4. Starting on the outside edge of the cardboard circle, hot glue the spoons around the perimeter so that the spoon over hangs slightly past the edge of the cardboard. Continue hot gluing the spoons on until you reach the inside circle. You’ll want the spoons to slightly overlap the circle you drew in the center.
  5. Spray paint the spoons making sure to cover any cardboard you may see peeking through the spoons. I did 2 coats of spray paint and got great coverage. *Tip: I used clear plastic spoons so that I wouldn’t have to worry aboutpainting the backs of the spoons.
  6. Once the paint has dried, hot glue the small mirror in the center of the spoon wreath. ribbon hanger
  7. Cut about a 4″ piece of ribbon, shape into a loop and hot glue to the back of the cardboard to use to hang it on the wall. *Tip: the spoon mirror is not heavy, so this works just fine to hold it on the wall.

Seriously, such a fun craft! This is a great craft idea for Super Saturday or crafting groups because it is easy, low coast, and you can easily chat and have a blast making them! Oh, and they look fabulous when you’re done! :)
If you save and reuse your plastic spoons, this is a great way to retire some of the old ones!

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    Wow that look amazing, like something you would find in the high end store. You really have to look at it to realize that its made of spoons. Definitely going to give this a try to make a nice accent for my new home, and you can’t beat the cost.
