Plastic Spoon Laurel Wreath

Last week I saw a photo over at Casa Sugar and I couldn’t get the idea out of my head.  I love projects where you don’t have to think or spend much money.  Hot glue, 50ish spoons and 15 minutes.

I made one out of blue and green spoons too.  I like the white one better and I think the white wreath only cost $3.  This blue and green one was eight dollars.  If you look closely in the inspiration photo you can see they used different shades of the same color~that’s probably the best option but I was impatient and my Target only had 3 packages of blue and I had a feeling that wouldn’t be enough.  The next closest color was green.

A fun little mindless project that you can throw away/recycle if you hate it and not feel guilty.  Or if you want, at your next picnic save everyone’s spoons wash ’em up and reuse them–see safe from the landfill.

Just put your hot glue on the same two spots on each spoon-the back of the bowl and then the end of the handle, you can adjust it depending on your spoons.  I used 40-50 spoons for each wreath.

Happy Spooning!

  1. Jennifer, I tried it too and mine won’t stay glued either!!! What the heck?

    I do love it though. I certainly don’t take a plastic spoon wreath personally in the slightest. =)

  2. btw, i don’t think there is such a thing as too cluttered on a gallery wall. =) I love it.

  3. I saw this written about on another blog and had to come here and see. The wreaths are beautiful in their simplicity! I love the white one.

  4. Ridiculously cute! Seriously. Sorry for the other comments about plastic! LOVE IT.

  5. Hey just a thought try sanding the spoons where you are going to glue them. Making sure you wipe all the dust off. It will ruff it up a little and should hold better.
    I love the picture you but the wreath over its perfict!

  6. that is such a great/cheap idea!! I would have never known they were made from spoons if you hadn’t said. I’m definitely going to make one!

  7. This a great idea. It is very inexpensive and it doesn’t seem to hard to tackle. I like how you put a canvas behind it and turned it into a piece of art. That’s awesome! Great idea.

  8. cute! I had no idea they were spoons!

  9. It looks like a giant one of those things from the top of a plastic bottle. You know, the part that stays on after you take the cap off.
    Also, I’m getting pretty tired of random words on the wall.

  10. I’ve done several of these & they are always a hit. At christmas I did one with red spoons and wrapped tiny, tiny white lights around it; added a fun bow and tada!
    For the summer I’ve done one in rainbow colors and hung it on my patio.

  11. I made this tonight and had no problems. It turned out so cute..and it is dirt cheap!! Thanks for sharing!

    Yeah I totally agree about roughing up the back of the spoons to make them stick. Remember when you were in art class and when you played with clay, you had to rough up and mark both pieces of clay before you stuck them together? It’s like the grooves attach onto the other grooves. It’s what you call “scoring” and if you score the spoons before you glue them together, it’ll be much sturdier!

    I made one out of purple spoons – wish I had looked at the inspiration photo first; I like it better. I like my purple one and have ideas running thru my head on adding to it!

  14. Hi! I am teaching a kid’s cooking class (6-9 year olds) and thought laurel wreaths would be a neat craft for Greek day! Do you think if get some gold spoons, I could get the wreath small enough for them to wear on their heads?

  35. The right attitude can make the difference between failure and success. Stop thinking of yourself as someone who is learning English, and start thinking of yourself as someone who speaks English. It’s a small change, but it will make you feel more confident and help you to use the English you already know more
