I packed up all of my deceased coworker's things. I had to clean up her table. I found 9 disposable spoons. It seems like they had been there for a long time so I thought of creating something out of them so that they wouldn't just sit there for a long time without any use.

This craft can be used as an accessory or decoration.
Tip: If you don't have time to paint, use colored plastic spoons.

Supplies:

  • plastic spoons
  • scissors
  • candle and lighter
  • hot glue
  • paint (optional)

Steps:

  1. Heat the spoons one by one over the candle.
  2. Ad
  3. As it begins to melt, carefully fold or stretch each spoon forming it to look like a petal.
  4. Heat the handle and cut them away.
  5. Put two petals close together and secure by heating the bottom or simply using hot glue.
  6. Add layers of spoon petals until it forms a flower.
  7. Paint the petals. (This step can be optional. You can choose either to paint it or not.)
  8. I used a paint that dries very fast so I brushed it with white glue and sprinkled on some glitter to make it look more presentable.
  9. Slightly brush it again with glue to keep the glitter from falling off.

Even though I don't care for the glitter, I still think the flowers are beautiful. I wonder if there is a glue that dries perfectly clear, and if a few drops placed here and there would look like dew drops on the petals?

I tried making the flower using plastic spoons and a candle. When I tried, though, the spoon started melting, but dark smoke remained on the spoon as black color. How do I avoid that discoloration?

Hello!

You could try holding the plastic spoon close to the side of the flame and not on top of the flame or try boiling water or a heat gun or even a hair dryer if the plastic is soft enough. Hope this help!
