Plastic Spoon Tree

Here's a fun and easy way to make a chic looking tree for the holidays, or any time of the year. I think they look lovely both indoors and outdoors. All you need are plastic spoons, a piece of paper, and hot glue. The bigger the paper, the taller the tree. I used a huge paper insert from a package and about 75 spoons to make a pretty tall tree. Have fun!

*Keep the handles of the spoons after you cut them. Use them for stirring or future crafts. :)

Total Time: 70 minutes

Yield: 1 tree



  1. Cut the handles off the spoons using wire cutters.
  2. Make a large cone by rolling your piece of paper into itself diagonally.
  3. Tape the seams of the paper cone shut.
  4. Fold the base of the cone inwards into itself to keep it even when it's standing up.
  5. Add hot glue to the most protruding part of the back of a spoon.
  6. Starting from the base of the cone, start gluing the spoons to it, going all the way around.
  7. Work your way up the cone by alternating the spoon placement so they overlap nicely.
  8. I like to flip the very top spoon up the other way around to give it a nice point.
