Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees - One Project Closer

In case you missed it last year, here are all my Dollar Store Christmas Trees that you can make easy and on the cheap!

Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees

Materials Needed:

  • Paper Mache Christmas Tree form
  • Plastic Spoons
  • Spray Paint
  • Hot Glue

I started by buying bunches of spoons from Target (equally god from the Dollar Store, but cheap where ever you go), then cut the tops off. I tried just breaking them off, but lots of the split.

Once I had about 100 cut, I layed them outside on paper face down and sprayed them with a variety of different spray paints. I didn’t want it to be even so Krylon (usually crappy and uneven) worked great to give texture.

I did the back first to practice my technique and perfect the coloring. I ended up using a combination of two browns, chalkboard black, and gold.

After they were all dry, I began gluing them onto the paper mache form starting at the bottom using hot glue.

I varied the spacing on the different layers so that the spoons alternated on the layers. And I kept on working my way up to the top til it was done! Super EASY!!

And done!

Pottery Barn Knocked Me Off?!?

This year when looking at the Pottery Barn Catalog, I saw these fabulous Christmas trees. I’d like to think they knocked my Plastic Spoon Christmas Trees off, although that’s probably not true! lol.

  1. These are so amazing! Love, love, love!

    Take care,

    Trish

  2. Alli says:

    I’ve seen these done before, but I love yours the best – the color, the spacing – I would have never thought that they were made of plastic spoons. I think I may can do this.

  3. Hani Shabbir says:

    Love how they look! 🙂

  4. These are great! Such a unique idea- Well apparently not because PB thinks you are a genius too!

  5. LOVE this project – it looks so expensive and unique! =)

  6. These are super cute! Love the spoon idea.

  7. Donna Lewis says:

    Love, love, love this idea. Little bit of glitter, and I live Hawaii, so small seashells, hmmmmm, my mind is off and running ! Mahalo

    Best place to buy tree form?

  9. Stephanie says:

    Where to buy the tree form?

    • Sue says:

      Try the floral area in walmart, kmart, hobby stores they will be made of Styrofoam but you might get lucky and find the cardboard ones, otherwise, spread glue all over it and wrap with brown shopping bag…if you spray paint the Styrofoam it might melt if you’re to close…good luck and God Bless!

      • Peggy says:

        yep covering styrofoam with a brown paper bag is what I had to do, works great and bout 1/3 the cost of paper mache cone.

  10. Vicki Winn says:

    Where to buy the spoon christmas tree paper mache form?? Love these trees!

    Thank you
    Vicki

    • Lara says:

      I used styrofoam cones in different sizes from the floral department. I sprayed my cones first, then spoons and then did a touch up st the end. I topped mine with a large wooden bead and sprayed it.

  11. I say yours look much better than PBs… great knock off!

  12. Joan B. says:

    Love it! I just may give this a try! Great for kids too… except the spray paint part 😉

  13. These are gorgeous! Pinning ~ love them.

  14. Samantha says:

    LOVE these! Awesome idea!

  15. Kathryn says:

    These look so good! What a great idea!

  16. Tammie says:

    Have never seen this done. Looks great! Do you mind giving more detail about the spraying? Did you only do 3 different colors on one tree in the pic? Did the spoon melt any with the glue?
    Was looking for a contact email, but didn’t see one on your site.

  17. Bev says:

    Oh wow this is such a simple but amazing idea! Now I’m, regretting throwing away those plastic spoons after every party. This is definitely a good way to recycle them.

  24. I was so inspired by this post about making plastic spoon Christmas trees that I made one with my husband. I even featured it on my blog and told all our readers where I got the awesome idea from (http://howlinghorn.blogspot.com/2014/01/pinterest-plastic-spoon-trees.html) because every Monday, we post our experience with accomplishing a pin on our Pinterest boards. Anyways, I wanted to say that I really LOVED your idea and my husband and I both loved the results. Thanks for the inspiration!
