Spending time in a camper doesn’t mean you need to leave your crafty side behind. For a lightweight, cheap, and simple to make craft, try your hand at this plastic spoon mirror. Plastic spoons and a cardboard frame unite to create a stunning flower mirror you can hang on your camper’s wall, either in the living area, bedroom, or bathroom.
You’re going to need a pack of about 50 plastic spoons and some heavy duty cardboard (that hasn’t been bent) or some fiberboard. You’ll also need a glue gun, some spray paint, and optionally a small hand mirror.
First, remove the handles from each spoon.
Cut out a couple of rings from cardboard or medium-density fiberboard. Connect them together with the spoon handles and some glue.
Using a hot glue gun, make a backing from a few sheets of cut up heavy duty paper.
Start gluing on the spoons!
To make the spoons look less like ‘spoons’, consider sanding down the rough edges where you broke off the handles.
Layer the spoons to create the flower design.
Using primer first, give the form a good coating of paint.
Maybe the center could be a bit darker for some depth?
Using your hot glue gun once again (or a specific glass adhesive), glue in a small mirror in the opening behind the flower petals.
And that’s all there is to it! You could make this flower in any color pattern. Or, if you don’t like the mirror in the center…just use a solid color backing as the focus of the design. But hey, who doesn’t like taking a peek at themselves every now and then?!
