Description: I’ve seen it few months ago on some DIY website and I loved it. On Sunday morning I decided to make one for myself, so I sent my boyfriend to the shop to get plastic spoons. He was a bit surprised but its not the first time.
First I had to cut handles of all spoons leaving about 5mm so it’s easy to glue. I started from outside row (didn’t measure as much, just when I had about 10cm left I made sure I was putting them the way to cover all), progressing second, third and fourth row exactly the same way.
Spoons for last row I cut really short and sanded (actually my boyfriend did – had to mention) the edges to make nice shape. As glue dries quite fast I could start painting each of them.
I used just 2 colours I used on walls and mixed them together to make different shades. I still need to put some kind of varnish but as I would like to put shiny one I have to buy it.
