This DIY Spoon Mirror Is Sure To Get Your Creative Juices Flowing


Here at Strong Mind we love the easy Do-It-Yourself projects that anyone can do with little problems. This is one of those DIY’s that you can make special and at a very low cost. We found this project from Craftaholics Anonymous and all of those perks we talked about are marked off. Sometimes these types of projects can really test your patients but we can assure you that patients is not one of the ingredients that is needed to get the great results that you want. Just keep looking at the finished product if your are loosing interest in this project and that should give you the push you need to finish it up. The only things you will need to get started are board backing for the plaque and mirror, a small circular mirror, lots of plastic spoons, a pair of scissors, some colored spray paint and clear glue in a glue gun.


From one piece of card cut a circular disc the size of the mirror and glue the mirror to it. Place the mirror in the center of another piece of card face down, and then lay a couple of rows of spoon heads alongside to establish the radius of the card you will need. Create a large circle and cut out the card. Cut the heads off all the spoons (approximately 100). Measure a circle in the center of the large card. Starting at the outside, glue a circle of spoons to the board. Then Overlap the spoons and repeat the process three more times until the board is covered. Once the glue has dried, spray all the spoons with two coats of paint – using clear spoons saves on having to paint the reverse side. Once the paint is dry, attach the mirror by gluing the cardboard back to the inner circle of spoons. Finally, glue a small piece of ribbon to the back to create a loop for hanging the mirror.
