Silver Plastic Spoons ...

Hi Everybody,

So I said to friends that I was going to decorate a round mirror with plastic spoons. Apart from the odd giggle to the outright laugh I got very mixed reactions

But I went ahead and bought some spoons and silver mesh and the silver flowers from Amazon and made a start.

I watched a lot of videos on YouTube and the one that really inspired me to make this mirror was a lady called LuAnn Skaggs and I am adding her video here..... 


I followed her steps but I made mine bigger and a little more elaborate than Lu-Ann's and I used a round mirror instead,  but I am delighted with the result.

It is so pretty and mine is quite big and it is going to look amazing on my wall ... when I find one to add it too. !!

She has so many beautiful ideas and I am going to try some more when I have the time.

Here is a close up of the spoons and their decoration and I had a lot of fun making it. 

I used a really strong epoxy glue to hold everything in place but it smells strong so make sure you work in a well ventilated area

I want to add sparkle to some Christmas presents and I will show you those once I have given them as presents.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    I'm afraid I'd have laughed as well as your friends but the result is amazing, I'll check this lady out!
    I see you had the "wandering" die cutting machine again, how you stay cool, calm and collected is beyond me.
