The actual time that I have for a good craft project is severely lacking, but that doesn’t stop me from “pinning” away like crazy on pintrest. My list of dream projects is growing by the minute.
This mirror stole my heart and I immediately knew that I wanted to recreate it in my kitchen.
So I bought all the supplies, rolled up my sleeves and got going. The red spoons I bought weren’t quite the right shade of red…so spray paint to the rescue. Yes. I spray painted 150 plastic spoons. The mirror I purchased as a party store. I used hot glue to attach the spoons to the mirror.
All went well…at first. Joe helped me hang the mirror (not something easy to do when the exterior edge is covered with hot glued plastic spoons). It was hung perfectly so I quickly grabbed the window cleaner and wiped the finger prints away. We stepped back to admire our handy work and LITERALLY 4 seconds later about 5 spoons fell off. Plink, plink, plink. AND the plinking hasn’t stopped. Daily. We’ll be quietly sitting in the living room and “plink, plink, plink”…followed by some groaning on my part. I’ll close to door to the garage and “plink, plink, plink”. This what is currently hanging in my kitchen.
I’ll be trying to find another glue option is weekend…otherwise I’ll be patching the holes created to hang the mirror.
One entertaining thing is that the girls have decided to take the spoons when they fall to decorate the potted plants. So our plants all have spoons planted in the soil.
