So it has been a crazy stressful DIY bathroom remodel week for me but that is a whole other story that I will share on Renovation Real Talk on my YouTube channel. But any who, as promised I am sharing all the details to the DIYs I created for my Homie’s room. My homie, Destoni, absolutely loved the chrysanthemum inspired mirror and guess what it is made of plastic spoons! I know right, mind blown! So here are the step to create your very own chrysanthemum inspired mirror.

First, get your supplies. You will need:
Plastic spoons (min. 12 packs of spoons but it depends on your size mirror. I had to make runs to Dollar Tree several #bummer)
Mirror (purchased 16 in mirror from the craft store)
Hot Glue Gun
Hot Glue Sticks
E600 adhesive (not pictured)
Next, measure 2 inches around the circumference of the template. Making these marks will help keep your spoons evenly spaced the first couple of rows. After that, you can freestyle the placement.
After you make your marks cut the handles off of the spoons. I would suggest getting the white spoons instead of the clear spoons. The clear spoons are harder the to cut with regular scissors. Now that you have your spoons cut start hot gluing them to your template. This can be repetitive and boring. Do what I did and turn on Missy Elliot Pandora station. You have no choice but to keep going with Fatman Scoop yelling, ” LET’S GO! LET’S GO! LET’S GO!”
Once all your spoons are glued down it is time to spray paint it. Make sure you get the paint in the hard to notice spots too.
Use the E600 to glue your mirror to the underside of the cardboard and hot glue the rope to the front border.
