Some of the simplest things look like you spent a bundle. Case in point is this colorful diy mirror made of bright spoons. It is very cool looking giving it a retro chic feeling to any house. Of all places I found it on the Country Living site...who knew huh?!!! All you need to replicate this piece of functional wall art is a hot glue gun, one 18 inch round mirror and 105 brightly colored spoons. You can purchase the spoons in ANY color from www.zuberts.com or any party store. Personally I LOVE LOVE LOVE this color pictured here but Mimosa Yellow also catches my eye from their site. It would look great in a baby's nursery! To make just simply follow the instructions.
STEP 1: Place a generous dot of glue on the back of the base of the handle of your first spoon. Press the spoon onto the mirror so that its bowl sits just outside the mirror's edge and the handle points toward the center.
STEP 2: Put another dot of glue on the back of the second spoon's handle in the same spot, and lay it on the mirror next to the first spoon, so that the widest part of the second one's bowl nestles into the neck of its neighbor.
STEP 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 all around the mirror's perimeter — just be sure to keep the handles pointed at the mirror's center. Then sit back and admire your gorgeous handiwork.
