DIY Lotus Flower

I am really excited about how this lotus flower spoon craft turned out. A couple of months ago, I found pictures of a similar project on Pinterest, so I decided to make my own version. It was simple, cheap, and fast to make.


  • Glass container (I bought mine from Dollar Tree)
  • Plastic spoons (I used about 50 spoons – it depends on the size of your container)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

Step 1: Cut the stems off of your spoons. While it is possible to break the stem off with your hands, it is also painful.

Step 2: Starting with the top of the container, glue your first layer of spoon heads on. As the shape of your container changes, you’ll need to change the part of the spoon you glue.

Step 3: Finish gluing the rest of the spoons in layers around your container. You will want to overlap the spoons so they look like petals.

Step 4: You’re done!
Next time I make one, I want to try experimenting with a different spoon color and glass container. Let me know if you decide to make one!
