Marie from Scissors and Spoons
is here today with a great idea for some cute snowflake ornaments!
I am so excited to be here to share a quick, easy, and inexpensive craft using Thanksgiving leftovers.
Nope, not those leftovers, these ones:
I hate seeing plastic end up in the
trash so when everyone finished Thanksgiving dinner I collected all of the silver colored plastic utensils.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with a bunch of used plastic forks and knives when I saved them
from the trash, but the handles reminded me of a snowflake pattern so I decided to make them into
snowflake Christmas tree ornaments.
First–while wearing safety glasses!–I used a wire cutter to cut the utensils into pieces.
Second, using a hot glue gun, I glued the pieces of utensil to the back
of glass gems in a snowflake pattern.
Finally, I glued a piece of string onto the back of each snowflake.
That’s it! Not bad for
something that would have otherwise ended up in the trash huh? I think that these ornaments would be
especially cute on a kitchen/cooking/baking theme Christmas tree, but wouldn’t look out of place on a
more traditional tree.
Allison thanks for allowing me to visit today.
Thanks for sharing Marie!! Those are fantastic!
