ALTERED PLASTIC SPOONS INTO FRIDGE MAGNETS

Hello Friends, Hope you all are doing great . Welcome back !! Today am sharing with you all an altered project using spoons.

Two weeks back while I was browsing through pinterest I came across this altered wooden spoons. I liked them very much and wanted to try.  When we got parcel food from a restaurant last week there were some extra plastic spoons.  Also the rotis were packed using a foil and all the boxes were  inside a brown paper bag.  So not only I enjoyed the food but also recycled the plastic spoons, foil paper and brown paper bag and created this project.




I made it in two different themes - mixed media and secret garden.

The making process:
Mixed media theme:
For the mixed media one  I covered the plastic spoon with the left over aluminium foil ( in which rotis were wrapped) to get a grungy texture. Then randomly applied texture paste and gave the spoon a uniform coat of gesso. Now the spoon is ready to take the paints and sprays. I applied violet, dark blue and magenta pearl acrylics and blue acrylic spray. Once I was satisfied with the result I applied antique gold using the dry brush process. I embellished it using punched flowers.



Secret garden spoon:
This idea is inspired from our recycle queen Rupa's altered strainer into a nest. I covered the spoon with a pattern paper and distressed the edges with brown color. The nest is made by shredding the brown paper bag. The flowers are punched using recollection daisy punch and distressed using inks. The leaves are hand cut , the sentiment is hand written and the butterfly is a print out.



After finishing these spoons I wanted to showcase it in an apt place. My 6 month old baby daughter loves seeing the fridge magnets when I take her to kitchen . So glued two magnets each in both the spoons and added it to our fridge magnet collection for her to enjoy.



See you soon with another creative post. Have a nice weekend.
