How to make plastic spoons ladybugs and bees
Grab your plastic spoons and let’s have fun!
They are soo simple to make but there is one tip that I would love to point out! One insect is made with 3 spoons.
- cut 2 spoons really short .. those will be your wings
- cut 1 spoon with a bit of neck .. that will be your insect of your choice body . It will be easier to install head later. We need some support
- Lay short cut spoons over third one and hot glue them right at the tip
I like to paint middle spoon before I assemble them.
Here is my beginning stages or bumble bee . Just because I love Mackenzie Childs details of black and white I decided to use my duck tape in that pattern for the middle spoon and paint its wings.
Half wood bead makes awesome head . I have used also a round wooden beads . It all up to you what you have.
Just because I love to some whimsical details I decided to add tiny dots to my spoon edges
Perfect summer project with kids

Love to put Dollar Tree items into use! HERE is my take on Angel wings . Still have it on display
absolutely love this project .. Sky is the limit how to decorate them .. Add some napkin for colorful wings .. use napkin ply’s for some texture .. add a BLING too
