I am not sure about you, but I feel guilty whenever there are tons of plastic spoons going to waste after a party or celebration. So, I always look for ways to recycle them and give them a new life. Many of the crafts I usually see are wall art; they look beautiful and creative. This time I am specifically looking for a lighting project that I can do with them. I found this lovely and easy DIY plastic spoon lampshade by Artisan Pallet on Youtube. Who would’ve thought this is made of plastic spoons once lighted up at night? It surely is an incredible idea. You can also use it as a home decoration for your living room or bedroom. If you like this, save the spoons next time, clean them and turn them into this flower-like lampshade. Read on or watch the video below for the full instructions on how to make this decor piece.



  • thick plastic cup
  • plastic spoons
  • pair of scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • lightbulb holder
  • colored LED lightbulb (make sure it can fit inside the plastic cup)
  • razor blade




Step 1:

Cut the handle of all the plastic spoons up until the neck using a razor blade or a pair of scissors. Cut a circle on the bottom of the plastic cup.

Step 2:

Once done, place the cup upside down then add glue around the top and start gluing the spoons. After the first layer, add glue to the in-between at the bottom then attach more spoons. Keep doing the same process until you reach the bottom. Make sure to add glue to the sides of the spoons. The outcome will look like a lotus flower. Let it dry completely.
