Plastic flowers


If you have not used a glue gun before, ask an adult to assist you; the hot glue can give you burn blisters.

Recycled items

  • Plastic spoons
  • Buttons/pom-poms
  • Small, round, hard cardboard piece about the size of a R5,00 coin (this will form the base of the flower)

Also needed

  • Glue gun
  • Scissors


  1. Snip the heads off 5 plastic spoons from the necks to make one flower.
  2. Using the glue gun, place a lot of glue on the round cardboard. Start to arrange the petals to form a daisy-like flower. You will need to work quickly before the glue cools down.
  3. Place a button or pom-pom in the middle to form the centre of the flower.
