    Step 1

    This was an old cabinet door I got for .50!!!

    Step 2

    Using a wire cutter, cut the neck off all the spoons. I used about 6 bags.

    Step 3

    Hot glue leaving a small space between each.

    Step 4

    Fill in the gaps with the second row of spoons.

    Step 5

    Keep going until you have it filled to the mirror's edge.

    Step 6

    I used a gray primer spray paint, but depending on the color you are painting it, you could use white.

    Step 7

    Once primed, paint the darkest color starting in the center then work your way out.

    Step 8

    I painted 3 layers of spoons one color before adding white paint to make the next 3 layers.

    Step 9

    One you have the layers, take it outside and spray with a gloss sealer.
