Materials: Plastic spoons, cheese ball container, hot glue gun, jewels (optional), rubber bands, staple gun, rings, battery-operated lights, chain or rope. 

 Make sure a parent is with you to help with the glue gun and staple gun. 

Here are the steps for you to build your very own spoon chandelier:

  • Get a large, round cheese ball container and wash it out
  • Cut the spoon handles off (you'll need only the bottoms)
  • Glue the spoons to the plastic tub in any pattern you desire
  • Pick off all the extra strings of hot glue
  • Decorate with the jewels (optional)
  • Staple the rubber bands on the top, then take a ring and hook all the rubber bands on it
  • Tape lights inside
  • Hook your chain or rope on the ring and hang your chandelier on the ceiling somewhere

It’s a great winter craft and is sure to light up your day!
