Along with the rest of the world, we are thrilled to be watching the Olympics this week. With games starting today and the opening ceremony tomorrow the kids have been dying to have a little Olympic revelry of our own.
Inspired by this pretty white wreath, we decided to try our hand at crafting with plastic spoons and made these vibrant and fun laurel wreaths. A great activity the whole family can get involved with while watching your favorite sports (ours is so obviously the bobsled). Go team USA!
The process to make the wreaths is crazy simple. Purchase a bag of plastic party spoons, these wreaths took about 24 spoons each. Glue the back of one spoon bowl to the handle underneath. It helps the form to also glue the end of the under handle up, that’s what give the wreath such a pretty curve.
Keep going around the wreath. To make the specific laurel wreath frame; glue one side up and then start on the other side overlapping the bottom spoons. Originally I was going to tie these off with bows- but I ended up loving the graphic spoon effect so much. This might be chalked up as one of the most fun craft projects we’ve done so far.
PS. Planning an Olympic watching party? You should definitely serve this cake – with USA written inside.
