Anthro Vase Knock-Off

OK, who doesn't love a knock-off, especially if it's from anthropologie.  I had a plain light blue vase  that I picked up in the summer and had used Sharpie oil pens to draw rectangles around the bottom and near the top lip to add some interest.   I liked how it looked but never loved it. 
Well here's my vase now and NOW I love it.

Here's how it went from generic to gorgeous:

Since it's been super cold outside and not wanting to brave the elements, I've spent my fair share of time blog hopping and staying warm.  While searching new blogs I came across a beautiful vase with this white porcelain flower on it.....or so I thought.  I read further down and realized that the flower was made from PLASTIC SPOONS.  That's right spoons!!

This fun blog (The Turquoise Piano) led me to a tutorial (Can't Stop Making Things) that I followed to get this gorgeous flower

It's made from 14 spoons.
The tutorial is great and was super easy to follow and it's so fun to watch the spoons warp and transform into petals.

So if you're ever stuck inside with nothing to do....pull out some spoons and make flowers....
Who knew?
(thanks Dr. Suess)




  1. I can't believe those are plastic spoons! Turned out beautiful!

  2. That is seriously sooooo cute! I want one! I can't believe how cute it turned out....out of spoons?!

  3. That sounds like a fun thing to do when stuck at home. However, I have zero faith that if I did it, it would turn out to look anything like a flower.

  4. That is seriously crazy. Who knew melted plastic spoon could look like porcelain? I always wonder who originally came up with such ideas, did they say one day: I wonder what would happen if I melted plastic spoons and then presto they have a rose! Did it smell funny when you were melting them?

  5. That is amazing! What a super cute accessory for the vase! I think I know what I'm going to make tomorrow!

  6. I have seen the flower spoon thin circulating around, but I haven't seen it on a vase- it looks awesome! Happy you linked to Things I've Done Thursday!
