Make these cute and easy Dollar Tree Spoons for Christmas décor. I’ve combined a thrift store find vase with Dollar Tree plastic spoons to create a fun addition for Christmas décor for my kitchen.
Using a Cricut to make the graphics means this is an easy DIY craft for the holidays.

Using dollar store items for seasonal crafts is always something I enjoy. It helps to keep décor budget friendly.
Christmas Spoons Made with Cricut
You can always find these plastic white spoons at Dollar Tree. Four come in a package and they are great to craft with.
I picked up this boot vase from my local Goodwill a few months ago. I thought about painting it black, like Santa’s boots, but decided that I liked the dark green well enough to keep it. The vase was in good condition and just needed to be cleaned up a little. There was a Target sticker on the bottom, but I never saw these vases there. I was happy to find it marked down to .99 at Goodwill.
Using Cricut Design space, I searched for faces for a Santa, an elf, a snowman, and a Rudolph. I wanted them to be simple designs and I found just what I was looking for.
After cutting and weeding, I used transfer paper to attach each graphic to a spoon. I love that the spoons were already white, so they didn’t need to be painted. Dollar Tree also has wooden spoons that could be used for this after being painted.
To hold the spoons in place inside the vase, I looked through my craft stash for some floral foam. I didn’t find just what I was looking for, but I did find some styrofoam balls. I like to use what I have on hand when I can.
*You might notice that the elf looks a little odd here. I forgot to weed out the green part of his face. I actually didn’t even notice this until after I had taken what I thought would be the final photos for the post. Oops! I had to do a bit of weeding and re-take the final photos.
I had to slice a bit of the ball away to have it fit down inside of the vase. For filler, I added poly-fill to look like a bit of snow.
After more craft stash searching, I found this Merry Christmas ribbon that was just the right width to fit for near the top of the vase.
I picked up this package of mini wreaths recently because I knew they would come in handy for some crafting.
The ribbon is hot glued around the vase and the mini wreath is hot glued on top of the ribbon.
I haven’t started decorating for the holidays yet, but I’m looking forward to having this on our kitchen counter for a festive addition to the kitchen.
I love keeping the cost low for small decorative items like this. Using dollar store items and a thrift store find keeps this a budget friendly Christmas Craft.
