For all the sprigs and twigs summer brings your way. A vintage plastic spoon handle is cut to form a bud vase. A suction cup on the back lets it hang on a window or mirror.

MaxwellStreet writes: the how to: it was a plastic spoon, so i sawed the spoon part off the handle, which is hollow. Then i just drilled a small hole in the back for the suction cup, and there you have it :) I've made a few with metal knives too, but it's a little harder to find hollow knife handles Posted: 3:39 pm on April 27th
