If you’re looking for a unique and inexpensive holiday craft, check out these fun DIY Christmas trees using an unexpected craft supply! 🎄

I made this festive centerpiece by simply hot gluing plastic spoons and forks to craft cones! You can use any color spoon you’d like or even spray paint the entire tree after it’s been glued to customize it. The best part is, most of the supplies can be found at the dollar store.


DIY Plastic Spoon or Fork Christmas Trees

Supplies Needed:



  • Paint the cone the same color as your plastic forks, and let dry.
  • Cut the handles off of forks using wire cutters.
  • Start from the bottom and glue forks (facing out) around the bottom in an even circle. Rotate the circle for the next row so that you start in-between two of the forks below to create a stacked look.
  • Keep gluing forks all the way up the cone.
  • Stick a couple handles at the top (if desired) and finish with a ribbon on top.

Note: In this example, I used a 5.9 inch Styrofoam cone from Dollar Tree with about 75 mini silver forks also from Dollar Tree. Spoons can also be used instead of forks.


I also made a larger tree from a 9 inch Styrofoam cone from Walmart and about 60 white spoons from the dollar store. I decided to spray paint it using gold metallic spray paint after all the spoons were glued on and then added a decorative bow to the top.

I grouped three trees together on a white cake plate and have it displayed on my kitchen table! So fun, I love it.

Such a cute and easy craft that I hope you’ll enjoy, too!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
