The spoon tree was a lot of fun to make,but way more fun to destroy. When we were asked how we were going to destroy a project made entirely out of plastic, there was only one stand out option. Fire. After we were told we couldn't set the thing in flames, Mr.Sands gave us a heat gun, which was just as effective in melting the heck out of plastic spoons.
My statement explaining my reason for destruction (as written sloppily in this picture along with the plan of destruction) was that melting a tree made out of plastic spoons symbolized global warming. There was a lot of irony in making a tree out of plastic and having humans melting it considering plastic is manmade and it is humans contributing to global warming in the first place.
We took a lot of pictures while destroying the spoon tree. This is what it ended up looking like. Also, I would not suggest melting plastic. It smells very bad.
