What Can I Make With Spoons?
Hey everyone! I have a ton of antique yet crappy spoons. The finish is wearing of, so they taste absolutely awful. Here is my challenge: What can I make with these spoons?
So far, I've found a tutorial for making spoons into plant markers, but I'm not much of a gardener.
Bracelets, pendants... pretty much any piece of jewelry.
If you have a metal stamping kit, you can stamp words into them.
I saw a lot of sculptures made out of spoons, they where of horses. That is all I got but I promise to come back if I think of more ideas. OH original idea just now. If you heat it up enough to where you can bend it, Bend the top and bottom to where the bottom will sit flat on a surface and the top can hold things Like the shape of an E with out the middle line. You can have a candle holder for small candles of an incense holder thingy (the thing where a candle is on the bottom and smelly liquid is on the top in the bowl-holder) You could also make a pin wheel it you attach them like a flower to a bamboo rod. and make it so they can spin around. a spoon chandelier would be really awesome. Ha, I said I was out of ideas and then ideas came! New droar handles, That could be neat. You could make a headband with the round parts, that might be really bad or really good. OK now I am out of ideas. But again, I will come back if I think of more
Wow! You're on a roll! XD
I saw somebody on Etsy who bent spoons into rings and bracelets.
If they're silver an easy way to polish them up and make them sparkle is to use tooth paste. You'll want actual white paste not gel and use your hands or an extremely soft brush.
I've seen them bent and used for hooks like coat or towel hooks.... and like Laurenzoe ~ said, I've seen cutlery chandeliers for kitchens that look so clever and cute
I saw these plant markers made from metal spoons and thought they were cool http://www.parenthacks.com/2011/04/homemade-garden-plant-marker-tags.html
I also saw a thing where they where bent and made into curtain holders--
