Spoon Me


What?
Using spoons for breakfast cereal??
Oh, that is sooo this morning.


There's a whole plethora of things you can do with spoons.

Spoon bracelets are really easy and inexpensive.
Simply flatten out the top of the spoon with a hammer


and bend to the desired shape using needle nose pliers.





Another fun idea is using them for bookmarks.


Not feeling the spoon love yet?

Take a peak at what the world wide web has to offer in the spoonage department...

Drill holes in the ends for a more finished looking bracelet.
This would also work really well for earrings.


I love the stamped names. 
So cute!



Lynette Andreasen created a choker with spoon heads.


Wouldn't these spoons make an adorable wedding gift along with ice cream bowls and a scoop?


Spoon Chandeliers??
Why not! 


They are certainly eye catching.


I was really surprised to see how elegant plastic spoons can look!

Bring out your industrial side by creating a clock with a collage of utensils


or even manipulate plastic spoons with a candle to create a porcelain looking rose.


Have you added a spoon project to your to-do list yet?
I'd love to see what you can come up with if you do!

  5. I am so digging the spoons - I just found a stash of monogrammed spoons (not my monogram but lovely nonetheless) at goodwill...if only there were enough for a spoon chandelier!
