I'm intrigued by folks who collect spoons - souvenir spoons, baby spoons, salt spoons, silver spoons.  And now I'm beginning to see the possibilities . . . . .

Not only were these spoons and forks repurposed
into a wind chime, votives give it even more charm.

Okay, let's all say it together, "That's so clever!"
Custom Made

Spoons as handles - I love this idea!

What am I looking at?  See the crossed spoons?
They're actually soldiered to a fancy plate stand.

Watch bands made from silver spoons can be found online
with prices ranging from $35 to $300 depending on whether
you choose silver plated or sterling silver.

Flatware jewelry remains popular and is charmingly unique:

A monogrammed initial spoon ring costs
less than $20 and is an ideal gift.

A vintage flattened spoon makes a beautiful pendant:
A set of 10 French spoon hooks is priced at $85 but that's
only $8.50 each if you give them individually as gifts.

A personalized gift makes the present even more
special knowing that the giver put a lot of thought
into it and either made it or ordered it just for you.

 Who would have thought to upcylcle a spoon into a picture frame?

A mini-collage in a spoon is such a sweet idea.

When I run across something that I really like, the first
thought that goes through my mind is, "Can I make that?"

Lots of us would like to stamp/engrave our own spoons but where do
we start?  Beaducation is just one of hundreds of online sites that offers
tutorials on stamping metal along with a source for purchasing the supplies.  

Hmmm . . . . maybe a metal stamping kit would be a great gift to give ourselves!


  1. I love those lamps made from spoons!

  2. Those hanging light pendants are so cool!

  3. I LOVE everything!
    These are so creative, and I want the light!

  4. I like the spoon pictures with the little bows the best... soooo cute.

    1. These are wonderful! I once was at a yard sale and the home owner had a spoon wind-chime hanging on her porch.
      When I ask if it was for sell, her told me no and then possessed to tell me that each spoon hanging on the chime was a spoon from a female family member . . . from grandma, to aunts. I've always remembered this and thought it would be a wonderful keepsake. Keep Smile, Connie
      great post!
      I really need to get with it and make one :)
