Upcycled Silverware Crafts

January 30, 2014

When you visit Goodwill, you are sure to find a bunch of items you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Many times I have found silverware that is mismatched. Don’t pass those by! Instead, pick up a couple of spoons and try making these fun crafts with them:

Hanging Flower Basket Holders

All you need to make these is a steel drill bit to drill a hole in the spoon so that you can screw onto the wall. A pair of pliers will come in handy for bending the spoon into shape. [Via]

Light Bulb Décor

Another great idea for spoon crafts is to spruce up a boring light bulb. Here is an example of creativity at work! Use thick wire in the same color as the spoons to bind them together around a dangling bare bulb. They make for a great addition to the décor at special events.  [Via]

Tea Light Holder

This simple craft can be made the same way as the hanging basket holder, just flipped. Use a drill to screw in the handles and bend up the bowl for a perfect place to rest your tea light candles. [Via]

Coat Hooks

Last but not least is a fun and useful spoon craft. Flattening out the spoons is not necessary; it works well either way. Just screw the bowls into a sturdy and decorative piece of wood and bend up the handles to create one-of-a-kind coat hooks or towel hooks. [Via]
