Materials and Tools Needed
- Silver Spoons
- Rubber Hammer
- Metal Stamps
- Drill + Metal Bit
Select the spoons you want to use. A set of spoons can be used to create matching handles or you can mix and match a variety of styles.
PROJECT TIP: Silver-plated spoons are very easy to work with. They bend smoothly and are strong enough to hold up to normal wear and tear.
Use a rubber mallet [so you won’t damage the silver] to flatten the head of the spoon. The spoon will still have a few ridges and bumps even though it is almost flat.
Bend the handle with your hands. Use the natural bend in the spoon, and apply pressure until it resembles the shape of a handle. Adjust the pressure if you want the handles smaller or larger.
Step Four [Optional]
Stamp the spoon with an organizational message. Use rubber mallet to hammer the metal alphabet stamps into the flattened spoon. You can forgo stamping the spoons if you would prefer to have a blank spoon handle.
Tape the spoon to a block of wood, and drill holes in the top and bottom of the spoon. Screw the spoons into the cabinet.
