I love Spoon Necklaces!
This tutorial will show you how to make your own personalized spoon necklace.

Step 1: What you Will Need

What You Will Need:
-Spoons (Get them from a thrift store. Get at least three in case you mess up the lettering)
-Hammer or Heavy Mallet
-Sand Paper
-Steel Wool or Heavy Nail File
-Metal Letter Stamps (Any hobby store will have them)
-Hand towel or towel
-Twine or a Small Rope for the necklace

Optional if you want to decorate your necklace:
-Headpins (Flat or Circle head)
I suspect that the cheaper and crappier the quality of your spoons, the better the pendant will turn out. I have some old &quot;cafeteria quality&quot; spoons that aren't much more than heavy foil -- I think I know what I'll be doing with them this afternoon. One other thing, you might want to hammer your spoons on a piece of rubber, so they don't slide all over the place. I have a rubber block, which is meant for this purpose, but a piece of a bathmat would do just fine.<br><br>Thanks so much for the great idea!
Wonderful! Thank you for the tip! <br><br>You are right. The older or cheaper the spoon is the easier it will be to hammer it.<br><br>Thank you for your insightful comment!

Hi there... <br> A thought to stop the &quot;smearing&quot;. A hockey puck. Cheap, hard rubber, small, and very durable. Drill 2 holes at the top through the flat face about a 1/2 inch apart. Drill 2 holes at the bottom wide enough to accomodate the largest spoon you might use. Make 2 cross bars out of whatever you have, wood, plastic, metal, scrap spoon handles. Put down the spoon, bolt it in place, then whack it. You could even go as far as making inserts to create a &quot;square&quot; for alignment. Great 'ible and I will prolly start my own in the next week or so. Keep up the great work.
I've seen spoons used in a lot of ways, but never like this. Very neat. :)
