Step 2: Lets Begin!


First you will need to hammer the head of the spoon flat.
Find a very hard surface, like concrete. Lay your hand towel down.

-If you are using a heavy mallet:
Begin to hammer the head of your spoon until it's as flat as you want it to be

-If you are using a hammer:
Make sure the spoon is covered with a towel before you hit it so your hammer doesn't scratch the spoon, then hammer the spoon until it's a flat as you would like it to be
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!
Lovely idea, now I want to pick up some head pins at Michael's; also: ever tried a silver spoon? I haven't seen one used for eating in ages, but I could pick one up at a pawn shop (last resort after yard sale, &amp; flea market)!
A silver spoon would be SO cool! I have yet to try it. They are super strong and hard to hammer though! Let me know if you discover a technique that works!
<p>This is fab, thanks!</p>
realy wonderful idea,like your insructable,my minds going wild -w- this idea,thanks!
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. :)
