The first thing you'll need to do is cut the spoon handles down to size.
Arrange a pair of spoons opposite each other under the ladle, so that there is some length of handle outside the ladle edge. We'll need this later in order to bend the spoons. Then, lift the ladle and mark across the center of the spoons. Go ahead and mark the rest of the spoons to the same length.
Using the hacksaw, cut all the handles off at the place you've marked.
