Thrifty Thursday: Vintage Silverware stamping DIY

Today we got to play with silverware and oh boy was it fun! Who doesn’t love a project that costs a few bucks and has instant gratification and requires you to work outside in the sunshine?? I am sure you have seen the latest greatest trend to have stamped jewelry or silverware- so we decided it was about time to take a zesty stab at our own diy tutorial. While we were out garage sale pickin’ we saw some awesome silverware that we scored for a few bucks and it was time to fly….
