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….
Don’t you just love all the fun handle shapes and sizes??
And check out this beauty- from the Madonna Inn!! I think I will save this one to make a fun bracelet or ring, tutorial to come soon!
Metal Stamp Kit (we ordered online here)
First I decided to try hammering a spoon flat and stamp it
Yay Looking good and flat, just gotta keep hammering-ooops looks like I left some zest on the concrete 🙂
Maya had to come say hi too!
While I was hammering Brittany took a stab at some awesome keys we found too!
Made for a super cute necklace!!
After I had my spoon all hammered out I added the words, then used a sharpie to color each letter and wipe off with a paper towel. Be sure to get in all the crevices!!
OOOoooOOO I love it! I think I will need to make one for my sister in law who is an English teacher 🙂
Next I decided to leave the spoon as is and make a spoon for my little tea station in the kitchen!
Gah! So cute! And one more for the tea station….
A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, the medicine go downnnnnnn…..
Oh this project was way too fun and addictive, watch out world I might have a new love of metal stamping 🙂
Happy Thrifty Thursday!
