I actually had to dust my blog off so that I could make a post tonight!? It has been awhile since I have added anything to my blog, but here is a project I recently did.
One of my online groups had an Altered Spoon swap. We each had to alter 2 spoons any way we wanted.
Using a vintage spoon, I added wire and beads up the handle. I added a silver "dream" tag and glass leaf among the beads. In the cup of the spoon, I added moss and a half of a wooden egg that I painted to look like a birds egg. I also used Sharpie markers to add just a little color to the floral design at the end of the spoons handle. I made a wire loop on the back so the spoon can be hung.
The second vintage spoon that I altered had a "sea" theme. I used copper wire at the top of the handles and wired on beads and small shells. At the lower end of the handle, I wired on beads using silver wire. I hung a wired and beaded chandelier crystal in front of the spoons cup. The cup is filled with sea colored micro beads, small sea blue beads, and another shell.
I have altered a lot of items, but never any spoons. This was a lot of fun to do. If you have some old spoons laying around... alter them.
