I found a set of cutlery at a garage sale for dirt cheap! I’ve heard that people have re-purposed spoons and forks to make different things. I have a pair of pliers and I’m eager to learn what I can do with my new purchase. Any ideas?
Did you know you can use a spoon to hang up your jacket? Well, a bent spoon that is.
Cutlery is one of those things: we all have some – some are fancy, while others offer a more sleek look. Whichever your desired style, it’s quite easy to purchase spare cutlery for this project at a flea market, garage sale etc.
– Drill with bit
Lay the spoon wrong side up on a sturdy surface and hit the scoop with the hammer to flatten its “bubble”. Drill a hole in the middle of the spoon’s now flattened scoop. This is where the screw will hold the “hook” to the wall.
While holding the spoon from each end, bend the spoon to a forty-five degree angle.
Screw the spoon to the wall and there you have it- it has been transformed into a sleek wall hook!
