I just love the idea of old spoons with words on it and think they would work perfect for seating cards or table numbers for your wedding. And the best part – they are really easy to make!
You’ll need to find spoons that are silver plated – these are much easier to flatten! You’ll also need a hammer, a black pen and a set of metal alphabet + number stamps.
First flatten the spoon! I found the best way was to set the spoon on a brick and flatten it there, but wrap it in a towel so the spoon doesn’t get too scratched. Next, get your letters out and determine what you are spelling. I would start my words in the middle so they stay pretty center.
Once you have the letter selected, bang each letter about 10 times – you want to make sure it gets indented enough! After you have the word spelled out, I went over the letters with the black sharpie to make them pop a bit more – don’t worry if you get too much marker on the spoons – you can wash it off with a bit of rubbing alcohol. I think wooden boxes, vintage tins or even a bunch in a suitcase would be super cute.
