You can create garden hooks for hanging indoor or outdoor plants by using your old spoons. Just bend them and flatten the spoons, then simply put them wherever you want to hang a planter. Use smaller spoons for the small plants and larger spoons or ladles for larger plants.
Decorative spoons make wonderfully unique Christmas ornaments. Simply hot glue ribbon to the handle of each one and hang them on your tree. This is an excellent idea for first baby spoons and you can have a special ornament on your tree for every child in your home. These are very inexpensive and very easy to make and will help you to create a stunning Christmas tree display and one that is very personal.
Since spoons technically belong in the kitchen, why not turn those old spoons into lovely decor that you can hang in the kitchen? Just choose a collection of spoons of all different sizes, paint them however you want and hang them in your kitchen area. For a really unique country look, tie them all up with twine and hang them from an old board. They look beautiful and you can customize them anyway you want when you are painting them.
This one is a bit more complicated but definitely worth it. You will need a relatively large board, however long you want your coat hook. Just flatten the spoons out, bend up the ends of the handles and affix them to the board with screws. You can use spoons that all match or mix it up a bit to make it really unique. If you want, you can even have the spoons personalized before you affix them with the names of everyone in your home.
