While I am writing these words, I can hear a voice in my head: “Not again a DIY cutlery project!” Do I have a choice?…
… Since I ran wild on Ebay one night, due to sleep deprivation and boredom, I have a whole drawer full of different pieces of cutlery. As long as I find a use for these, I can make my family and friends believe that my habit of hoarding material is totally cute and charming and not a reason for an intervention *.
* I do not want to know what happens if someone finds my collection of lace ribbons. I got these after a fun night with a pot of black tea and my discovery of Dawanda (the German version of Etsy).
You need an oblong piece of wood, for example pallet-wood …
… and a silver or silver-plated ladle.
To get a strong contrast to the silver, I have darkened the wood. The tutorial for this can be found HERE.
Next, I bent the ladle. This is very easy with silver or silver-plated material. I didn´t even need a clamp (or my Iron Man suit *)
* Wouldn´t it be wonderful to have one? Then I wouldn´t need all my tools and I would get a lot of storage space back.
Depending on the ladle, you might need to drill a hole in the silver for a screw. You can find a tutorial for this HERE. Either way, you must definitely drill a hole in the wood. Now you only have to stuck a screw first trough the ladle and then through the wood and mount the tea-light-holder on the wall.
