When are utensils not utensils?

When they're art, of course!


Upcycling old (or even new) silverware is really fun and a little challenging. It's a different surface to work on but can become a gorgeous canvas!

A large spoon makes a great canvas, especially for decoupaging a piece of napkin. And it can hold other goodies and embellishments...



Turn a setting into a feast for the eyes!


Look at that crusty goodness!


Decoupaged pieces of napkins tells a story. Those tines were tricky but the vintage picture came out fab!


And don't forget the handles! Crackle paste and different papers, along with metal doo-dads and distressing inks, give each piece character! 


I hope its inspired you to pull out that old silverware and create some mouth-watering art of your own!
