How to Upcycle Old Silverware

How to Upcycle Old Silverware

silver spoons

When I visit second hand stores, flea markets or vintage stores, I often see old silverware for sale. I have always liked the handles, because they tend to be rather ornate. Over the years I have spotted very crafty people shaping and upcycling these old and forgotten utilitarian tools into rather interesting objects. Today I like to share how you can upcycle old silverware for a variety of purposes.
