|yes, I know - awful picture again! maybe I need to take some photography classes....|
wall frames (these were at Hobby Lobby for 50% off - about $5 each)
thrifted silverware (25cents per piece at my local thrift store)
scrapbook paper/fabric (I used scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby)
strong glue like E600
First - spray paint your silverware. I used a glossy black by Krylon. I did get a little overzealous painting and ended up having to use a black Sharpie to do touch up (shhh.... don't tell!)
Second - cut your scrapbook paper/fabric to fit inside your frame. I used spray adhesive and sprayed the cardboard insert from the frame (I put the glass in our recyle bin - no need to keep it, heaven knows it'd just end up broke anyhow) then pressed the paper down on top of it. I did have to do some trimming to get it to fit just right.
Third - glue your silverware directly onto your scrapbook paper/fabric backing. Let it dry for awhile before you hang these on the wall so you can tell they're secure.
Fourth - hang up on your wall and enjoy your thriftiness and craftiness!!!!
