DIY Stamped Spoons & Pendants

Post image for DIY Stamped Spoons & Pendants

I know some of you might not want to think about it just yet… but Valentine’s Day is approaching.  I was thinking about DIYs for the holiday and I really like the idea of stamping spoons and pendants as gifts for someone you love. I always think the sweetest Valentines are the handmade ones, or the really subtle and thoughtful ones.  I’ve had a metal stamping kit for a while now, and this was the perfect use for it!

What you need: a metal stamp set (mine is made by Tekton and I ordered it from Amazon last year), a hammer, spoons, and metal pendants. I got my little pendants at A.C. Moore, and for spoons I recommend checking thrift or antique stores!

Make sure you have a hard surface to do this project on.  Be warned- if you do this on a coffee table, you may end up with some dents! I did mine outside on a sidewalk to be safe :). I found that this project was much easier on the small flat pendants, and a bit trickier on the curved spoons, but with a little practice it’s easy! Make sure to hold the stamp and the pendant/spoon as firmly as possible when hammering so that the stamp doesn’t move around at all.

Make one for your loved one with a cute little phrase like “wanna spoon” and give it to them with their coffee in the morning!

Stamp the pendants with sweet phrases like “loved” or “to the moon and back,” or the initials of whomever you’re giving it to!

My friend stamped hers with the Johnny Cash quote “I keep a close watch on this heart of mine.” I love it!

This is such a great idea! I wonder if the metal stamps would work well on wood too. I also found some more Valentine’s DIY ideas here> http://www.fatwallet.com/blog/amazing-diy-valentine-s-gifts-for-your-sweetheart/ I love all of the creativity!
