Vintage Spoon Pendants



Turn old thrift store spoons into these adorable Vintage Spoon Pendants.  These cute DIY pendants are great to give as gifts and are a fun way to play around with all your favorite beads, baubles, odds, and ends.  The great thing about vintage jewelry patterns like this is that no one is like the other, so you can create original pieces for all your friends and family members.  This pendant is truly one of a kind, and is a great way to reuse grandma's old jewelry or an old spoon that you stumble upon in your junk drawer.

Vintage Spoon Pendants

  1. I started with assorted spoons:

  2. The spoons can be put in a vise grip and partially bent, then cut with a hack saw.  Finish bending after cutting to make a loop for the chain:

  3. I always use E-6000 glue for such projects.  The proper way to use E-6000 is to apply the glue to the area, then slide your item onto the glued area.  It creates a better bond to slide the item rather than simply placing it onto the glued area.
  4. Some of the items I glued into the spoons were earrings with the backs removed.  Some of the other bits were small brooches.  The pinbacks can be easily removed with wire clippers.

  5. The pendants would look fine on a simple black cord or silver ball chain.  A more elaborate beaded chain could be used too.  The possibilities are endless!

E6000 glue can be found at any craft store. I see it at a lot of other stores too. Look in the glue section or in hardware too.

I must say I love your spoons, here is another idea which my Aunt did several years ago, She took a spoon that meant something to each of us, and had key rings made from them. Saw off the spoon, just the way you did, put on a good key ring circle, and viola, you have a beautiful key ring. Try it. Thanks again, I love these vintage projects. BB

I like the look of the finished pendants. What would be the best way to keep them clean? It looks like it might be difficult to get around/in between some of the attached items.

R there any pictures of the project, all I see are video advertisements.

Several years ago, I made angels out of the spoon handles, using the handle for the body, and adding wings and halos from a jewelry craft site. I put a pin on the back.
