Personal and custom – why do we love those words so much? Sometimes it is the little touches that we do for people that make the biggest difference. These adorable, stamped, personal, and custom stamped spoons make your table setting…well…special. Just like the people around the table, right? Welcome Karianne as she shows up to make these stamped spoon napkin rings.
Hello Infarrantly Creative readers!
It’s KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms and I’m so happy to be here today to show you an easy and fun project for the holidays.
Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner?
Will your house be filled with aunts and uncles and cousins and nieces and nephews and the occasional straggler or two?
After you’ve cooked the turkey and fixed the stuffing
and creamed the potatoes and baked your signature pie….
….why not set a table fit for your own HGTV show.
Make your own hand-stamped napkin rings from vintage silver plate….
…and get ready to impress. 🙂
How To Make a Stamped Spoon Napkin Ring
spoon (at the risk of stating the obvious)
steel stamping block
ultra fine sharpie marker
Step 1: Flatten the spoon with a rubber mallet
Hammer the spoon until flat.
You will still have some bumps when you finish.
They’re called character.
Step 2: Choose the size of stamps you want to use
Here are the three sizes of stamps I have.
1/4 (largest)…..all caps.
5/64 (2mm) (medium)…..all caps.
3/32 (smallest) …..lower case.
I used the 1/4 for stamped spoon napkin ring.
Step 3: Stamp spoon
Place spoon on the stamping block.
Hold the silver stamp where you want the letter to go and hit hard with a hammer several times.
Sometimes you have to flip the spoon over and flatten it again when the edges curl up slightly.
Fill in letters with an ultra fine Sharpie marker.
Step 4: Bend spoon
Bend spoon with your hands until the spoon forms a narrow “u” creating your napkin ring.
Place around napkin…..
…..and serve up Thanksgiving. 🙂
May your day be full of friends and laughter and joy.
Happy early Thanksgiving.
