Make your own Recipe Holders out of Vintage Spoons!

Looking for a unique handmade Mother's day gift? Or a quick 'no muss - no fuss' craft for Girl's Night? All you need are some vintage spoons and a glue gun!

I was lucky enough to be given some vintage silver-plated utensils. I've been taking them out, rubbing them with toothpaste and staring at them for almost a year, waiting for crafty inspiration. Yesterday the recipe box was sitting next to the spoons. The light bulb turned on! Vintage Spoon Recipe Holders!

You will need:

Vintage spoons
Glue gun

Find some old spoons. Thrift stores are a great source. Goodwill spoons were only 10 cents each the last time I checked. Pick spoons with relatively thin handles.

Bend the spoon at the natural curve right between the handle and scoop.

Bend again about an inch back from the first bend.

Using a glue gun, draw two lines off the center of the spoon. This will help stabilize the recipe holder.

Let the glue cool.

Prop up a recipe card.

Done!

  1. Oooh Cool! I love how it's so easy to make! I was wondering how you got them to bend... who knew it would be that easy?

  2. Tooooo cute! Absolutely love them.
    Last year I picked up a whole box of gorgeous vintage spoons. Random patterns. I made some Herb markers for my potting garden. I embossed/ punched the letters into the "spoon" and use the handles to stick into the dirt.
    I never thought of making recipe holders out of them. Would be great for holding notes, too.
    Thank you for inspiring me!
    Hope you will pop over for a visit.
    Have a lovely week.
