Silverware Art

This was a fun project. I went to a local thrift store and bought different forks, knives and spoons. I also bought old frames from there too-to make this awesomeness!

What you will need:
Picture frames
Spray paint

I layed out the silverware & spray painted it white. I used a primer for metal to make sure the paint would ahere properly, then I spray painted them with a white gloss paint.
(You could play around with painting them any color really, use your imagination)

I took apart the frames, and used the normal backings and spray painted them a dark grey.

I then painted the frames a gloss white. I used paint for plastic because the frames were cheap plastic and this worked best on them.

After they were sprayed with several coats of paint, and they all had dried....
I placed the silverware on the grey backings to decided how I wanted them placed first.

Then I used the glue on the silverware only on the parts that touch the surface of the backing.
 (I used my favorite glue E-6000 but you must give it time to dry completely)

And placed them back on the backings carefully.

Once dried completely, I put the frames back on.

Now you can put them up on your kitchen or dining room walls.

Have fun!
