Steps to Complete

Step 1

Start by decorating the empty tin. I painted the tin and lid green first and once that was dry, I decoupaged floral paper (this print is by Hazel and Ruby) around the tin and into the inside of the lid.

Step 2

Use the awl to punch 2 holes into the top of the tin, one on each side- opposite of each other.

Step 3

Take a piece of chain and use craft wire to attach it through the holes. I just wrapped wire through the hole and through the last link of the chain.

Note: No chain? This could also be done with ribbon, skipping the wire.

Step 4

Use the awl to punch 2 small holes in the center bottom of the tin.

Step 5

Now take the lid. Use the awl to punch a small hole into the edge of it.

Step 6

Take a 15" or longer piece of craft wire. Make a loop about 1" long on one end and twist the wire end to secure it. Hold the loop at the top, back of your spoon and twist the wire down around your spoon, overlapping in places.

Step 7

Repeat with more spoons. I did 5 spoons in total.

Step 8

Cut a 16" piece of ribbon. Run it through the wire loop at the end of the spoon so that both ends of the ribbon are together on the opposite end. Knot the ribbon ends. Use beads or charms on the ribbon for extra embellishment.

Step 9

Use the awl to punch 2 holes in the bottom of the tin for each spoon. You're going to attach the spoons the same way as the lid/clapper. Try to space them out evenly-ish.

Step 10

Cut a 3" piece of wire, loop it through the end on the knotted ribbon. Run the ends through the holes on the tin and twist them on the inside of the tin to secure.

Step 11

Repeat with the other spoons.
