Use an old spoon or fork to make a silverware keychain for yourself or to give as a gift.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 15 minutes or less

Here's How:

  1. Cut the handle off of spoon or fork about 2-1/2 inches from the end, using a pair of cutting pliers.
  2. Then, bend the skinny end of the handle around a key ring, forming a closed loop (needle nose pliers work well for this).
  3. Thread your keys onto your new keychain or wrap it and give it as a gift.

Tips:

  1. Use the same technique to make a pendant necklace or a pair of earrings
  2. Thrift stores and yard sales are a cheap source for odds and ends silverware
