This is so neat ....A friend I chat with another forum showed me these because she knows I like stained glass.
These have to be spoons . I really like these ! I can just picture a Mobile made with these !
Those are adorable! Do you flatten the spoon first, or leave it curved?
Those are so pretty. And yet another creative use of spoons. They make a perfect dragonfly body.
LOVE them, but then again, I just love dragonflies!
They look flattened to me . I'm telling ya - if you have enough spoons - you could decorate the world !!!
and once again we found out who has been taking all the spoons from the local thrift shops.
those are seriously cute though, and make me wish I worked with stained glass.
I would think the bowl of spoon is left so the raised part is the head & the dragonfly has dimension not a squashed look. I had gotten a stained glass dragonfly pattern off the web somewhere with a tablespoon & it was not flattened, I have all the pieces in a plastic bag as GF & I were going to make them(things got in the way)Jan
I'm wondering about the wings. Do you think they are soldered on? Other than the wings, they would probably be easy to make.
Luna, you could probably Welbond the wings on. Or use gauge 24 copper or stainless wire to attach. Jan
These are so cool!! I don't think this will be one project I will try to tackle though, but goodness knows I should with all the spoons I have.
maybe they are disappearing (spoons) into back yards and garbage disposals. I found if you go to Dollar Tree you can get 4 in a pkg for a dollar....for this type of item, they would be great. I love these dragonflies.
Does anyone have a picture of it?
Click on the link below to take you to another Garden Web forum that has a picture of one of them. I'm not sure if it is the one that toomuchglass posted but it has to be close. It sure is cute!
