Advice for backs on plate flowers

I'm having a difficult time finding spoons/forks to fit into the conduit. I've been able to find some, but need to make more backs. So any advice?

TIA

What you can do is "flatten" the conduit a little. Lay it on a flat surface and pound it to an oval shape. You should have better luck with that.

Well that's a good idea!

What a great idea Marlene! Then you can keep them facing inthe direction that you want as well.

I told my husband your advice and he said "Why didn't you tell me that you had more spoons. I would have figured that out!" So I handed him 8 spoons and said have at it!

Well, since one of my mottos is: "If it won't fit, force it!" I have used that method for lots of things! ;-D

I agree...beat it to death! it'll fit one way or another! :) :)

That's a great idea. I've had the same problem trying to find spoons with narrow handles. I will try it now. I'm just wondering if the spoons will hold on some of the heavier plate flowers? Has anyone had problems with them?
