Old silver cutlery is perfect for do it yourself projects, because it can be used not only in cooking but also in the whole house. The concept of recycling is a new trend that can also be used here. Rather than storing old utensils in a drawer or a closet, many creative upcycling ideas can inspire you.

One of the easiest and creative upcycling ideas is to make a wind chime. Old cutlery works perfectly for wind chimes, as they create a beautiful sound. You need about 10 pieces of forks, spoons etc., hammer and nail (or drill), 10 pieces of heavy string, a hook for hanging and a round piece of wood or metal. The string should be cut into different lengths so that your silverware can hang at different heights, as with almost any set of wind chimes.

Other easy and unique upcycling ideas to use your old cutlery again are the napkin rings. These are easy to make. Simply bend each utensil in a round circle, and you have the perfect napkin ring. To get the perfect round shape, wrap it to a vegetable or tennis ball. If they can not be bent by hand, you can also use a pair of pliers. Flatten the cutlery with a hammer.

Cabinet door handles are another good option for crafting with cutlery. Just bend the utensil in the center, in a semi-circle. Bow only in the middle, and let the two sides flat and straight. Then drill a hole through each side of the silverware, with a drill or hammer and nail. This will give the perfect addition to any kitchen.
