Time: 40 mins Skill level: Intermediate
Vintage silverware cutlery
Thin white string
A strong stick from the garden
1. Begin by drilling a hole in the handles of your cutlery, very close to the end. Select a very small drill bit for this job, preferably 0.8 mm or smaller. It’s a good idea to secure the cutlery to a work surface using a C-clamp while you drill.
2. Thread a few beads onto a piece of string and tie through the hole in your cutlery. Repeat with remaining cutlery.
3. Attach them to a stick, spaced out evenly, but not too far apart.
4. Tie a long piece of twine to both ends of the stick and hang somewhere close to the house.
