How To Stamp Spoons

With premium metal stamps, you can actually stamp messages onto stainless steel spoons! I've been stamping for a few years and finally found a set that will do the job. Stamp love notes for your spouse's morning coffee or for your kids' breakfast. Stainless steel spoons are about $1 - making for an inexpensive craft once you invest in a stamp set! Stamping is easy and just takes a bit of practice, but I've got a whole post full of tips to help you fast-track your precision, and tell you what to splurge on and what you DON'T need to invest in.
Love notes on spoons for my husband's morning coffee!
What you will need: a stamp set that can hold up to stainless steel, a bench block and hammer, tape, inexpensive or thrifted spoons, and optionally a non-toxic permanent marker.
Stamping just takes practice! One tip: use masking tape to line up your letters for more even impressions.

    Have you stamped silverplate flatware? I'm interested in trying that. The vintage flatware has some really beautiful patterns.

    I think that these spoons are so cute! I love the idea of the metal stamping project for them. I feel like I would mess this one up and ruin the shape of the spoon or something like that. I would go see a professional to get it done. But I think that the overall effect and end result of the project is so fun.

  • Thanks for this great info! I have wanted to try, but hadn't, now with your expertise, I have a better shot at being successful instead of frustrated! Many thanks! 🤗
