Have you heard of the word spooning?  I sure hadn't, not until I came across a craft post here.  I thought this so cute to make for my niece and her husband's upcoming anniversary.  Their last name is Witherspoon and they call each other Mr. and Mrs. Spoon.  How cute is that?

Well, I had to look up the word spooning cause it doesn't sound that good.  But I found out it really doesn't have anything to do with sex .  .  . although it might lead to it.   It's a form of cuddling and anyone can spoon together. You can read more about it online. 

To get started, I already had a shadow box frame, although it wasn't very deep.
I went to a couple of places looking for silver or silver plated spoons and couldn't find any.  Bloggers write about finding tons and tons of these things, but when I try, they're no where to be found .  .  . at least in this area. Anyway, Goodwill had boxes of old stainless steel spoons so I settled for two at 25 cents apiece.  One slightly larger than the other. I spray painted them with bright silver paint so they would look uniform and not slightly used.

This gift was breeze to make.  I took the easy way out and used some stick on white vinyl lettering since the board was a faux black velvet. No stenciling here.

    I put strips of painter's tape on the board so I could line up the letters.
My spacing was off with the 2" letters so I had to make three lines of wording.
      After lining up the lettering, I glued the spoons down using E6000 and allowed to dry overnight.

Since it is a gift I placed the finished piece on a stand to see how it would look.  Marvelous!
Anyone visiting their home would get a kick out of seeing this.  I know I would.

What a great play on words, Mr. & Mrs. Spoon!
This is for you!

Happy Anniversary!!!
Take a little time to enjoy,
 PS: My niece sent me this  Patricia Witherspoon's photo.
