What You'll Need
Wooden board
Three metal spoons
Three tea lights
Hot glue gun
Paint
Sawtooth hangers (or other mounting hook)
Hammer/nails

How To Make It
1. Paint your wooden board to the desired color and let dry.
2. Flip it over and use a hammer and nails to attach a sawtooth hanger to the top of the backside.
3. Bend your spoons. (Most inexpensive metal spoons will bend with a little effort. If they're not budging, try holding the cup under your foot and pulling up on the handle.)
4. Attach your spoons to the wood with a good amount of hot glue and let the entire thing dry. (Feel free to measure the spoons to an equal length, but eyeballing will work just as well.)
5. Hang it on your wall and add some tea lights. (For safety reasons, you may want to use electric tea lights or hot glue the metal cup to the spoon.) Enjoy!
