Altered Spoons – Cobwebs Spoonie Spoons

In my last post I told The Story of the Spoons, which, if you missed it, or would like a refresh of the story,  you can find HERE (it will open up in a new window for you).

I shared a glimpse, at the end of The Spoon Story, of my own personal spoons which related to me and my own story, and promised that I would share each of the spoons in the photograph with you in a separate blog post — and here I am, as promised, sharing my spoons.

Cobwebs own Spoons

In the photograph above, I’ve numbered each spoon so that you can check it against which spoon you’re reading about and looking at.  There are 12 (twelve) spoons in total and each one is decorated differently than any other in the set, and each of them has a meaning to me.  I’ll give a little explanation of each spoon as I share them.  Shall we get on with it?


The photo on the left shows spoon 1 and a spoon before I’ve given it a make-over.  (The purple rule at the bottom is showing measurements in centimetres).

The close up photo on the right, is the best one out of about ten that I took.  I think it’s the glitter which made this spoon difficult for the camera to know where to focus.  All that twinkling.

The spoon was coloured using Alcohol Inks, then the bowl of the spoon was treated to three different colours of glitter, and I would like to believe it looks like a magical Fairy sky would look at Sunset, with twinkles of many colours.  The crescent moon is a Tibetan Silver charm, of which:-  the moon part I covered in very fine silver glitter dust.  The bright yellow/gold, is a star.  And the Fairy Wings were given a white glitter covering.


Spoon 2.  This second spoon talks of my love of Poppies. 

My mother grew some spectacular Poppies in her garden, and after she passed, Mr.Cobs collected the dried out Poppy heads so that I could grow her Poppies in our garden.  And then, after we sold our old cottage a few years ago, Mr.Cobs made sure that I had a plentiful supply of Poppy seeds from dried out Poppy heads to take 200 miles to our new cottage and we began to grow those Poppies all over again in our new garden, here in ‘Cobweb Cottage’.

The handle of the spoon is painted in the Poppies and the colours of them – red, black and yellow – using alcohol inks.  The Poppy in the bowl of the spoon is decoupaged, using printed tissue paper and Modge Podge.  The plant pot on the bowl of the spoon which the poppy is ‘growing’ out of, was made by me from clay and I ‘mossed’ it up a little to give it a bit of texture.


Spoon 3:  Spoon three is about being a Spoonie – as you might have guessed by the teeny tiny spoon on the handle.  I talked about and explained what being a Spoonie was in my last post:  The Story of the Spoons (link supplied in the first paragraph of this post).  The colours of the spoon don’t quite show up as the true colours – but they represent pain, discomfort, golden days of fabulousness, and a touch of black because pain can be a real meanie.  The teeny tiny spoon on the handle basically tells you what the tea-spoon is about.  Again, the colour on the spoon are made using alcohol inks.


Spoon 4 is Butterflies.  I love butterflies.  They have a love of life which shows itself in the way they get so excited when they’re flying.  It’s as if, with every flap of their wings, they’re mind-blowing, excitedly saying, over and over,  “I’m alive!  I’m Alive!  I’M ALIVE!”.

I think it was my very first visit to a Butterfly Farm many years ago, which sealed the deal for me regarding butterflies.  I never knew there were SO many  truly  AMAZING  species of butterflies in the world,  and … I found out on that visit, that some butterflies love painted toe nails!!   One butterfly kept me captive, sat on a bench, with my leg stretched out, while it investigated the pinky red nail polish which I had on my toes.  I think it was at that moment that my heart was stolen by that butterfly and I have an allegiance to them for ever more.

Spoon 4 was created using Alcohol Inks,  and I decoupaged the bowl of the spoon.  The silver butterfly is a Tibetan silver charm, and I added those teeny tiny balls, in three colours.  There’s a name for those teeny tiny balls, and right at this moment of typing I cannot remember what the dickens they’re called.  (sigh – brain fog). If any of you can remember, do give my brain a prod in a comment, and I’ll add it here.  (Big Thank You in advance!)

MICRO BEADS!!!  They’re called Micro Beads!   I would dearly love to tell you that my brain started working again, but I won’t tell fibs.  It was the FANTABULOUS  BEVERLY PARKISON from More Ink Please who has a fully working brain and instantly knew what these brilliant beads are called.  Thank you Bev!  ❤


Spoon 5  . .  awww, I love, love, love this spoon.  It’s WAY prettier and filled with heaps more magic, than the photo’s show it to be.  It’s what I think a Galaxy should look like.  And … Magic.  I reckon every magic spell should work only after you’ve waved your wand and a flash of magic happens in the colours and ‘amazingness’ of that spoon.

The colours are all made using alcohol inks,  and I then added different types of glitters and teeny, tiny sequins to, and finished it off with some flat backed pearls on the handle.

SPOONs  6  and  7

Spoon 6  (above)  – is one of a pair.  There’s Mr.Bear (as seen on Spoon 6 above),  and there is a Mrs.Bear which is . . .  SPOON 7 (below)

These bear spoons talk about my affection for Teddy Bears.  Not all of them, but there are some bears which ‘speak’ to me and it’s those bears which I fall in love with.  I don’t collect bears though.

I still have my very first Teddy Bear which was given to me not long after I was born, and is actually older than me – (so there IS something which is older than dirt then!).  As a child I loved that bear so much and he went everywhere with me.  Many years have passed since I arrived on this planet, and I still love him (‘Teddy’ – his name is simply ‘Teddy’)  just as much now,  and there are times that I will pick him up and give him a hug – just like I used to all those years ago.

I did have another bear, bought as a Christmas gift by Mr.Cobs, some years ago.  However, one incredible little boy,  Grandson: Little Cobs,  fell in love with him and,  following an urgent phone call one night from his mummy,  I ended up driving like a speed demon, carrying a certain bear on board, to Daughter (No.2) and Son-in-laws house and taking that bear to a sobbing Little Cobs.  He apparently couldn’t continue in life without it.  Being 2 years old, as he was at the time,  is so tough.  😉

Mr and Mrs. Bear spoons were both made using alcohol inks and decoupaged with bear patterned tissue paper, and finally, some of those tiny beads (which I still can’t remember the name of).   amended to add:  They’re called Micro Beads – thank you Beverly Parkison of More Ink Please, for your brain power!


Spoon 8

Spoon 8 . . . tells of my incredulous awe of Dragonflies.  I  LOVE them! They’re the most astonishing, magical little creatures,  made by One who knows more than any artist will ever know.

Dragonfly’s are incredible insects and I am convinced that they’re magical beasts made for fairyland flight.  (hey, Goblins and the like, who have no wings,  have to get around somehow!)

Alcohol Inks were used to create the magical colours to spoon 8.


Spoon 9 . . .  kind of speaks for itself.  It has a Cobweb (guess why) on the handle, and a tiny handmade (by me) Fairy House nestled in the bowl of the spoon.

I couldn’t get all the colours to shown up in the photo’s, but there’s blue, green, red, yellow, and peach – all of which were obtained using Alcohol Inks.  The bowl of the spoon is decoupaged in tissue and the tiny Fairy Home is finally attached to the bowl.


Spoon 10 . . . well there had to be a ‘loving spoon’  somewhere in the mix,  because ‘love’ is what I’m all about!  Again, this spoon has some really beautiful colours to the handle, and I love the way the Alcohol Inks blended together in the forming of the pattern down the handle.

The bowl of the spoon was decoupaged with tissue, and I added a wiggly line of three different colours of glitter all around the edge of the spoon.  Finally, I fixed the pink gemstone heart, set in a rose gold colour metal bezel, to the centre of the bowl, added two gems to the handle and VOILA!  Spoon 10 was complete.


Spoon 11 is another spoon which features a Dragonfly.  But this one is flying ….and there’s a story behind it:

I once captured a dragonflywell … I’m not really sure I ‘captured’ it or if it simply wanted me to share its beauty. . . .

It landed on the windowsill outside the dining room window, and I put my hand slowly and carefully next to it as you would if you wanted a bird to step onto your hand.  The dragonfly did that very thing, and I then got Mr.Cobs to put some leaves into a large round glass vase thing.  I offered up the big glass bowl/vase to the dragonfly and . . .  he walked in!!!  (The dragonfly walked in, not Mr.Cobs! eeek! lol).

I knew that Daughter No.2 would have loved to have seen it, but she was only (around) 8 years old at the time, and it was a school day  . . .  the school was only across the road. . .  and I was known at the school as I did some voluntary teaching there with children who had learning difficulties,  . . . so  . . .  I walked the glass vase/bowl over the road to the school, knocked on the classroom door and spoke to the teacher, showing her what I’d got.  She was thrilled to bits, and asked if perhaps I would leave it with them for the afternoon.  I did …. and then when I collected daughter No.2 at the end of the day I took the vase/bowl outside and we released the dragonfly together.  He took off and we watched him until we could see him no more.

That Dragonfly put a memory in my heart so strong and so magical, that I simply had to dedicate a spoon to it.

And finally . . . 


Spoon 12. . .    the final spoon in the set of twelve spoons, and is a celebration of my love of Pearls.  I have long strings of pearls, short sets of pearls;  medium lengths of Pearls.   One strand, two strands, three strands and four strands.

I have my Grandmothers Pearls (which I got married in, despite everyone telling me that it was bad luck to wear pearls on your Wedding Day).  I’ve got Pearl Earrings – drops, studs and clips, and pearls in different colours.  I have rings with pearls in them – my oldest is a Pearl and Ruby ring bought for me for Mothers Day when our girls were little.

And I have a brand new set of Pearls, shorter than my smallest set, but they’re BIG pearls and the lustre is like they’ve been dusted in Fairy Dust.  They were bought for me as an early Christmas Present, last month.  I saw them, fell in loooooooove with them, and then discovered that they were (just for ten days) on sale at 50% off!  BARGAIN OF THE YEAR!  Mr.Cobs said ‘yes’ straight away when I mentioned them to him, and so the deal was done.

I only have one set of ‘pretend’ pearls – which I wear when I’m with Little Cobs.  Not saying that he would break them – but I would cry a lot less about those being broken than I would about any of my other pearls being broken.

BIG TIP OF THE DAY .. for all you fellow necklace of any sort wearers:  If ever you break your string of beads or pearls, and A) can’t get them re-strung for whatever reason;  and  B) don’t have the special beading string to re-string them with;  then you can use the second best thing….  Dental Floss to re-string them yourself!

Yes, I kid ye not.  Dental floss is really strong and thin enough to go through a bead/pearl and hold a whole length of beads/pearls.

And that’s it.  Cobs Spoons because she’s a spoonie.  (again, if you don’t know what that is, see the link at the top of this post and you’ll be able to read).

continuation of The Spoon Story Cobwebs Spoons

Of course …  you don’t have to be a Spoonie to have a set of decorated spoons.  You could have a set just to celebrate who you are.  Or maybe tell a story which is a favourite of yours or someone elses:   Maybe Christmas Bear Spoons?:  Night Before Christmas Spoons?:  Hungry Caterpillar Spoons?:  Harry Potter Spoons:  Wuthering Heights Spoons?:  Apostle Spoons?  – or any thing,  any person,  any story etc etc which means something to you.

You could make one, two, three or as many spoons as you would like, to keep or to give as a gift to someone else.  For a child.  A Wedding Couple.  Anniversary.  Birthday (maybe even give one each year).  Easter.  Christmas.   Spoons in a theme – cats;  dogs;  birds;  cars; fancy handbags;  expensive shoes;  etc.  A spoon for a nurse, your doctor, your childs teachers.  ANYONE.  Obviously, if it’s a gift you’re going to want to present it nicely,  simply wrapped in beautiful tissue and a ribbon.  But it would make such a great gift and because you were making it for a particular person, for a particular reason, it would be personal, and how much more perfect could that be?!!

Do let me know if you feel inspired to make a spoon or two.  You don’t have to spend tons of money.  Just some Tissue Paper, some Modge Podge,  maybe a little glitter or a small decoration (try looking for junk jewellery at your charity shop which  you can break apart and use some of the elements from), and that could be all you need!  Obviously you can get as decorative as you like.  But these metal spoons are a really easy project to make.  Even a total non-crafter could make these.  Truthfully.

Thank you so much for coming and spending some time with me.  It’s great to have your company. 

Wishing you a blessed rest of your day, and a truly fabulous new week . . .

Hello. I'm 'Cobwebs'. I live in a wee little cottage in the South of England, aptly called Cobweb Cottage. This little dwelling really is a cobweb factory. Not inside (well, occasionally) - but outside - flipping heck! This information should give you a clue as to why my blog is called The Art of Cobwebs aka: The Cobweborium Emporium. I've been arty and crafty from a very young age, and although my crafts have sometimes turned a corner and taken me in another direction, I've always crafted in some way, shape or form. One day, in the blink of an eye, life changed somewhat for me and the consequences were many. I had to find a new way of being 'artistic'. Card making; scrap-booking; producing ATC's and ACEO's; needle felting; Polymer clay; painting- but in a more relaxed style than I had before, and sewing, - are all things which I visit, as and when life allows. I've fairy recently become a Textile Artist and am enjoying this new creative outlet very much as it offers me so much scope for letting my imagination run through a grassy field and feel the wind in my hair - (mentally, of course). I love to create. To make things. I truthfully believe that the best gifts in the world are those in which you've given your time, rather than your cash. Thank you so much for visiting. Please visit my blog (link below) and have a look around. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy, even if it's only a handful of jokes! (yes, seriously - there really are jokes!) Wishing you a truly blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. <3

  1. Oh Cobs!!! I love your spoons. I really grinned about the bear spoons. I love the fact you still have your teddy bear even though he is older than dirt. I will not tell Chicken Granddad that; as his mom threw his away while we were on our honeymoon 38 years ago. I am not totally sure he has yet forgiven her on that one! He looks pained when that subject comes up.
    I do really need to give this a try as I have a lot of spoons from a box of “junk” that I somehow wound up with years ago. If I do I will post a picture for you to see!

    1. Ohhh that would be BRILLIANT Chicken!
      It really is truthfully as easy as 1.2.3. You won’t believe how simple it is when you begin.

      There is going to be another project with spoons, coming soon … but that project will be TOTALLY different from this one. However … I think you’ll like it. 🙂

      Poor Chicken Grandad and the loss of his Bear. I really feel for him, as I know how upset I would be if my bear went missing. There are things which got given away to the Charity Shop before we moved, and things which got broken in the move, and 7 years on, I still can’t come to terms with not having them anymore. Why is that I wonder? Normally I’m such a ‘Let it Go’ kind of person . . . but as I got past 21 years old, things have become more and more important to me, and these little lost things from the past are some of those things.

      Aren’t we strange creatures, us humans? lol.

      I shall be over to your blog soon …. I’m on a mission tonight to try and catch up with as many blogs as I possibly can, before the energy runs out! I’m so far behind that it’s beginning to upset me now, and I know that it’s offending some folks, so I’m a Woman on a Mission!

      See you on your blog soon!
      Love you oodles Chicken. ~ Cobs. xxx

  4. Those beautiful decorated spoons are the pearls of your world, so magical, so inspiring and each one made me smile. Thank you for sharing them and yes I do feel like I want to rush out and make some for myself! Love what alcohol ink can do, it is something I keep meaning to invest in and just haven’t quite taken the leap yet! Need to use up all those other leaps I have taken!! Hugs 🙂 x

    1. Hello lovely Kim 🙂
      Aww it’s great to see you.
      I’m so gladdened that you like the spoons, and especially thrilled that you feel inspired to go and make some for yourself.

      They really are very easy to make. You don’t have to invest in the Alcohol Inks if you want to give a bit of Altered Spoon Art a try first Kim. You could simply decoupage and then decorate a whole spoon without using the inks at all. It’s only because I have the inks and I just fancied a bit of playing with them, that I ended up making all my spoons using the Alcohol Inks on at least the handles. But decoupage would work just as easily. (And a lot less messy!)

      But … if you decide to go and buy a selection of inks, make sure you use some gloves (I buy those boxes of latex gloves – use and then throw away). Because otherwise your fingers will get stained with the Alcohol Inks. Not for days on end … but some of the colours will stain for about 24/36 hours – and if you need to be somewhere where you have REALLY clean hands, then best use some gloves.

      Get some cheap cosmetic sponges too, Kim. I buy mine from either B&M Stores, or from Poundland. A bag of mixed shaped cosmetic sponges for either 99p or £1. They work brilliantly for Alcohol Inks. But again … use and throw away. It’s not worth keeping them.

      Aw do let me know if you have a play. I would love to see the results. (I bet you find it’s a lot easier than you’re currently thinking it will be. Truthfully, cross my heart, easy peasy!),

      Thank you so much for coming Kim. Love seeing you.

The alcohol inks are definitely on my hit list as I would like to have a go with the jupo card too, so you may be responsible for a crafty spend, (not that l need any reason to do that lol). All in the search of crafty heaven of course. Hugs xx

    I am not good at crafts of any sort, but I did think of something I’d like to do. I’d like to think of how I would decorate spoons to reflect my life. We have busy times coming up with lots of house guests, so I might not get to this any time soon. I’ll keep it in the back of my mind, though.

      Well if you ever actually sit down and enjoy yourself by getting a little creative with a spoon or two, I would absolutely love to see the results of your efforts. I think you’d be surprised at how easy you’d find this was.

      Someone who I think might really enjoy this craft is Mr.Logan. Sleeves rolled up, and some paper covering the table …. I reckon he’d really get into it Anne!

      Thank you so much for coming for a visit. I so love to see you.

      1. Logan’s mother is an artist. I don’t know that she does artistic things with her son, but I suspect she does. I don’t have any craft supplies. To tell the truth, I don’t want any! I have shelves of music scores that I haven’t touched in ages, and that would be my first love of things involving my fingers. I am simply content to admire your talent and the beautiful things you create.

        Hope you are having a blessed day.

      Aww, I’m glad you like the spoons.
      Sadly, no, these can’t be used in a sugar dish. They’re just for display.

      But … if you wanted to make yourself a prettier spoon for your sugar dish, I highly recommend Pebeo Paints. Pebeo do various different paints for different things and surfaces. You’ll only have to Google and you’ll be given the answer of what particular Pebeo paint you need for the surface you’re going to put it on.

      They really are great paints. I highly recommend them!

  10. Oh these are awesome! I love the stories behind each and everyone of them! They are all so special in their own way. I, too, love butterflies and dragonflies! We get quite a few in our back yard in the summer months. I love to watch them just flittering (is that a word?) by or sitting a moment on the fence just to check things out. I was told some time ago that when you see a butterfly that it is really a loved one that has passed just coming by to check on you. I loved that thought, and every time I see a butterfly, a lost loved one does seem to come to mind. Funny how that works. Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

    1. Hello fabulous Nancee! 🙂
      Aw, it’s great to see you my lovely blogging friend.

      ‘Flittering’ … yep, it’s a word! Well …. I know ‘flitter’ is a word, so flittering has to be, … if it isn’t, then it is now because you and I both use it, so therefore, by common usage – I declare it’s a word! There. sealed in stone. Well … in pixels, at any rate. lol).

      I’m filled with happy bubbles that you like the spoons, and also like the stories and reasons behind them. Bless your beautiful heart. ❤

      With regard to Butterflies and you saying that you learnt some time ago that the story was that when you see a butterfly, it's really a loved one that has passed, coming for a visit, to check on you

      Well this is going to bring you out in fun bumps:-
      Daughter No.2 was very, very close to my mother – her grandmother. They were like a small gang of naughty when they were together, and when sat together watching a film or something of interest on TV, you could walk into the room and actually feel the love in that room shared between them.

      Sadly, my mother passed away, unexpectedly. Both myself and daughter No.2 were with her when she passed, peacefully, in hospital, almost 15 years ago. The loss of her adored Grandma hit D.#2 badly and she’s never really come to terms with that loss.

      Well . . . when D.2 got married nearly 9 years ago, the day before the wedding I sat in the bedroom and ‘spoke’ to my mum, asking her to visit the wedding, and show up as a white butterfly.

      Guess what flew into the church the following day!! Then later, at the outdoors picnic reception, a white butterfly came and stayed, fluttering from place to place, flower to flower, for aaaages.

      I could have cried with joy about this.

      (If I told you what I found on the photographs that I took that day, you’d get a GREAT BIG goosebumps moment! – but I’ll leave that for another day).

      So .. I’m with you all the way with the butterflies theory. I too am a believer.

      Aww, thanks so much for coming Nancee. Love seeing you here, and chatting with you is always such a joy.

      You sound busy, busy, busy … which is wonderful because it not only lifts the spirit, it also stops days from dragging along .. AND …. it gives plenty of opportunities for photographs and coming to share your results – which, as you know, is something I love to read and see! 🙂

      Thanks for visiting Tam. It’s truly lovely to see you.
      Sending much love ~ Cobs. xxx

        1. Sending love to you Tam. Don’t over-push yourself my lovely friend. Remember that in everything that needs to be done, it’s you that’s the important ‘bit’. Without you, nothing gets done. So pace yourself, Missy!
