One of the best ways to utilise old spoons and forks is to use them to make a wall clock for your kitchen. To go about it, take a flat-back (round or rectangular) clock and using some glue, paste the spoons and forks at equal distance. To make it even funkier, you can also try using spatulas and soup ladles.
