Scrap Wood and Spoon Wall Sconces

  • February 12, 2015


One of my favorite looks incorporates rustic wood and aged metal. While brainstorming ideas to lighten and brighten our foyer decor while maintaining some rustic details, I settled on the option of lighting.
Using scrap 1x2's, cut into 10 inch pieces, I created wall plaques by attaching the 10 in pieces side by side with wood glue. Each plaque received a light sanding, and a coat of Dark Walnut stain. I then attached vintage serving spoons, bent at a right angle, to the plaques with hot glue. The serving spoon surface is the perfect size to hold a small battery operated candle. Hung on the wall in our foyer, these wall sconces add just a little bit of sparkly light at night, and charm with their rustic style during the day.
