I've been picking up old tarnished and mismatched flatware from flea markets and yard sales for years; sometimes one piece at a time and sometimes in bulk. The stainless steel knife blades are too hard for stamping, so most of them have been getting bundled up and resold until I finally figured out a way to repurpose them.
The inside is hollow which makes these light enough to hang on the tree, or to hang around just about anywhere.
I drilled a small hole about 1/8" from the top, glued some silver glitter around the top to soften the cut, added a jump ring, and tied on a ribbon.
A beaded angel hangs from the jump ring.

I made the flower charm by flattening the aluminum top of a glass ornament, then I glued a button and lavender rhinestone on top. I have several more waiting to be decorated for any season or occasion...they make sweet little bud vases too.
