This idea is certainly not new with me. I've seen it around, however, I would like to think I personalized it and improved it.
In many examples, I've seen the silverware is glued to the board. I screwed it in for durability.
How I made these:
First, you need to flatten your serving spoons. Many places suggest placing them between towels and hammering them flat. I have arthritis in my hands and that did not work for me. Fortunately, my husband is an engineer who works for a company that does a lot of its own machining. I went to his work after hours with a bag full of silverware and flattened it. :)
Second, you will want to paint your boards. I distressed mine because I like distressed. Do whatever tickles your fancy.
You will want to bend your spoon before attaching it to board. Holding the cup of the spoon on the edge of a table and bending the handle around the table's edge worked well for me.
Now here is why serving spoons are nice. They come with slots in them. The slots make built in holes for screws (plus, I think they are prettier!!). Screw your spoon to the board.
Add a hanger to the back for hanging the board on your wall and you are done.
