How can I rust stainless steel spoons quickly with NO acid?

Christmas is coming and my sister and I are making each other gifts, We themed it as Salad fingers because we both love salad fingers, she always mocks the saying "I like rusty spoons!" I decided to get her 2 rusty spoons and a recorder that salad finger says. The recorder is set i just need to rust the spoons. We have NO acid. And it needs to be done in about 3 days.

would electrolysis with an increased current decay it in 3 days? i dont know if electrolysis will work on stainless steel......or if the process can be speeded up try heating it up and cooling it off real fast--that ought to mangle it up real fast.....

In 3 days, no chance. If you can put them in a box with rusty nails for 6 month in a humid place, then perhaps.
