Christmas Spoons

Day 3: 25 Days of Christmas

Christmas Spoons

 

 

Our third day of our 25 Days of Christmas showcases a perfect gift for the cooks in your life. It is based off of a staple you might have seen so frequently in places like Pinterest, but with our own little spin. These “paint dipped” wooden spoons are so easy to do, but we added a little Christmas spin to it to make it a little extra special.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

  • Wooden spoons (Go to the dollar store, and you will most likely find a pack of 4 or 5 for a dollar!)
  • Paint, assorted colors
  • Small paintbrush
  • Scotch tape
  • Wood engraver (I know, you probably don’t have one, which isn’t a deal breaker. The decals you put on the bowl of the spoon could be hand painted. Just make sure to add your own little details!)

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Use your scotch tape to mark off how high on your spoon’s handle you would like your paint to reach. Make sure to apply your tape cleanly onto the handle, as this will make a clean paint line when you remove it.

 

  • Using a paintbrush, paint on your color of choice onto the handle of the spoon. Set it down on a piece of newspaper, making sure the raise the painted section off of the paper.

 

  • Once the paint is dry, remove the tape.

 

  • Time for the decals! If you don’t have a wood engraver, hand paint any decal you like onto the bowl of the spoon. We went with Christmas, and color coordinated the decals to each spoon. So our red spoon has a candy cane, white a snowflake, etc. You could even monogram your spoons according to who will receive these gifts.

Since I used a wood engraver, I was limited to certain shapes and sizes I could engrave, so you could get even more creative when you are not restricted like I was! If you decide to make this simple gift, show us how you decorated your spoons! Enjoy!

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
    words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I
    thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do
    you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers
