If you’re looking for a fun and personalized gift idea, I’ve got one for you. I loved the idea of making personalized wooden spoons for my girlfriends and pairing it with homemade spoon & board butter.
The personalized possibilities are endless with it comes to this crafts. I made a festive Christmas spoon for myself. I deserve a gift too sometimes. ;)
You can get as creative as you want with endless color combinations.
Tape off borders where you want paint/glitter to start and end – then paint your color of choice. Allow it to dry before adding another layer of paint. Depending on how opaque the paint is, apply as many coats as necessary.
Allow paint/glitter to completely dry before taping off for second color.
Once done, brush on a coat of sealer. Allow to dry and brush on a second coat. If using glitter, you might want to do two to three coats.
*Wooden utensils really shouldn’t be run in a dishwasher, just a little reminder that these spoons are HAND WASH ONLY.
What you’ll need to get started:
paint brush or foam brush
fine glitter, if using
Decoupage glue that’s water resistant with a glossy finish (this is used as a sealer)
