|CREATE|painted wooden spoons

A little quick make for you today, these 'painted' wooden spoons are cheap, quick and easy and would make great Christmas gifts.

I ordered this pack of 5 wooden spoons from ebay, they were £1.50 for 5, they are not great but I'm on the lookout for some more and will mix these with some better quality ones.  The paints were all testers I had already, you could even use the kids poster paints if you like.

Using washi tape, create a masked area to be painted.

Using a clean paintbrush, paint the end of the spoon.

Leave to dry, mine took about an hour to completely dry.

Carefully remove the washi tape, you are left with a lovely crisp edge.

Now, raid your nail kit and find some clear nail varnish that you never use.

Cover the paint with varnish to provide a seal.
There you have them, pretty wooden spoons, which can be created for each recipient.  An older tween or a teen would be able to do these, no trouble so they would make lovely Christmas gifts or even for Grandparents day on 7th September.
I'm going to be making some more of these and will be back with a pretty packaging idea for Christmas. Lx

    1. Thanks Becky, that's a great idea. I'm really looking forward to adding mine to little packages made with bargains I find!!
