Christmas Spoons

18 Jul

I like these different spoons decorated as Christmas ornaments.  It is pretty easy to find a bargain when buying the spoons.  Dollar store is always a good place to start, and being that it is summer yard sells are a great places to find these treasures.  They don’t have to be in perfect shapes and the paint can hide a lot of flaws.  You could also do this project with little ones.  So follow the links and see if you are inspired.

A couple of things to remember:  This project will be easier if you prime first.  You could add beads to the wire or ribbon when you wrap the spoon to give them a little sparkle. You can drill a hole in the spoon to hang it by. On a metal spoon you can hammer out the bowl for a flat look.  If you don’t paint, but like the look, give the spoon a base coat of paint and add a decal.
