I love finding new uses for common objects (remember the clothespin?) so when I spotted these wooden spoons I knew I had to do something with them. I painted some faces on them and thought they’d be perfect to hand out as favors at a wedding or as a gift to a bridal couple. Especially two foodies! Personalize them to the couple and you’ll be a big hit!
You will need: pencil, wooden cooking spoons, acrylic paints, paintbrush, twine and labels for packaging.
Step 1: Draw your face with a pencil. Keep it simple! For the bride, make a simple collar or necklace. For the groom, draw a necktie.
Step 2: Paint in the pencil lines with acrylics.
Step 3: To make the eyes I used the other end of my paintbrush.
Done! How easy was that?! And so cute! Add on a cute tag with twine and they’re ready to go!
