Once painted and inscribed with your chosen saying, these painted wooden spoons are not only a perfect decoration, but a perfect gift.

Painted Wooden Spoon

Materials:
– Wooden spoon
– Acrylic-based primer
– Acrylic enamel paint or other waterproof paint
– Paintbrushes
– Marker

Directions:
1. Paint the handle of the wooden spoon with primer and allow to dry.
2. Paint the primed area of the handle in the colour of your choice; let dry.
3. Use a permanent marker (we like fine-tipped ones) to write your saying on the dry handle.

Note: Once primed and painted, these spoons should be not be used for preparation. Try presenting it in a shadow box or with a ribbon tied onto the handle (you may need to drill a hole through it) so it can be hung up in the kitchen.
