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.
