Crafts from my heart to yours!

Another Quick, Quick $1 Valentine’s Craft!

Wooden Valentine’s Spoon


  • Wooden spoons
  • Trim: torn fabric strips, ribbon, lace, etc.

Also Needed

  • Red & white cardstock scraps
  • Zigzag scissors
  • Scissors
  • Gingerbread paint (FolkArt Cinnamon)
  • Red glitter paint (FolkArt Gems Rubi)
  • Red paint (optional)
  • Cotton swab or paintbrush
  • Mod Podge


I had everything I need to do this craft on-hand leftover from other projects so I did not count them as a cost.  I bought the wooden spoons ages ago for $1 at the Dollar Tree – they still have them.   You can also use any old wooden spoons you no longer need.

  • Wooden spoons, set of 3: $1
  • Trim: on-hand or $1 and up
  • Cardstock scraps: on-hand
  • Gingerbread paint: on-hand
  • Red glitter paint: on-hand
  • Mod Podge: on-hand


  1. Assemble materials
  2. For the gingerbread side paint the back of the spoon with the cinnamon paint.  Paint up the handle to where you plan to tie the trim on.  Let dry.
  3. Cut out rick-rack from white cardstock scraps.  Cut out a folk art type heart from white cardstock scraps.
  4. Glue cardstock pieces to spoon with Mod Podge and then apply a coat over the entire back of the spoon.  Let dry.
  5. Edge the white heart with red glitter paint.
  6. For the red folk art heart side cut a folk art heart that fits the bowl of the spoon from red cardstock scraps.
  7. Glue cardstock heart to spoon with Mod Podge and then apply a coat over the entire bowl of the spoon.  Let dry.
  8. Brush heart with red glitter paint.
  9. Another option is to paint a folk art heart.
  10. Starting at the handle closest to the bowl of the spoon wrap trim around the handle of the spoon in a crisscross pattern for about 2 inches.   Tie off the trim in a bow.  I used white ribbon and a fabric strip torn from red fabric.  I knotted my ends and then tied knots until only short ends of trim remain.


For another $1 craft using materials you have on-hand is the Scrapbook Backed Cookie Cutter Ornament.  This post gives instructions to make the ornaments.


This post shows the ornaments made with Valentine’s cookie cutters in use on a wreath.  I will be posting the instructions for making the foam “cookies” pictured in this post soon.
