Crafts from my heart to yours!

Mini Wooden Valentine’s Spoons


Mini Wooden Valentine’s Spoons

Make several of these little cuties for a Baking Wreath or to hang on a seasonal tree for Valentine’s Day or Christmas.  They are very easy to make and super inexpensive too!
Materials

  • Wooden ice cream spoons
  • Cardstock scraps
  • Metal ornament hanger

Also needed

  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Permanent markers
  • Brown colored pencil or marker
  • Cotton swabs or paint brush
  • 3/8ths inch heart punch

Costs

I bought some ice cream sticks in a bundle of arts & crafts supplies for $1 so maybe it cost me 15₵ for 25.  The paint, cardstock scraps, Mod Podge, and fabric were leftover from another project.  So basically this was a free craft for me.

Instructions

Photo 1: Assemble materials. Punch hearts.

Photo 2: Draw a spoon pattern on the ice cream stick lightly with a brown colored pencil..

Photo 3: Begin cutting the handle out by making a horizontal cut on each side of the ice cream stick where the “handle” begins. Then cut vertically on each side down to the horizontal cuts.

Photo 4: Sand smooth CAREFULLY. This wood splinters very easily. Watch out!

Photo 6: Tie ribbon around the bottom of the handle. Insert metal ornament hanger (or short piece of wire) before pulling tight. May also glue a magnet to the back of the ornament instead of hanging it on a tree.

Photo 7: Tie ribbon into a bow. Push the bow up a lttle on the spoon handle and apply a little glue. Pull the bow back down and allow to dry. Hang on tree or wreath.
