This morning’s craft is another quick and easy/dollar store craft. I picked up packages of wooden spoons for just over a dollar for a pack of three!
This would be a great craft to do with the kids, let them personalize their own Gingerbread Men!
I made these ones to add to our Christmas Preserve Baskets, just as a little decoration. I will also be making some Snowman Wooden Spoons later in the week!
The time has come for me to get my butt in gear to get ready for Christmas. In the coming weeks/months, I will be posting both Christmas gifts and Christmas decorations. Hopefully I don’t accidentally give anyone a sneak peak at one of their gifts!!!
I started out, obviously, with some wooden spoons. I base painted these ones brown to start. (You can see I also have the snowmen base painted as well)
I drew on the faces.
And started to paint! I did all the faces, buttons and the “icing” around the face.
And then I did the bits of shading and such that I wanted to add to them.
Next came the sealer. I thought it would be a good idea to put a quick coat of sealer on them. When I did it, I taped a grid across the top of the vase I was using so that they spoons didn’t touch while they were drying.
Here they are after the coat of sealer.
All I had to do now was add a nice bow to the base of the spoon and these are now ready to be a cute addition to our Christmas Preserve Baskets!
