This is a great way to snazz up your plain wooden spoons! A while back I was browsing the apartment section of ModCloth for things for my new apartment (of course), when I came across the Flock on Wood Spoon. So adorable, right? Well that jogged my memory of a pin I had pinned on Pinterest a long time ago that mentioned using a wood burning tool to create a design on wooden utensils. It just so happens that my mom has a wood burning tool from some project she did years ago, so I decided to burn some spoons!
I bought a bag of 8 wooden utensils at HomeGoods for $3, Googled a few images for pattern inspiration, and made these!
I did the spoon on the left and the spatula first with the really pointy, thin tip, which took longer to do than I was expecting. After that I switched to the rounded, thicker tip and it was a lot easier to use, but didn’t allow me to make as intricate of designs. I also got a little lazy and just started doing random stuff with them, but I really like how they turned out! A few of the spoons I left blank for now. Maybe I’ll burn them later or maybe I’ll try dipping them in paint like House of Earnest’s Dipped Wooden Utensils?
