Christmas Decorated Wooden Spoons
Although I had intended to make these decorative wooden spoons to add as holiday gift bag toppers, I’m thinking to make another set to hang in the kitchen over Christmas. I had picked up an inexpensive set of wooden spoons from the dollar store but this craft could also be made by upcycling old wooden spoons you may no longer use.

With so many beautiful paper napkins at the store, we’ve really been enjoying our decoupage crafts this year. Crafts like this holiday mason jar cardinal container and this merry and bright Christmas sign were both made using pretty paper napkins.
This Christmas craft was part of a series of Facebook Live videos all about holiday crafting. You can check out the video for making these wooden spoons here. We also made this cedar plank winter welcome sign, this upcycled picture frame decor, and this adorable penguin pebble art during other Facebook Live videos.

How to Decorate Wooden Spoons for Christmas
Paint the wooden spoons with white paint and let them dry.
Using the paint marker in gold, write some festive greeting or a date on the spoon and let it dry completely.
Separate the layers of paper napkin to use only the top printed layer to decoupage and throw away the other layers. Cut a strip off the napkin long and wide enough to cover the spoon handle.
Next, using the mod podge, paint the spoon handle and wrap the napkin around it, pressing the napkin down gently to squeeze out any excess glue along the edges. Let the Mod Podge dry completely.
Take a black matte eyelet and ‘screw’ it into the top of the spoon.
Embellishing the Wooden Spoon
Using some fine guage floral wire attach some other embellishments to the handle, things like Christmas charms, bells and faux greenery.
Lastly, tie a bow and using the craft wire, attach it to the handle of the spoon.
You can add other embellishments to the wooden spoons if you have them or even leave them plain. We think they’ll make a really cute and unexected gift bag topper for the holidays. What do you think?
