DIY Craft: Floral Spoons
I have a pretty DIY craft to share with those of you that love floral decor! This involves making beautiful spoons that can be used for serving salt and sugar. Do you like to entertain? Then this DIY craft is for you! You only need a few simple supplies to transform spoons from boring plastic to beautiful floral decor. You will love this…
I was at my local craft store recently and I stumbled upon these neat plastic spoons. They can be used once and thrown away (meaning that they are disposable) OR you can reuse them. I love options like that! The pretty mint color was calling my name over in the clearance isle where I picked these cute spoons up! Using just a couple of simple materials that I also bought at the craft store, I quickly transformed these plastic spoons into fun and gorgeous salt and sugar spoons! Why salt and sugar? Well, you don’t want to get these babies wet. The are decorated with paper after all:) So, dipping them into salt and sugar is the perfect use for these decorative spoons.
To get started here are the simple materials that you will need.
A Thin Piece of Floral Scrapbook Paper
Glossy Finish Mod Podge
Paint Brush (well, I used a sponge:)
Next, you follow these quick and easy steps for assembling your floral spoons:
Cut the paper so that it will fit the length and circumference of the spoon.
Apply a layer of Mod Podge over the spoon handle
Apply the paper to the spoon, smoothing out bubbles and sealing the edges
Apply another layer of Mod Podge over the paper and allow it to dry.
Isn’t this a fun DIY craft? I just love my new floral spoons! They are perfect for scooping out small servings of salt or sugar (in chic labeled jars of course…..love!)
