Wood Burned Spoons
I had a deliciously unexpected day home from work last week, and since the weather was cold and rainy, it was a perfect day to chill inside. I adore days that I can just do whatever I want around the house, and this was a pretty good one! I used leftover Easter ham to make some homemade ham and bean soup and broke out my wood burning tool to work on a project that I've had on my mind for months....
I actually tried these out right after I got my wood burner for Christmas, but I hadn't quite gotten the hang of the tool yet, and that batch didn't turn out to be as pretty as I had hoped. Still, I'll admit that even my less-than-perfect spoons jazz up our utensil drawer nicely and I tend to reach for them far more often than the plain spoons beside them.
I guess they make me feel fancy :)
But this batch turned out to be much better than my first. Here are some of my favorites....
Wouldn't these make a fun little gift? Especially tucked into a fun dishtowel and tied them up with a bright ribbon.
I'm thinking they'd be a great housewarming or hostess gift....
...now who wants to throw a party so I can bring you some?!
