SNOWMAN & PUMPKIN WOODEN SPOONS (& Snowman Magnets)


I ran across this great idea over on a fellow bloggers site, Eyeballs by Day, Crafts by Night, and I just couldn't wait to give it a try. Here are mine:



These are going straight to my Peddlers Mall Booth, where I'm sure they will be a best seller!

Here's the before of the plain wooden spoons:
 
 They are a little over a dollar a pack at WalMart for a set of 4.

First, I spray painted half of them a white in the Rust-oleum brand spray paint, the other half an almond color, also from Rust-oleum brand from Walmart. Hint: Lay them on chicken wire if you have it for easy coverage!

Then I added on the faces, one by one, varying each a little bit. I placed stars down the center in place of "buttons" on the snowmen.

And then added some homespun scarfs.

On some I added a cute little jingle bell or other embellishment that I had laying around.

Some I painted "believe" and "faith" and such on a little wood bead that I attached with rusty wire. Just to add a bit of character.

In the last few pics below, I dabbed on a bit of rosey red to their cheeks also.
And here's the after pics:











NOTE
I also added some round magnets on the backs of a few so you can hang them on the refrigerator. 

It's great to hold notes in the winter theme! I grabbed a pack of 52 round ones with strong hold from WalMart for around $3.00. Just glue them on with E-6000 glue and let dry! Strong Hold!

If you are mainly an online shopper for craft supplies, I've gotten some great deals on Amazon too.

See ya'll next time,

Update: 
 Here's the newest Halloween themed spoons I have done so far.


Just kind of go wild with the faces and draw on things you would do to a real pumpkin.
Or like a few I did, write Trick or Treat on them with a pencil and then go back and either paint or use a black marker.
A few bats makes it cute as well.


 To spruce them up, I took some crafters wire and twirled it down their bodies.
And also tied a bit of twine at their necks.




These are for sale in my Booth #555 at the local o-op.
Cost: $1.99 each
