Wood Burned Spoons with NAMES


Hey ya'll!

Today I want to show you some of the
Personalized Wood burned Wooden Spoons I have been busy with.
I've always had a thing for an old crock or pitcher full of wooden spoons in my kitchen.  And now I have an all new way to display them! 


The ideas could be endless.  But for now I am just simply personalizing them with family names.  And as you see below, I add things like "Chef," "Daddy," and "Momma." 

It just gives them that personalized touch that you just do not see anywhere else.


And that is one of the main reasons I love them soooo much!


 Here is one up close.

Super great ideas for a personalized Christmas gift that someone may actually keep.  I know I would!

Hope ya'll enjoyed seeing what I've been up to lately.

I was thinking about maybe pricing these around $5 each? So a family of four would be $20. And I think I would pay that for a personalized gift. 
What about you? Let me know if ya'll think it's too high or somewhat reasonable.

I've just began to list these on eBay along with my jars.
I can't wait to see if they start to sell!

Magnetic MAKEUP Boards


Makeup and Mini Perfume MAGNETIC BOARD

Here's a cute idea I've been seeing on Pinterest lately.
And very simple as a bonus!

I was lucky in having a metal board on hand.  I had a box of metal map signs from my craft booth. I've heard you can also use cookie sheets. Just make sure yours is the kind magnets stick to first.

Here's what I have:

The back looks like this and they already have nail holes for hanging:

First, I wiped down the metal sign with a lil bit of rubbing alcohol and let it dry.
Just to remove any bits of dust and dirt.

Then I picked a color of spray paint.
I choose this deep, gloss purple. Although I struggled with a teal at first. My sister wanted a purple one. So this the color I chose for it:


After letting that dry, we used some E-6000 glue to stick on some light purple sequins on the edges. You can buy bags of sequins in oodles of colors at Walmart in the craft section. And the glue also!

After doing a ton of sequins like this though, I'd recommend using a hot glue gun.

Then, I got some round, strong magnets, found in the craft section at Walmart, and more E-6000 glue.
I glued on the magnets to the little jars and some makeup backs. Let it dry overnight.
For the E-6000 glue I really recommend this.

Below is a pic of it with some mini perfume bottles stuck on.


My board hangs up by the little tiny nail holes in the corners.

WATERMELON SLICE DECORATION


Super easy and cute decoration craft here.  
WATERMELON SLICES 
from wood hunks.

I simply had the idea one day when looking at a stack of wood we have out back.
Here's some of how we stack it.


Well, a couple of the little end pieces were laying on the ground and it looked like a few hunks of watermelon to me.  


So I grabbed it, cleaned it off and painted it up like so.

I just used acrylic craft paint in the craft section of Walmart. And I just used any red and green I had on hand.



And after painting on some red like that, I took a sponge brush and dabbed on the green to the "rime" and had to water it down a it to get it to soak in good enough.




And in the pic, you can see I dabbed on some blackish brown for the seeds and came back in with a touch of white to make them stand out.






As you see, any shape of little hunks of wood will basically do.
Just paint'em up and sit'em on your porch in a cute tray!

Happy Crafting, see ya'll next time,
~Lisa
