Personalized MINI Spoon Ornaments with Names


I ran across some cute little mini wooden spoons at Walmart recently.
I can't remember the exact price but I think they were just over $2.00 package.

I went ahead and grabbed them not knowing what I'd do with them.
But I've recently made these 
Personalized MINI Spoon Ornaments with Names


 What I did was use a wood burner and engrave each handle with a name.

If you don't have an engraver, you can easily paint each name on by hand!
Or even make cute stamping designs.

Next, I took some bakers twine and tied the bottom of the handle.



Then I took a tiny drill bit and drilled a small hole at the top.
And then attached matching bakers twine to use for hanging.



And here it is hanging up.


I had to hang them up on a primitive tree beside my mini wooden rolling pins
to get a good look at them.



And here is how I packaged them after putting them in a cute, clear cellophane bag with my shop info.

A plain brown bag does the trick.

And do you notice the mini clothespin at the top?
I also engraved that with To: Jayla to use as a keepsake name tag clip.


I think that added a cute touch.

What do you think?

Personalized Ornaments and Keychains


The first day of December here brings new projects for Christmas. 
And I woke early to get a head start on them.

Since time is short, I will just include a few photos of what is keeping me busy today and for the next few weeks.

I hope it may give you some ideas on personalized ornaments you could make.
Not only by just engraving them but by painting.








And I just have to include these little babies feet badge ID clips I've been making.

And these were a few engraved wooden spoons from Halloween I didn't get around to posting.

Personalized Glass Cutting Board


Personalized Glass Cutting Board

Here's a cute idea for a one of a kind kitchen gift.  
My cousin first asked me to make this for her and since then I've made a few more.  It's a very simple but really cute idea  and makes for a great, unique gift.

Simply print out the name you need on a Cricut if you have one, if not you can do a personalized order from eBay or Etsy.  Just make sure you tell them, or make it "mirrored" and the size board you need it for.  This will keep you from making the same mistake I did, lol.

And just simply apply underneath the glass, going in the correct direction.  I had to flip and flop the glass cutting board over so many times, you would not believe.  But once I realized, it was super easy.

Here it is all finished.






Hope ya'll like this. And if you look around in about any Home Goods store, in the kitchen area, you can find the clear glass cutting boards.

Personalized Wooden Spoons



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!
