Beginner to intermediate. Can be done with kids five years and over. Help younger kids with stitching.
Start with a base coat of paint for your home interior design. You can choose to add colour only to certain parts and keep some areas of the spoon in the original wood. Get those little pieces of left-over tape out—it’s a great way to repurpose extra lace or embroidery material you might have at home as you only need small bits for this project. Play around with colours and textures while creating a narrative about each spoon if you are working on this with children. Add a face and an expression to complete the look. Display in a jar or let children use them as puppets for a little play if they can’t let go of them.
