Painted Wood Spoons Homemade Gift Idea for Mom

I love painting different surfaces, and I found a pack of 5 wood spoons for a dollar at my local Dollar Tree store recently, I knew I could transform them into something special! I love how these one-of-a-kind Valentine inspired spoons turned out, and paired with a pretty hand towel, they make the perfect homemade gift idea for MOM! This would be perfect for a Valentine’s gift or a Mother’s Day gift – don’t you agree?

Here is what I used to make these cute pink and red striped spoons:

How to make a valentines painted wood spoon gift

First I put a stripe of painters tape at the end of the stem of each spoon. Then I painted the whole spoon stem pink and let dry completely.

Then I put painters tape stripes, about an 1″ apart from each other, down the pink stems. I painted them red and let dry. When I removed the tape stripes, it revealed a pair of pretty pink and red striped wood spoons.

Then I used one package of my sugru, split it in half and molded them into two circular balls. I attached it to the end of each stem and attached my wood hearts on top. The sugru dries hard, permanent, and water resistant – just like silicone.

    Can you buy the Sugru at Michaels or do you order it from Amazon?

      I haven’t seen it at Michaels yet. Your best bet is to order off of Amazon.
