Rue How-To: Glittered Wooden Spoons

So you left a few gifts to the last minute. Meaning, it’s do-or-DIY time. Behold: the glittered wooden mixing spoon. Quick, easy, and personal, it’s every procrastinator’s dream.

Rue How-To: Glittery Wooden Spoons

What you’ll need:

  • Wooden spoon
  • Tape
  • Paintbrush
  • Decoupage glue
  • Glitter
  • Elevated area for spoons to dry
  • Decorative paper for recipe cards
  • Family recipe
  • Twine

How to do it:

  1. Mask the top half of your spoon handle with tape to partition the glittered end.
  2. Brush decoupage glue evenly over the lower half of the handle.
  3. Paint the glue-covered area with your favorite shade of glitter. Remove tape right after painting to ensure the glue and glitter, once dried, aren’t also pulled away.
  4. Place spoon on an elevated area to allow the glittered half to dry. (Great way to put those Rue La La boxes to use.)
  5. Apply a second coat of decoupage glue to seal glitter for use and safe dishwashing.
  6. Attach recipe card to handle with twine. Tip: Use a family recipe to give your gift a more personal touch.
