Wooden Spoon Christmas Light Garland

The Tiny Funnel

Disposable wood spoons- these are from Amazon- 100/pk. for $7.29
Acrylic paint
Yarn needle
White glue
Small brush

On a protected surface, paint the back of the spoon bowl (use the handle to hold the spoon).
Set aside and let dry completely.

Gently cut the handles off of the bowls with a pair of kitchen scissors; leave about 3/8” to 1/2“ uncut on top of the spoon bowl.
I actually found it easier to use regular scissors- less cracking.

Add a dab of glue to the painted front top edge.

Wrap yarn around the edge and tie it off in back.

Allow the glue to completely dry.

String the “lights” by running a needle threaded with yarn through the back of the wrapped yarn on each spoon.

The Edge of December

The Tiny Funnel
I've been working quite bit this November (and had no time to post) but there is a big blank work horizon in December with lots of time to make Christmas crafts and snacks. This little cake house is what I'm working on this week---here at the edge of December.
Goodbye November.
