Adding a pop of color to the ends of these mixing spoons is an easy way to add a personal touch to your gift giving, not to mention they're super easy to make! And with so many parties to attend this Holiday season these make great hostess gifts too!
Tape off the ends with painters tape. Up to you how much you want to paint, I did approximately 2 inches. I then took green craft paint and painted the first spoon with the green paint straight from the bottle. The second I added 2 drops of white paint to the green and the third I added about 4 drops of white paint. When adding the white paint to the green I added one drop at a time mixing in between drops.
To complete the gift I tied them together with a dish towel and some festive ribbon!
I recently made a new holiday piece for my mantel using items from JoAnn's.
Using a foam brush I spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the front of the wooden letters, then sprinkled with glitter, shaking off any excess. You can use any color glitter. I used Martha Stewart glitter in Smokey Quartz to match the rest of my decor. These are super easy to make and make a big impact.
This week I'm getting a jump on making place cards for Thanksgiving! Check it out:
I used brown card stock from Michaels and traced a leaf pattern on my phone. If you do a search on google or Pinterest they're are a lot of free leaf templates to choose from.
I then used a fine tip black marker to free hand the names. (I thicken the down pen strokes to get this look) Poked a hole in the end of the leaf using a safety pin, and used embroidery thread to fasten the leaf to the pumpkin stem.
Plates are from Home Goods, napkin from West Elm, and the placemat I DIY'd using garden sisal rope from Home Depot and a glue gun!
