Kitchen Decorating

Boom Chaka Laka, Chaka Laka, Chaka Laka, Laka BOOM! I am on this odd spoon kick lately. I am not quite sure how to kick it so I decided to share all of the fun things I been doing with them. You remember the other day when I posted this, well before I put up all of my colored nail polish I thought hard about what else I could do with them. I went into a day long daze (crafters you know what this is) and BOOM. This thought happened. Kitchen Decorating 101. Well, not exactly what you see below but the thought of bright, whimsical, retro spoons happened in my noggin. Initially I thought they would look great in a glass jar in the kitchen. I put them in a jar but it was like looking at yourself in the mirror while trying on bathing suits. It worked but didn’t work. Or in my case I have just resorted to the “shirt” on top because I don’t want the sun to burn me. Wink Wink!

Anyways, I grabbed some gold glitter and sprinkled it over my head then the magical thought of a spoon display occurred to me. There you go, now you have my trick on how I create things. Let’s get started!

I am going to be honest, there was no specific pattern involved just pure excitement. I did want them to feel a little tribal | retro | whimsical | happy | colorful and that is exactly what I got. I was not planning on doing a black and white one until I put them together. I needed that to break the colors up, I think that was a smart choice.

What colors will you be using? It would even look great as a whole set in one specific color/design. Now remember I did not coat them with anything because the nail polish gave me a great shiny finish.

I painted a piece of wood white and let that dry over night with the spoons. Once everything is dry you can then glue the spoons to the wood with the glue of your choice.
I made these for decoration purposes.

Big Glittery HUGS from me to YOU!

Today I will show you how to take a boring wooden spoon and give it a new life.  The wooden spoon has been around for a long time but if you want to spice up the decor in your kitchen and “display” your spoons then stick around! While attending CHA, the Craft and Hobby Association trade show this past weekend my friends at Craft Attitude gave me some of their amazing printable film sheets. If you have  not heard of these yet, then now is the time to get crazy. When you see just how these film sheets can do you will flip like a fish in a bowl of kool-aid.

I had never used this product until now and I am still amazed at how much it can do! You can see below just how beautiful they turn out. It’s almost like making your own Washi Tape. I have so many ideas for this product and I can’t wait to start making them all.

I overlapped my designs to give it a more modern look and I love how they are translucent enough to see the sheet behind it. So, when you lay one color over another it creates new FUN colors. You can decorate wooden spoons with any design you like, this is what I love about it!

Below you can get the PDF I made for this project, unless you want to make your own paper. Let’s get started with the tutorial.


For the FULL pdf click HERE. I have enclosed a pdf for each color and one with each strip on it. ENJOY!

Cut your paper into strips.


Measure the paper around your spoon then cut the strip to the right size.


The top layer of paper will peel off really easily. Make sure you stick the shiny side down.


To make sure my strip really stayed in place I sprayed a little adhesive spray to the “not so shiny” side.


Slowly apply your printer film.


Have fun with it and get creative. Remember you can print any image out on this film.
