A Whimsical Kitchen Project


 
Add a little whimsy to your kitchen with this fun and easy project.
What You need:
Wooden Spoons
Unfinished wooden plaque (from your local craft store)
Varnish and a brush
Wooden Spoons (dollar store)
1 ½ inch thin nails
Wood Glue
Hand Saw
Hanging Bracket
Let’s Make It! Attach the hanging bracket to the upper part of the back of the plaque. Varnish the plaque and let it dry completely. Saw the spoon handles off to about 5 ½ inches in length. On the back of the wooden plaque mark where you would like to place the spoons, hammer in the nails at these spots and flip the plaque over. Position each of the spoons handles over a nail and gently hammer the spoon onto the nail until the handle is almost flush with the plaque. Add some wood glue around the base of the nail and spoon, hammer until flush with the plaque and then wipe away any excess glue. Taa Daa!

*You can also drill holes instead of using nails, then use screws, and drill holes in the spoon handles and screw onto the spoons, if you are handy with power tools.

Seriously such a great idea! It's so cute and functional for all those old wooden spoons I have (the fraying ones cannot be good for my health).

What a cute idea! I'm going to bookmark this for an idea that I was working on - and didn't want to put an actual hook into the wall. This will do perfectly! Thanks so much.
