The wooden cutlery in our shop has simply been flying off the shelves this summer! It is simple and stylish just as it is but there are some great idea's out there to pretty-up plain wooden cutlery to make it that bit extra-special.
The lovely Michelle from The Purple Pumkin Blog suggested decorating wooden cutlery with washi tape, glitter and napkins (I can't wait to try the glitter!) and Lucy from the marvellous blog Capture By Lucy gave me the idea of painting the ends of the cutlery.
This morning, armed with three little girls requiring something to keep them busy, I decided to try out dipping the ends of wooden spoons in paint...great idea until I discovered we were very short on paint! Quick improvisation and I collected up all the nail polish from the bedrooms that I could find and we got busy. It was so easy, just a couple of coats of varnish on each side, these are the results!
Boo! - Halloween has not been cancelled! Although traditional Halloween parties and Trick-or-Treating may not be on the agenda for most during this COVID19 pandemic, there are still plenty of ways we can celebrate this special time of year in a way that is safe and that follows social distancing restrictions.
I ordered these and the pastel wooden cutlery to give out to friends at socially-distanced gatherings so that I don’t have to wash up and risk spreading the virus. They are disposable but much more eco friendly than plastic. Ideal.
