I thought that would be a perfect piece to go along with what I had in mind for a gift for one of my friends. I already had a cookbook and another kitchen gadget. So, these cute spoons would finish out the gift nicely, I thought.
Well, those cute little spoons were priced as a set of three for $27.
Now, I love this friend. I really think a lot of her. I think she would like and enjoy those cute spoons.
However, my budget just didn't see way for that pricey addition to make it into the gift box.
So, when I was at the local Dollar General the other day, I saw these packages of plain-old wooden spoons. They were priced at four for a dollar. So, I snapped them up. Then, I came home and did some taping.
Just for the record, this cheap blue painter's tape does not like to stick to the
I decided that this was a practice exercise anyway, and just decided to roll with it.
I tried to tape a pattern that would make three sets. I think I got that done, but they all started to run together after a while.
I just used the paint I had on hand - some bottles of acrylic left from another project and some sample pots of Valspar that I got for free at Lowe's.
I'll let you know what I decide and show you a finished product soon!
