Wood burned dipped kitchen spoons
We are in the process of redecorating the kitchen. We have repainted the walls, and refinished the counters (that super fun tutorial will be coming soon). I’m working on staining the cabinets, and then we’ll add a backsplash. Lots of fun changes on a super tight budget. I can’t wait to show you! Part of the fun in redoing the kitchen has been the fun accessories I’m adding to go with the brand new look! One of my favorites so far have been these wood burned dipped kitchen spoons! I seriously love how they turned out.

Wood burning is one of my favorite crafts right now. There is just something so relaxing about it. It’s really just like drawing, but you’re permanently etching your art work into a wood surface. I use my wood burner so often lately that we have a running joke about my Eau De Parfum Campfire. And dipped kitchen spoons are totally in.
It’s so simple to do. I found this bamboo spoon set at Ross for $4! You can find a set just like it ( here ) if you don’t have a Ross or your store doesn’t have spoons.
Using a pencil, draw your design on the spoon. I pretty much just doodled. Make it personal, add the first letter of your last name, or cute phrases like “spoon me” anything you like.
Then burn it into the spoon with your wood burner. Just slowly trace the pencil design. Slow and even pressure is the key.
When the wood burning is finished, add a strip of painters tape around the spoon where you want your dipped paint line to come to, then paint the spoon handle to the tape. I used my favorite Chalky Finish paint in “Treasure”
You can seal your awesome new spoons with Dishwasher safe mod podge and then have functional spoons, or you just keep them for decoration. However you seal them, I would recommend hand washing rather than using the dishwasher. While the wood burning is permanent, the paint could wash away if the temperature or pressure was too high. It would be sad to wash your hard work off!
Aren’t they fun? I love them!
