Welcome to day 25 of my 25 Days of Craftmas series – the final day! Today I’m showing you how to make your own wood burned Christmas spoons.  This project is my absolute FAVORITE!  That’s why I saved it for the last.  I love these for so many reasons.  They are unique, the designs are permanent, and they are food safe.

Up until I made this project, I had never used a wood burning tool.  So, you don’t need a lot of experience to make these work.  But, you might want to practice on some scrap wood until you get the hang of it.  And, a word of caution, the tool can get extremely HOT, so be careful.  Use the tool rest when you need a break and be sure to unplug it when you’re finished.

Learn how to make your own wood burned Christmas spoons with this easy to follow tutorial. With a few tools and your Silhouette or Cricut machine, you'll be able to create these cute wood burned Christmas spoons for your home or as gifts. This DIY project is easy and quick to make and is the perfect gift for family and friends. #ChristmasSilhouette #ChristmasCricut #ChristmasSVG

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

Start by measuring the width and height of the head of the spoon.  In your software program, draw an oval that is that same size. Then, place the design inside the oval and fit to size.  The spoon I used measured about 2.25″ x 3″.  So, this is what my stencil looked like.  After everything is sized correctly, cut out the vinyl stencil.

I found my spoons at Walmart and I like that they have a jumbo head, it gave me a bigger work area for the stencil.

Apply the vinyl to the spoon.  Since it’s a curved surface, the vinyl won’t lay flat.  You’ll probably have a few creases, but that’s ok.

There are several tips in the package.  I used the round tip with a round pointed end for this project. I used the tool and traced around the outside of the letters and then filled in the letter, kind of like coloring a picture.

Don’t touch the tool right by the tip.  You’re hand goes about half way up the tool, so it takes a bit of time to get used to it. It can also get hot, so be careful.  Take a break if you need to.
