Wooden Spoon Table Decorations

Picture 470
Following on from yesterday this has to be ‘Fiddle Farting’ at its finest!  I made six of these table decorations  using wooden spoons (4 for £1 from Poundland) and old sweet corn tins – as I said yesterday, I love to have a theme!

I have used my Cropadile to put holes around the top of the tin to thread the ribbons through.

The spoons are held in place with huge blobs of glue gun glue, I had to sit  holding the spoons in place until the glue had set hard. The flowers and  leaves  are made using Quickutz Silhouette digital downloads, layered and with a flat back gem centre.

The butterflies were made using my Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch.  I glued two together with a piece of fine pink wire between them.  The other end of the wire was glued behind the flowers. Because they were quite light the butterflies “fluttered” a bit if there was any movement around them .
