Spoonfull of Christmas

Thanks for stopping by on this Friday.

Today I have for you a fun little project keeping with the Design Teams wooden spoon "updo" theme.

My spoon is a little nod to a vintage Christmas in baby blue and festive red.  I used a fun Santa image from the Christmas Bottle Cap collage sheet as my focal point for my spoon.  The pretty blue base was created with the so easy to use Americana Decor chalk paint in "vintage". 

I used my Wink of Stella gold nib pen to create various sizes of polka dots all over the front and along the edges.  I distressed the edges just a bit.  I then added Petaloo paintable flowers that I washed with the same Vintage chalk paint then added just a glimmer of gold metallic acrylic paint on top of the blue.  I could not resist adding a bit of festive red cup chain to dangle from the top...just for extra sparkle when hanging on our tree.
For the hanger I used an antiqued light bulb safety pin hot glued to the back of the spoon as the "hanger".  I camouflaged this with another Petaloo flower. I added the very beautiful Hydrangea hand dyed ribbon for hanging.  This is the back of the spoon with the pin covered with the flower and ribbon added.
You can see the safety pin adhered to the back here prior to decorating.  Easy peasy to cover with pretty little flowers. 

Thanks so much for hanging out with me today.  Have a wonderful weekend!
