Do you like to make your own gifts? Would you like to make a little money on the side? I’m hosting another Hometalk TV episode and this time I’m creating DIY craft ideas to make and sell.
Wood Burned Spoon
I purchased a wood spoon from Walmart.
I cut a square of carbon paper and placed it on the spoon with the carbon side down.
I printed out the woods “Let’s Spoon” onto a piece of paper and placed that onto the carbon paper. I then used a pencil and traced the words.
The carbon left the words onto the spoon.
I then warmed up my wood burning tool, and I traced the carbon letters with the wood burning tool.
You could easily decorate the handle, write other creative sayings, draw pictures, etc.

I then placed a sticker face down onto the Mod Podge.
You could easily use other items like napkin, paper, wrapping paper, photos, etc.
I then placed another layer of Mod Podge over the top to seal it.
While that was drying I painted on some glitter nail polish on a second rock.
Once both were dry, I painted on a layer of solid nail polish on top to create a solid background. You could easily use acrylic paint as well.
There are so many possibilities for this little project and they can be personalized so easily.

I placed an adhesive stencil onto a glass mug.
I painted Armour Etch (etching cream) onto the stencil.
I let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinsed the etching cream off.
You can do this with anything that’s glass, and the possibilities are endless – candle holders, mirrors, picture frames, recycled jars and bottles…

I colored the stencil in with a dry erase marker and peeled the stencil off.
I used my Dremmel Engraver and engraved over the dry erase maker.
This is great for personalizing, and can be done on stainless coffee mugs and water bottles.
