Halloween Decorated Wooden Cutlery

Day 29 of Crafty October…just two more days till Halloween! (But it’s tomorrow when I’m writing this blog post :P)

Yesterday I decorated up some wooden cutlery for our Halloween dinner…sadly, I am not doing a full on party this year – so much has been going on (and will be going on!) that I just haven’t had a chance to prepare for one *sad face* It’ll be the first time in years that I’ve not thrown a Halloween party…I’ll make up for it next year 😉

Wooden cutlery is my new favourite thing…I love the look of it – so much nicer than plastic stuff – and, I can decorate it too, which brings the plain-ness of it to life!

Since there are three of us in this family, I decorated three sets of knives, forks and spoons in three different ways.

The first set are mummy wooden cutlery – I wrapped white wool around the handles and stuck on some googly eyes…

The second set, I decorated with a pumpkin sticker and some green/white bakers twine…

And the final set I took a Halloween napkin that I had in my stash of Halloween goodies, glued it to the handle and used a decoupage varnish to seal it…
