Wooden Spoon Bouquet
Total Time afternoon or evening Ages all-ages

While it may be a while before your real flower garden blooms into a rainbow of spring colors, you can round up a bouquet of these bright-hued wooden perennials to liven up a countertop or coffee table in no time.

What you'll need

  • Long-handled wooden spoons
  • Acrylic or tempera paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Mug
  • Assorted flat wooden craft shapes (sold by the bagful at most craft stores)
  • Wood glue
  • Wooden beads (colored or plain)

How to make it

  1. Have your kids paint the wooden spoon handles green and stand them stem-end up in a mug to dry.

  2. For petals, glue flat wooden craft shapes to the bowl of each spoon, as pictured (this step works best if you lay the spoons on a flat surface).

  3. Once the glue is completely dry (see manufacturer's directions), your kids can paint the flowers (both front and back) and stand them in a mug to dry.

  4. Lastly, glue a cluster of wooden beads in the center of each flower.
