We are having so much fun making homemade Christmas gifts this year and I am loving how these Christmas Painted Wooden Spoons turned out!

They are so easy to make, you can customize the paint colors to any season or decor scheme, and thanks to that pretty satin varnish, these spoons can be used year after year to bring a bit of festivity to Christmas baking. They can be given as gifts, or make some for yourself to add some Christmas magic to your kitchen.

My daughter made a matching set for her and my mom because she loves spending time baking with her. It’s such a cute and thoughtful gift that has some extra meaning behind it. 

Some cute pairing ideas for gifting this painted wooden spoons:

  • give with a mason jar of homemade cookie mix
  • give with a box of homemade Christmas cookies
  • use a pretty ribbon to tie this spoon to a pretty kitchen towel or oven gloves
  • give with some index cards of your favorite Christmas recipes
  • give with a package of pre-made sugar cookie or gingerbread cookie mix
  • give with a few of their favorite baking supplies (or a really nice quality baking ingredient, like real vanilla extract or gourmet chocolate chips)

You could also do a full set of wooden cooking utensils in this style, or buy some bulk wooden spoons to make several of these painted spoons to give as gifts.
