One Dollar snowman spoons

I'm late in posting this morning, but I'm late at everything this time of year. So much to do, so little time!

I found these great vintage spoons at a thrift store... they were 4/$1.00, so I thought they would be perfect to use for One Dollar Wednesday. Now, I am not suggesting that spoons bought at thrift stores are good for eating from...but they are perfect for crafting.

Out to the Spray Paint Place for a coat of metal primer, and a quick coat of "snow" white.

Add an orange carrot nose with a permanent marker...

and additional details with a fine point Sharpie.

Cut four rectangles from scrap fabric,

and fold up the very end of the fabric to form a little rim for the hat.

Attach to the spoon with a dot of glue.

Complete the hat by gluing it together in the back, and adding a little yarn tie to the top. Now bend back the spoon~ the hardest part of this entire craft!

Hang the happy little guy on the tree for a season of snowman smiles!


  1. Okay, I know Christmas is over, but I am enamored with these cute little guys. I am bookmarking your tutorial for next year. They will be perfect for my grandchildren. I make them an ornament each year. Of course, mine will have to have their names & the year on the back of the spoon. So glad I discovered your blog; it looks like it will be so much fun. I am a new follower. Happy New Year!

  2. These are so cute! I made some for myself and an ornament exchange. I added some snow-tex along the rim and Christmas embellishments. They turned out great! Thanks for the idea!
