DIY: Etched Wooden Spoons

A Spoonful…


Wooden utensils

Wood burner


Food safe mineral oil and towel (not pictured)

Tips: Buy utensils in large pack and keep a few in stock to give as your go-to hostess gift. Tie them with twine and a rosemary stem.


1. Turn the wood burner on and set aside. Draw your design out in pencil. Shown here is a simple starburst pattern on the neck of the spoon with three curved accent lines at the bottom.

2. Apply the tip of the burner to the penciled design with slow steady strokes. Go over each line twice if needed. 

3. Soak the corner of a towel in mineral oil and rub evenly over both utensils. This step can be repeated after each use or after a run in the dishwasher.
