Another fun project to share with you today! I created these DIY Thanksgiving Table Serving Utensils with my Cricut Explore™. They turned out wonderful and I think they’re a great way to bring something special to your holiday table. I’m sure your guests will be impressed! This would also be a wonderful gift for your Thanksgiving host.
I purchased this set of 6 bamboo serving utensils from Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $5.99. Our new puppy decided she would teeth on one of the spoons, so I only ended up with five finished serving utensils (smh).
I sanded the utensils handles a bit to remove some of the finish. My original idea was to stain the handles with wood stain, however I decided to go the sharpie method since it would be quick and cleaner!
I’m getting better at learning the Cricut Design Space™ and created this set of Thanksgiving word stencils that fit perfectly on the bamboo utensils. I felt these words represented what Thanksgiving means to me.
I carefully removed the rectangular stencils from the sheet and applied them to the handles.
This was a learning curve…when I used the sharpie alone on the first handle it bled pretty badly and I wasn’t happy with how it looked. So I flipped the utensil over and had the idea to use a ballpoint pen to create a sort of edge for the letters. I like how it also made a sort of border for the lettering. Then I filled in the words with a Sharpie and quickly wiped each letter with a paper towel to remove excess ink so it wouldn’t bleed.
There you have it! These will look lovely on your Thanksgiving table or as a kind hostess gift this fall. I’m so happy with this DIY project as part of my Cricut Design Space™ Star competition and would love if you support me by clicking over to see my project. Thank you! If you’re interested, my previous Design Space Star projects have been: Travel Delicates Bag and Halloween Flashlight Projections.
The theme for our team this month was “A Natural Holiday” and I think these bamboo utensils are a great match for that theme. Take a peek at all the other great projects my team has created!
