Sugar and spice and all things nice spoon DIY


We have several plastic bags filled with shells, sticks and strangely smelling things standing in the garage.
Lovely stuff from the far-away sea, collected in the far-away holidays. I didn't really want to throw it away,
but I didn't quite know what to do with it either.

Until yesterday!




Don't know if these spoons are really as cool as I think they are, but I am definitely very much in love :-).




An easy peasy DIY for everybody with a similar stash:


You will need:


Glue (mine is called 'no more nails' )
little wooden sticks
shells






Glue the shells onto the sticks and enjoy!





Have a lovely Thursday

  34. I didn't read all of the comments, so I apologize if this is a redundant remark. These would be so cute as an accessory to bath salts!. Maybe a little bit o' ribbon and some little crystal and pearl beads - or better - sea glass pebbles wired around the handles. Pinned this to my tutorials board. Thanks for posting.
