I actually had an etcher sitting unused among my craft supplies for years, not knowing it’s super fun potential until Amy shared her projects! I decided to dust it off and try my hand at decorating some spoons and some wooden rolling pins to give as gifts.
I bought a bunch of wooden spoons (they are about $1 for a pack of four at WalMart) and let them go to town decorating them with pencil.
Even my one year old was able to get in on the action.
Oh, and I added their name and the year on the side.
Simple as that!
And it’s such an affordable gift. The most expensive part is the etcher, but even that is only about $15 (I got mine at Michael’s a few years ago but I believe the price is still about the same); and you can use it again and again.
I honestly, can’t wait for another occasion to make more! :)
