Maybe I am alone, but I think they are sooooo charming! The little spoons don't have real measurements they say such cute things like:
My family must know me because I don't measure much. I throw in a bit of this and handful of that, but now I must use the word "smidgen"!
Measuring spoons, albeit largely unused, I have! What I do not have is much kitchen decor. So.... TADA!
Do you have something charming you could display on your wall? I will tell you the easy process of how I did it. Sorry ,but I did this b-4 I started this blog and so you can't see me actually gluing and such, but trust me: YOU CAN DO THIS!
First I found an old but deep frame at a second hand store whose picture, I am sad to say did not turn out. :( Next, take out the pictures/ boards in the center of the frame. If one of the boards are flat you can use it for your purposes, if not, cut one out of some good sturdy material.
Next, cut a piece of material about an inch and a half larger in diameter than your board. I chose a damask pattern because I adore damask!
Then put a good layer of Modge Podge on your board and smooth on the material making sure to center it well and to have no air bubbles. Turn your board over and using your glue gun, fold the excess material over and glue it down. When you get to the corners, fold them neatly & glue as well. When you are done you should have something like this (minus the brads).
On the back I cut a piece of felt the size of my board and hot glued it on to make it look neat.
I then put another layer of Modge Podge over the Damask material to add a little shine & to make it easier to wipe clean when it invariably collects dust and such.
FINALLY I primed & painted my frame...
...installed my charming Damask board, mounted it on my wall & hung my prized measuring spoons on the brads!
I love it! I feel like a treasured wife & mother anytime I see it, which is daily!!
