Add some holiday cheer to your kitchen with this easy and fun Saint Nicholas Wooden Spoon craft project.

This project is perfect for anyone looking to add a touch of whimsy to their Christmas d├ęcor.

Materials needed:

  • Wooden spoon
  • White wool
  • Piece of cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Red twist ribbon
  • Acrylic paints in flesh-tone, white, pink, red, grey, and black
  • Medium and detail paint brush
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Gold and white cording
  • Finishing spray or varnish

Paint the wooden spoon with a coat of flesh-tone and allow drying.

Use the end of your paint brush to dot on two black eyes with paint. Then, use red paint to make a red circle nose and a mouth. Add some color to the cheeks with pink acrylic paint.

Next, paint on a white mustache and hair with white paint strokes. Take a bit of grey paint to add detail lines to Santa’s hair and mustache. Once you’re satisfied with your design, apply a finishing coat and allow drying.

To add some dimension to your Saint Nicholas Spoon, unravel a piece of red paper twist paper and fold it in half. Cut a slit in the fold and feed the bottom of the spoon through. Cut a second piece of twist paper for arms and slip it under the unfolded piece and too the back. Use a bit of hot glue to keep it in place. Tie a piece of gold and white cord around the center of the coat and make a bow. Then, glue the arms down crisscrossed on the front with a bit of hot glue.

Finally, take a rectangle piece of cardboard and wrap your white wool around and round it like you would if making a pom-pom. Then take another wool piece and feed it under the wad of wool and tie a knot. Your Saint Nicholas Wooden Spoon is now complete and ready to use!
