Instructions

  • Lightly sand the front and back surfaces of the plastic spoons.
  • Paint the front and back of each spoon with Butter Cream, Pink, Grape Taffy, Pool Blue, and Spearmint. When dry apply a second coat.
  • Use the handle end of the paintbrush to add polka dots with White paint to the handles of the spoons.
  • Paint the terra cotta pots white. When dry apply a second coat.
  • Paint the rim of each pot with Butter Cream, Pink, Grape Taffy, Pool Blue, and Spearmint.
  • Use the eraser end of a pencil to add polka dots to each pot to correspond with the color of the rim.
  • Paint beaks onto spoons with Orange.
  • Use the handle end of a paintbrush to add Black dots for eyes.
  • Cut floral foam into 1-inch cubes and use white craft glue to attach to the inside the bottom of each terra cotta pot.
  • Cut cardstock into strips about 3” x ¾” and write the names of each guest. To add the “hands” dip your finger into the paint and gently press to the left and right sides of each name card using the corresponding color for each spoon and pot.
  • Tie ribbon into bows and hot glue the bows to the “necks” of the spoons. Insert the end of each spoon into the floral foam.
  • Tuck tissue paper into the pots to cover the floral foam and the base of each spoon.
  • Hot glue the name tags to the spoons under the bows.
