Wood Burned Cutlery

I was at the grocery store this week and I saw that they were selling disposable wooden cutlery as an alternative to plastic cutlery.  I immediately thought of the crafty possibilities!  So, I took them home with me and decided to take my wood burning tool to them.

This is what they look like straight out of the package:

I rounded up my supplies...

...a wood burning tool, a piece of sandpaper (it is cutlery after all, and has to be smooth to be used), and a glass mat.

Here are the three sets of cutlery I made:

Looks like I need to get the sandpaper out and smooth out that fork!  I can really see the rough edges in these photos!

After spending the time decorating them, I'll confess that I'm not sure that I want to use them...but perhaps I'll be brave and just remember that I can always make more!  I also think they'd make for cute kitchen decorations grouped by cutlery type like so:

I might even punch a hole in them and use them as ornaments on the Christmas tree!

What would you use these wood burned forks, knives, and spoons for?

Thanks for stopping by!
