Simple Washi Tape Decorative Wooden Spoons

These gorgeous decorative wooden spoons are an easy DIY using washi tape and sealer. Minimalist design makes a big impact!

Looking for a quick last minute gift? Then you’ve got to make some of these gorgeous wood spoons decorated with washi tape. Seriously, you can’t believe how simple it is to make these!

If you can stick tape to a spoon, then you can do this!

What I love is that these wood spoons are easy to make but look very stylish. Displayed in a glass jar on the kitchen countertop, they are simple, minimalist design.

With a dishwasher-safe sealant, they can be used to cook with. However, I would definitely recommend hand washing, since wooden utensils shouldn’t be put in the dishwasher.

Plus, wooden spoons and washi tape can be bought at a dollar store. Which makes this a really inexpensive gift to make!

How to Make Decorative Wooden Spoons

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Total time: 25 minutes  (plus overnight drying)



  1. Cut washi tape and apply it to the wooden spoons. Be sure you press down well so that it adheres to the wooden spoon
  2. Apply a thin coat of sealer and allow to dry overnight.

Where do you get the tape and the dishwasher-safe sealant? Love this idea...

@Single Girls DIY, I wondered about that also. These are what I called simply elegant for any new cook in particular. I've done the pinecones before but have not actually used them. They were just FUN TO MAKE! P.S. Doc is my wonderful, beautiful, sweet, Kelpie canine who was rescued and brought to me in Wisconsin all the way from Texas. I have been "MOM" to many dogs and cats over the years. Doc had been abandoned and abused several times before coming to his forever home here. It took 2 years to get him through his trust issues and settled down from being almost untouchable. He is very happy now, extremely intelligent (Aussies are in the top 5 for intelligence), and no longer tries to kill Tommy (rescued cat) though after 6 years, he still has fears of abandonment and follows me around or checks to make sure I am here. People tell me what a wonderful dog he is. I tell them I believe in the 3 Ps: Patience, Perseverance, & Prayers and of course, you need a lot of love thrown in with it. He was worth those first 2 years and he is definitely my baby!

Hi Barbara! You can get both products online. I've linked to them in the Supplies section (just click the highlighted words to go to the products). I've seen washi tape in the dollar tree before, and any craft store will have both of the supplies, too.

Love both ideas (wax-coated pinecones and wooden spoons) The pinecones as a gift is unusual and beautiful.
