Wooden Spoons Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Art

Wooden Spoons Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Art

Before I share today’s project, I’ve got a question for you.

What kinds of things do you collect?

If money were no object, there are so many things I’d love to collect, like antique quilts.

But, alas, money IS an object, so I’m a cheap collector. 🙂

In fact, the most money I think I’ve ever spent on something I love to collect was a whopping $18 for an antique ironstone pitcher.

I was bidding on it at an auction and wanted it SO badly, but I told myself I absolutely wouldn’t spend more than $20.

Our budget was very tight, and I just couldn’t afford to spend any more than that.  So as the bid went up a few dollars each time, I really didn’t think I’d win, so when I raised my hand to bid $18, I held my breath, certain that someone would outbid me.

I nearly got up and danced when the auctioneer said I’d won!

I’ve shared ways I’ve used that beautiful old pitcher here, and here, and I still love it as much as the day I won it.

Back to today’s project though, which is farmhouse kitchen wall art made with old wooden spoons.

Wooden things are the perfect farmhouse collectible for cheapos like me.

I never pay more than a couple of dollars at the most for any of them, and I’ve collected quite a few.  So I figured I could spare some and make inexpensive wall art with them.

Here’s how I did it:

How to Make Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Art with Wooden Spoons

Supplies used:

salvaged wood board

assortment of vintage wooden spoons

glue gun and glue sticks, or more permanent glue

D-ring hangers or sawtooth hanger

  • Cut a piece of rustic, salvaged wood to desired size.  My piece is 16″ x 12″.
  • Play around with the placement until you like the layout.
  • Flip up one side of each spoon and squirt hot glue under each one.
  • Attach hangers on the back and hang it up.

Make sure to put glue on the lowest part of the spoon that touches the wood and some at the tip of the handle.

    For the kitchen I collect old kitchen utensils along with rolling pins and old baking pans.
    Like the idea on what you done with them wooden spoons. Makes for great wall art. I have some that have really been well used. I just may have to do that with some of mine. Thank you.

  2. Mellisa Stuckert says

    I like to collect a lot of vintage wares from potato mashers to old enamel wares to aluminum pieces. Your spoon art has given me something else to watch for this yard sale season in Michigan. You always give us new ways to use and display our goodies!

  3. Kathleen Blodgett says

    I collect vintage soda bottles and have them displayed with soda crates and caps on an industrial looking bar cart in my living room. I collect Atlas Mason Jars and have them in a big wire basket in my family room all facing the same way so you can see the embossed words. I collect white/black enamelware and store it in a locker I painted much the same color in my dining room where I also have collections of old embossed milk and dairy bottles in milk crates. Who turned me on to antiques? My husband!

  4. Very pretty, Angie! I love collecting old wood utensils…they are still inexpensive!

  5. Naomi S. says

    I have a small collection of ironstone and transferware, and a small collection of the Brambly Hedge figures and plates modeled after the characters in Jill Barklem’s Brambly Hedge books. Those are probably my favorites. I also have a tiny collection of ??? and a tiny collection of a “tea leaf” pattern on white, one or two pieces of which I inherited from my grandmother and added to. I also collect old wooden thread spools and small cow pictures and figurines. What else? All my collections are pretty small and I add to them whenever I see something I can’t pass up, but I don’t have a lot of display room in my house so that limits me. My daughter would say it doesn’t limit me enough! Oh, yes, I also collect African Violets and have more and less periodically. I tend to propagate them with leaf cuttings but, again, space is an issue and sometimes the numbers get out of hand so I have to start giving them away!

    There are more collections but these are the main ones.

  6. Naomi S. says

    Oh, I forgot to fill in the word where the question marks are. Couldn’t think of it but it should be “enamel ware.” Sorry!

  7. Going to try this as soon as I find a piece of wood. I have the spoons so I’m halfway there. Thanks for the idea. I’m a budget decorator also – but I think it’s more fun. Always looking for that special item that calls out my name!

    My husband and I have a dairy farm, I LOVE old cow bells,….but I Also am a sucker for “vintage scales ” . My grown daughter sat in a kitchen chair and from where she sat….she said “mom…I think you,have an obsession w scales,” and she started counting…, my fruit ‘bowl ‘ is a scale, my kitchen utensil holder is a scale, my table centerpiece starts w a scale, etc etc….there were just 10 in my kitchen, all used for diff things but all so clever and CUTE ?

  9. I collect anything vintage for the kitchen. I have beaters on old barn wood and bottle openers on wood hung up in my kitchen. I also have my mothers graters, rolling pin and sifter.

  10. I love seeing creativity in finding the beauty of ordinary objects and transforming them from something you’d throw out, into something you’d be happy to hang on the wall to make it look more “homely”. Thank you very much for sharing!
