The wooden utensils were already adorable, and perfect for this picnic, but the BBQ brand really made them custom and special.
Materials for "branded" (stamped) wooden utensils:
- wooden utensils
- ink stamp pad
- small stamps
It's so simple it's almost embarrasing. Just use the tiny stamps on the wooden fork or spoon! The wood is pretty absorbant, so having a light hand with the ink helped keep the stamp from bleeding and making the design fuzzy.
To create the effect of a branding iron, I offset the stamped letters and overlapped them just a bit. Using clear stamps really helped place things properly.
There are so many beautiful stamps out there, and wonderful artists who make custom stamps as well. That makes this a fabulous, versatile technique to add a little something extra to any party, no matter what theme.
