My all-time favorite Christmas story is “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”. So, when my daughter brought home this adorable craft as my Christmas gift from school I was in love.
This simple treasure is a wooden spoon featuring the quote, “not a creature was stirring, now even a . . . “. At the bottom is a thumbprint mouse.
These cute spoons will make an adorable Christmas keepsake gift for loved ones. To make your own, follow the steps below.
What you’ll need: wooden spoon, black and red fine-tip sharpies, black ink pad, and ribbon (optional).
1. Stamp your little one’s thumb at the bottom of the spoon.
2. Draw on the mouse’s features
3. Write: Not a creature was stirring, not even a . . .
4. Tie a ribbon on the handle for added charm.
You may also want to attach a wallet-size picture of your child. My spoon was given to me in a cello bag. Because a ribbon is already attached, though, wrapping is optional.
