Everyone can use a little more positive energy! You may or may not be familiar with New York Time’s best seller Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work surrounding water. His books, full of photos that you must see to believe, prove the power of words. If it works on water we figured why not food! (Goodness knows our American diet needs all the help it can get.) You can paint or wood burn them. (If you paint them you need to cover them with a food safe sealant or polyurethane. Read details below. )
And even if you’re not into the whole “words are energy” thing they still make a beautiful gift! (Hand wash only.)

Positive Energy Wooden Spoons Supplies
- Wooden spoons
- Wood patterns (optional)
- Carbon or graphite paper for tracing
- Wood burner OR Sharpie Markers
- Polyurethane (If you use markers. Read below.)
*IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT MARKERS & SEALANTS
If you decide to use markers you need to coat the spoons with sealant before drawing on them to help prevent bleeding. You also need to use a sealant afterwards so the markers do not get into your food. I did some research on this topic and what I was told by several people was that using a polyurethane coating to either dip or spray your spoons would work and would not be any more harmful than plastic food storage bags. Do your own research and if its still a concern do the word burning instead!

Positive Energy Wooden Spoons Instruction
You can trace the patterns we provide onto your spoons or outline your own words. Go over the words with a wood burner. If using markers coat your spoons with a food safe sealant first to help the markers to not bleed as much. Trace your words with markers then coat 2 or 3 times with the sealant allowing to dry in between.
I’ve had this package for probably 20 years. Pretty sure I still owned a typewriter. But I date myself… anyway it seems it’s called graphite paper now and can be found in craft areas if you need it for tracing.
Cut out the patterns.
Layer your carbon or graphite paper under the pattern.
Trace the words and any part of the design you wish onto the spoon.
Using a wood burner or markers to go on the spoon. Make sure to use a sealant of your choice to seal your spoons if you use the markers.
