Embossed serving utensils. Who would have known you could create these!? I am thrilled that I discovered an easy and simple way to create the cutest hostess, or newlywed gift! And the best part is that this was super easy and inexpensive to make. I can’t wait to show you how I did these! I have to say that I used my amazing Heat Gun from HomeRight that I posted about HERE. It was so fun to use to create a No-Sand Distressing technique that worked really well! So I was really excited to try my hand at embossing using the heat gun too! I truly love being a HomeRight blog ambassador and this project and it’s giveaway are sponsored by them! Woot woot!
Embossed Serving Utensils
- Wooden Serving Utensils
- HomeRight Heat Pro Deluxe II Heat Gun
- Embossing Clear Ink
- Embossing Powder (I used a beautiful turquoise color.)
- Masking Tape
Ok these are actually really quite simple to make! First you will place your stencil onto your wooden handle and tape the stencil in place. You will also want to mask off any areas you don’t want to emboss. Then you will apply your ink to your handle. Be generous and make sure lots of ink is applied. Quickly sprinkle the embossing powder on top of the ink. Then lift your stencil off of your utensil. At this point your embossing powder should be in the shape of your stencil on your wooden handle. When you get to that point, all you will need to do is use your heat gun to melt and emboss your powder! Turn your heat gun on and let it heat up and emboss your powder until you have a smooth finish! It only takes a few seconds. And for very little cost and time, you can create your own beautiful Embossed Serving Utensils! These would make the perfect hostess gift or even a great wedding gift! And wouldn’t these be fun to make in the bride’s colors to use at her bridal shower or wedding reception? And then they could be gifted to her afterwards! The possibilities are truly endless!
I really do LOVE how these embossed serving utensils turned out! And now, it’s time for you to enter to WIN your own HomeRight Heat Pro Deluxe II Heat Gun! Seriously!!! Just wait until the Rafflecopter fully loads and then enter to win!
