  • linen fabric
  • deep picture frame or shadow box

  • wooden spoons
  • foam paintbrush
  • scissors

Remove the backing from a frame, then cut a piece of linen the same size. Attach the linen to the backing using spray mount glue.

Step 3

Attach the spoons to the linen with double-sided foam mounting tape, then replace the backing.
