Guest Blog: Tutorial for D.I.Y. Yarn-Covered Utensils by Candidly Pretty

Hello there! Koni here of Candidly Pretty. Thank you Janna for another wonderful opportunity to share my crafts. It’s my pleasure to come up with another D.I.Y. tutorial for the lovely readers of Bride and Breakfast. It has been a long time since my last post and I will try to make it up to you by sharing this pretty table setting idea–yarn-covered wooden utensils.

I swoon over lovely florals and pretty pastels but I’m also a huge fan of bright colors, bold prints, and patterns. I’ve been chevron-crazy lately and when I started working on these turquoise chevron placemats, I just can’t help but want to splash more colors! Enter one of my favorite craft materials, yarn!!!

Hope you are ready to craft!


  • Wooden spoon and fork
  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun

Step 1: Put a little bit of hot glue on the back side of the wooden spoon.

Step 2: Start covering the wooden spoon with yarn.

Step 3: Once you’ve covered your desired length, secure the yarn by putting hot glue.

In three easy steps, you will be able to create an inexpensive decor and necessity for your tablescape!!!

Go ahead and experiment using more than one hue, create an ombre, play with a rainbow of colors. I’d love to hear how your project went. Ciao for now!
