Wooden Spoon Craft: Gingerbread Spoon Puppet

These would be great for a kid’s puppet show (obviously) or to stick in floral foam as part of a centerpiece, or taped to a gift in lieu of ribbon (or in addition to ribbon). If you have indoor herbs and spices growing, these would also be adorable to plop in the pot for holiday decor!

You could also tie a candy around the stem, then cover with the ribbon, and use these as a cute little take-home Christmas brunch or dinner favor. Add a name to that candy and it becomes a name card for your holiday dinner table! Mix them up with these wood spoon crafts: Rudolph Spoon Puppet and/or Snowman Spoon Puppet!
