gemmagarnerBlogged: Our Christmas tree, Limmy II, has been transformed into a little herb spoon. Link in bio. Does anyone else name their Christmas trees? #whittling #wood #carving #woodcarving #handmade #wearethemakers #craft #nature #makersgonnamake #livefolk
- ellacbeeWow! What a cool way to remember it!
- thewoodcreekAmazing! I didn't name our Christmas tree, but I did plant it out in the garden
- naomibulgerThat is the best idea, ever!
- hannahrose3101@gemmagarner you are simply amazing 👌🏻👍🏻xx
- gemmagarner@goooonies Had a little help from my mate 'Blu-tack' 😉
- gemmagarner@thewoodcreek We planted Limmy I outside but he didn't make it. Decided to use the wood rather than try again this year.
- gemmagarner@naomibulger I might do it every year then we'll have something to remember each Christmas 🎄
- gemmagarner@hannahrose3101 If you ever fancy a go I can give you a lesson! Xx
- naomibulgerThat was my thinking too. I have 10 months to learn whittling!
- overacuppaI love this idea and beautiful spoon! @bikesbug future project for your Christmas tree next January! 😊
- the.marmalade.katThat is brilliant! Spoon carving was the one thing I didn't really get the hang of at @silverpebble2 's #makingwinter retreat. I scared myself when I gashed my hand (idiot) and made a tiny hole in my trousers with the gouger hook thing. Would like to have another go sometime though, so maybe if our tree doesn't make it this year...
- gemmagarner@overacuppa Thanks so much 😊
- margotbarbaraNo, Gemma. I bet no one else named their Christmas tree. You beautiful lunatic. #baconface forever (PS: the spoon is bloody gorgeous and what an ace idea...) 😊
- firstname.lastname@example.org I ended up cutting myself that day too! And have done so with both projects I've worked on at home. Fingers seem to be magnets for sharp blades! I hope your tree survives but if it doesn't, I look forward to seeing what you make!
- gemmagarner@margotbarbara Haha! Oh dear, just me then! You know.... the grain on the spoon looks like streaky bacon in some places. Not that I'm obsessed or anything.
- 1001palletsAwesome! 👍
- dawanda_enSuch an inspiration
- anniesprattMine ended up as a spatula - and I've been using it!
- anniespratt@gemmagarner 🥓🥓🥓
