Decorated Wooden Spoons from Russia

Russians are very good at making decorative objects from wood. Traditional colors are gold, black, red and occasional touches of green.

Try decorating a wooden spoon. Draw your design onto the round part of the spoon in pencil. Color the background in with a black felt-tip pen. Now color in the rest of your design. Then put a ring around the inner rim of the spoon in gold. Either repeat your design on the back of the spoon, or try a new design. The handle can either be colored in, or left plain.
