WOODEN PLAY SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS


So I'm definitely jumping on board with the wooden play toys trend. I figure the less plastic in everyones life the better. Although silly me I put a plastic button on this craft...oh well, I couldn't find what I was originally looking for so I had to compromise.

I'm in the process of making Ashtyn a little wooden kitchen (stay tuned for pics) so I've been wanting to make her some felt food and wooden accessories to go along with it. I originally saw this idea on another great blog called Homemade by Jill, and thought that I NEEDED to make Ashtyn a set of these.


I had the spools on hand and circle pieces but I didn't have the dome shaped pieces for the top of the shakers. Then I got an idea....I could use buttons....a white and black one. Then I took the negative of a letter sticker and stenciled the S and P on with non toxic paint. I love how they turned out. Oh and I can't forget the rice I put inside to make the shaker sound.

I think Ashtyn will like playing with these and salting her food just as much as her Grandpa likes to salt his....hee hee.

I was happy to find this cute wooden thing a majigger at Michaels yesterday to hold Ashtyn's S and P shakers!!
