We painted our spoons with acrylic paint.  This means that we didn’t need to sand the spoons.  If you are using acrylic paint bear in mind that it can stain fabric.  I love the idea of using floral foam to stand the spoons into paint like Amanda did.  We just placed ours on some scrap paper and painted one side and then the other.

Mark your chicks faces on the back of the spoon with a sharpie.  We kept it simple with just eyes in black and a triangle in orange for the beak.
