Custom Engraved Wooden Spoon Wedding Gift
I love being able to give custom items for wedding gifts. There’s just something about getting a gift that helps commemorate your special day. This summer my brother-in-law got married and I decided to make an engraved wooden spoon for them.
The Dremel® Micro™ 8050 tool was the perfect tool for this project. The Micro 8050 is the most “brilliantly powerful” and precise cordless rotary tool that Dremel has made.
I purchased a simple wooden spoon with a thick handle so there would be plenty of space. I used a word processing program to create the text I wanted on the spoon.
With a sharp pencil I traced over the lettering… pressing into the spoon so I would be able to see it.
Then I used this Dremel tip…
The Dremel® Micro™8050 is light weight and super easy to handle… they had crafters, hobbyists and DIYers in mind when they designed this one. It has a soft grip, LED front-end lighting to illuminate the project you are working on, a docking station that continually charges, and an 8V Max Lithium-ion battery. With the Micro 8050 you can cut, carve, engrave, sand, grind, sharpen, clean and polish… this is one powerful little tool!
I slowly went over my traced lines. I used the medium-low speed first and then went over the lines again on a medium speed to make the engraving deeper.
I went over the lines about 3 times to get the look you see here.
Place the engraved wooden spoon in a cute wired basket with some kitchen towels, kitchen gadgets and some favorite recipes and you have a great custom wedding gift idea.
My new sister-in- law is a great cook too, so hopefully she’ll create some memorable meals with her memorable spoon.

Hello Maryann Thanks for great article. Give some exclusive tips for carving spoon.
Really cool post – I learnt a thing or two about engraving on a spoon!
I see you mentioned the use of a Dremel tool. I actually recently wrote a complete FAQ on using a Dremel tool.
Maybe your readers might get some use out of it 🙂
I love this idea! I think the engraving pen is fantastic (I’d even give that as the gift itself!) and it is so useful for many gifts to come! Having something personalized is always a wonderful idea and a great gift that is sure to be appreciated and valued. Thanks for sharing this, great post!
Yeah, me too. I feel pleasure to gift couples in wedding ceremony. But often people confused to gift a couple. They just can’t decide that what should they gift. Here, is the best gift idea to make a wedding celebration perfect and unforgettable. These wooden spoon are really so useful along with fashionable.
Every couple will get amazed by taking this gift. This is perfect and wonderful for them. It is not necessary to gift them an expensive stuff. A gift is only for an attachment and show our good conception for them.
I love the idea to write the name over it. It’s really wonderful.
Thanks for informaing such wonderful idea for making wedding fantastic.
Thanks for sharing it.
Selecting gifts for someone is always a good task for ladies, and if the gift is for wedding it must be special. From the purchased gift, it is best to make it something creative.
Your idea of giving the gift is so good and it will definitely always be infront of them and make them recognize their date. The custom spoon was so beautifully engraved, it is the best idea to gift someone close to you.

Me too Kelly!
What a thoughtful, personal gift! Love the Dremel!
It’s a great tool Amy!
I love how you overlayed the printed paper to make it easier. I want a spoon like this! Now I need a dremel! Thanks for sharing.
Awesome little tool, you did great job engraving their names. I’d love to have a wedding gift like that, something not every body will give them. Great idea MaryAnn.
The new Dremel looks like it’s even handier than my old one I got in early 90’s. Used to use it quite often. I have trouble with my hands, no feelings in finger tips of both hands and strength is abating more all the time. Have arthritis in left thumb so badly can’t even bend it anymore and arthritis in wrists, some of other fingers.
Getting old really is no fun when you need to use hands to make things and can’t . Have had to learn to do things differently if possible. Can’t crochet any more so I use one of those plastic looms to knit. Can only use it for short periods of time. Also have nerve damage in right arm from accident in 98. But at least I still have my arm, am lucky that way.
Enjoy your great little Dremel. I’ll have to get mine out. Happy week
You’ll have to drag yours back out and try it again JaneEllen!
Cutest wedding present idea ever!
Awe thanks Paula!
