Tis the season! If you’re looking for some unique and special gifts ideas this holiday, I suggest you head on over and peruse the pieces by Melanie Abrantes. Based out of the Oakland/San Francisco area, Melanie makes beautiful handcrafted objects using wood and cork. I’ve been a big fan and have been following her on instagram for awhile now. I always marvel at how simple and gorgeous her pieces are.
One really fun item that she has is her spoon carving kit. Included are all the carving tools and a pre-cut piece of wood for you to make your own one-of-a-kind spoon.
I’ve been slowly working away on mine. It’s the perfect lazy weekend project!
Order this week if you want to get your gifts before Christmas! (plus they can giftwrap for you in these great boxes with linen ribbon)
