I was so surprised and excited when I ran across this tutorial! I never knew how they did this and always wanted to know…and do it myself! I couldn’t believe I actually have the option to use my toaster oven to do this, otherwise, I’d be out of luck!
He uses a bottle in this tutorial, but I used a mason jar, since I’m rather fond of them! Most people do this in a Kiln or they use a blow torch, but I didn’t own a kiln nor a blow torch and found a tutorial that shows how to do this in a toaster oven. That I had, so I got to make my spoon rest I had to have!
Use it as a spoon rest, tea bag holder, ring dish, coaster, candy dish…Perfect as a housewarming gift or a unique gift for any occasion! And, I made a bunch of these so I would have some for gifts. I think they are the bomb!
Every tea or coffee enthusiast needs a convenient place to rest their spoon while preparing their warm beverage. Rather than a boring plate or paper towel, use a colorful mason jar to create your own one-of-a-kind spoon rest. It also makes a fantastic gift for cooks needing a place to rest their messy utensils. The best part? This spoon rest is dishwasher-safe so you can toss it in with your other dishes.
