I haven’t had much time lately to take on anything elaborate in terms of craft projects, but this one is super simple and yields some great results.
These painted handle spoons are a fun way to make your utensils match your kitchen decor, and coincidentally they also make for great gifts.
What you’ll need
Non-toxic acrylic paint (I like the Martha Stewart brand)
Wooden or bamboo spoons
-I used some sandpaper to rough up the ends of the brushes where I intended to paint. I’m not sure if this helps the paint to adhere, but figured it couldn’t hurt (that’s why this step is optional).
-Apply painters tape to the end of the spoon where you wish to paint.
-Get to painting. You will want to apply at least a couple of coats to get good coverage.
-Allow to dry.
-Allow them to cure for a few days, then spray with clear shellac spray to seal.
*** I never put these spoons in the dishwasher and always wash my spoons by hand.
