I found a giant bag of wood kitchen utensils at my favorite discount store for $8.00. You can’t have too many right? I decided to recreate a popular Pinterest look by giving them a paint dipped look. This is a fun, quick weekend craft!
I selected some fun, summer, sherbert paint colors. Painting just the ends, each a different color . . . is so fun! This is a quick craft. It only took me about 20 minutes to paint them all. After the first set were painted, I added a second coat and finished that with a coat of clear, matte Modge-Podge so the paint would last through dish washing.
After I finished, I realized these would make a great gift! Think new college student, Christmas, housewarming or hostess gift. They would make me swoon if I received them.
- Acrylic Paint in Your Choice of Colors
- Modge-Podge in Your Choice of Finish (Matte or Glossy)
- Wooden Kitchen Utensils
- Paper Towels
- Paper Plate
I covered my table with paper towels. Use a pencil to draw a line where you would like the paint to start. It’s easier than painting the line freehand. Squirt a dime sized dollop of paint in each color on the paper plate. Start with the lightest color first and paint the handle using thin, even strokes. I wiped off my paintbrush with a paper towel and proceeded to the next lightest color. Follow this process until complete. By now, the first one painted is done. I repeated so that each handle received two coats of paint. Now add a coat of Modge-Podge, making sure you cover all the painted surface. Allow to dry.
