(Sorry about low quality photos – waiting for my new iphone and can’t wait!)
Saw this done on pinterest (where else! I LOOOOOOVE pinterest!!!) and couldn’t resist giving it a go. Too easy, who doesn’t have old tester pots or leftover paints lying around!? All you need then is some plain wooden spoons, masking (painters) tape and a paint brush!
So to make your plain old boring spoons instantly fabulous, just mask off a portion of the spoon that you want to paint, paint it with the colour of your choice, and leave to dry. I rested the bit of the spoon covered in masking tape on a tray edge so they dried evenly and didn’t stick to anything… When the first cost is dry, add a second coat and leave to dry again before removing tape. (So HARD, I am sooo impatient!) Of course you could go out and buy some acrylic craft paint in a special colour if you want to spoons to match your decor… And if you really want them to see the distance and be safe to use in a dishwasher I’d probably add a coat of clear matt varnish, but I am much too slap-dash for that! I was so pleased that I made some as a gift for a friend’s birthday, and printed out a nice hand-typed recipe to go along with it.
My lovely spoons chillin’ in their new home, a mason jar.
