How Tuesday : Painted Wooden Spoons

Here's a really simple, inexpensive craft that makes an awesome personalized gift! Spray-painted wooden spoons give you a really cute, cohesive look for less.

I found this bamboo spoon set on Amazon for $8, but this would work on any wooden spoons. I think it would be cute if they were mis-matched spoons in all the same color.

The paint colors I used were Krylon "White" "Banner Red" and "Bright Idea". This would be a really great way to personalize the spoons to match your kitchen, or the kitchen of the recipient if it's a gift.

Start by making sure your spoons are clean, with no residue from stickers or previous use if you're not starting with new spoons.

I taped around each spoon a couple of inches up along the handle. After I took this picture I added another row of tape higher up, just to be on the safe side.

They looked great after one coat, so I left it at that. You might prefer two, depending on how even the first one comes out. I placed them in between two nesting bowls to dry without touching anything.

After they dried I carefully peeled the tape off and voila!

They look so good! I think they would make an awesome present for a bridal shower, maybe tied with ribbon or in a crock from their registry. You could make them in colors to match their new kitchen.
