The other day on Pinterest I came across this lovely photo:
It just so happened that I had recently packed away some of our wooden spoons when making room for some wedding gifts! So I pulled those bad boys out to make my own, more colorful version of the pinned picture.
It was super easy. First I rigged up a cardboard box destined for recycling to be a drying area. I didn't want any paint dribbling on my counters. So I just popped some clippy spoon rests (love them for cooking! Buy here) to the box so I could insert the painted spoons for drying.
If you don't have clippy spoon guys already, then you can also make something similar yourself out of a binder clip, paper clip, and some sort of ring. I used a carabiner, but a regular key ring would work too.
Next came the painting. I just cleaned the spoons, then dipped them in my bottles of craft paint. I went with a yellow, pink, and teal, but then decided I wanted lime green instead of yellow, so I redipped one.
Go ahead and put it in the spoon rest, then take a paint brush and use it to remove the excess paint and do touch-ups. I used the bottom of the box to brush the extra paint away.
Let them dry overnight, and then they're ready!
My sister & I DIYed that crock with my Silhouette :)
It was such an easy project and I love how the spoons turned out! Best thing? I had everything on hand so it was 100% free! Gotta love that.
