DIY Painted Handle Spoons

You guys, it's been awhile since I posted a good DIY project.

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
Painters tape
A paintbrush
Sandpaper (optional)

How to:

-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.

-Remove tape.

-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.

See, super simple and super cute right!  Just the way I like a project to be these days!
