Paint dipped spoons

If your wooden spoons are looking a little forlorn, this is an easy way to make them shiny and happy again. Plus they make really pretty presents or you could just customise them for your own kitchen.  HOURS of fun…

Can you handle this?

Too hot to handle. Oh yes.
  • First choose your wooden spoons or utensils.   If they are slightly shiny/varnished then scuff them with a bit of sandpaper until they feel slightly rough as this will help to hold the paint
  • Then wrap some masking tape around the handle, this is where your paint will finish (see photo below)
  • Coat with non toxic craft paint one side at a time: I opted for little pots of enamel paint and when dry finish with a layer of high gloss food safe shellac to give them extra shiny enameled look
  • It’s probably worth mentioning that to keep the spoons pretty, they are best hand washed as you don’t want them to chip in the dishwasher
