Back in 2014 (seriously feels like forever ago) I got hitched and had several bridal showers with about 16 hostesses total. I needed a hostess gift that wouldn’t break the bank (I was a sophomore in college taking care of kiddos for a living, so yeah…) that was also super cute. I turned to my friends on Pinterest and stumbled upon the amazing world of color dipped everything. I decided to take three wooden spoons, color dip them (there’s actually NO dipping involved), and tie them together with the cutest of bows. They were a hit! Today I wanted to show y’all how I did it and chat about a few other ways you can use these spoons!
What you’ll need: Painters tape, three sponge brushes ($0.25 at walmart!), three different colors of craft paint, clear acrylic sealer, and wooden spoons. I found my wooden spoons at Target this time around but Amazon has great deals as well!
Last time around I used traditional paint brushes but decided to go the sponge brush route this time around. Fantastic idea. Do the same!
Step 1: Tape off the tips of each spoon with painters tape. Make sure it’s tight so little lines of paint don’t seep through.
Step 2: Paint just the tip of each spoon with the color of your choice. LOVE sticking with colors in the same family to get the ombre look.
Step 3: Let the spoons dry for about thirty minutes. Once they’re dry to touch, you’ll want to step outside and spray with your sealer. Then let them sit over night.
Now that you’re done you can display them in your kitchen to add a pop of color or tie them in a bow and give as a gift! All in all this took about an hour and I’ll definitely be doing it again. Hooray for simple DIY’s.
