I feel like I spend a lot of my life in two rooms of my house: the kitchen and the laundry room. I do my best to try and add little touches to each of those rooms to make me in a better mood, and to make my work there a little more enjoyable! An easy way to do that in the kitchen is with these cute DIY Paint Dipped Utensils! They’re super easy, and don’t take but a couple of minutes.
They also make great gifts. They would be cute to give as part of a wedding gift, or bridal shower gift, or even a fun DIY for Mother’s Day! This craft is so simple that even kids and young as preschool can do this with supervision easily.

Start off by deciding how far down you want the paint to go on the handle of your utensils. Once you’ve decided how much color you want, tape a very straight line around the utensil. It is very important that your line is completely straight around the handle. Tape it down to seal off all of the edges.
Once that is done, you can paint. Use your favorite acrylic paint and apply a thin, even layer on the end of the utensils. Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes. If needed, apply a second coat of paint. Once you have reached the desired coverage, remove the tape.
In order to prevent the paint from coming off, it is best to wash them by hand. While you can use a rag and warm water and remove food, keep in mind that scrubbing too hard can remove the paint.
