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.
Bamboo or Wooden Cookiing utensils

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. Make sure your line is straight all the way around the handle. Press the tape down smoothly, checking for bubbles along the edge. This will ensure your line is clear, smooth, and straight.
Once you’ve taped up all your utensils, you’re ready to paint. Use your acrylic paint and paint a thin, even layer on the ends of your itensils. Allow them to dry for thirty minutes before removing the tape. Before removing the tape, check to make sure that you don’t need to apply a second coat of paint.
It’s best to wash these utensils by hand. The paint can be scrubbed off, but a rag and warm water to remove any food particles won’t damage them at all. Just avoid the dishwasher, which you should do with wooden utensils anyway. Enjoy making these DIY Paint Dipped Utensils!
