When the Madewell x Food52 collection came out a while ago, I very nearly spent 30 bucks on these wooden spoons just cause they're so dang cute. I snapped myself out of it just in time and realized they'd be super easy to recreate. These take minimal effort and just a few supplies but the payoff is huge! I love them! And they are the perfect gift for a housewarming, birthday, Mother's Day, or pretty much anything! Or you could just hoard them all for yourself. No judgement. Hope you make 'em!
DIY Paint-Dipped Wooden Spoons
small paint brush
painter's tape (washi tape works too!)
mason jar or glass
Decide how much of the spoon handle you'd like to paint and wrap a piece of tape around the handle to mark the spot and prevent paint from bleeding onto the part you want left bare. Using a thin coat of paint, evenly paint all around the bottom portion of the handle. Place upside down in the mason jar to dry. Apply a second coat and allow to dry completely before removing tape. You can repeat as many coats you like until you reach the desired opacity. Voila!
*I recommend hand-washing these little guys to help the paint last longer.
