Painted Wooden Spoons

I had to do it.  I’m sure you’ve seen these cute painted wooden spoon.  They called my name and it was an enjoyable hour spent with craft paint (I used Martha’s), a little painters tape, and my favorite brush.

I made two sets.  The first is white with different metallic ends on each (silver, copper, and gold) and the second in pastels with gold ends.   

I taped off the section of the handle that I wanted painted, and I painted the white and pastels first.  When those were completely dry, I taped off about an inch on the end of the spoon and put a couple coats of the metallic paint on.  So simple and so satisfying.  I love these kinds of crafts.

So, my local friends (Bakersfield, CA).  Let’s have another DIY get together!  I really enjoyed the Spring Wreath Workshop, so let’s paint spoons together this time.  And of course we will eat treats, have coffee, and do what woman do best – chat!  Leave me a comment if you are interested in joining in this time round.  And I’d love to know if you prefer a week night or weekend.  So, tell your friends and “Like” my facebook page to find out the time and day.    

I’m not sure even where to start when crediting someone for this idea.  I feel very strongly about making sure that the creator or inventor of an idea is given props, but this is one of those crafts that I’ve been seeing all over blogs and pinterest and I don’t know where it all began.  I’ll try to credit as many sources as I can.  But, if you know the true origin of this idea, please let me know.

Check out these, and these, and these, and how about these.

    How cute and trendy are you? These are so cute! I would love to have something like this in my kitchen (except I hardly use the wooden spoon we have now – haha)! Display only, perhaps 😉

    Hope you have some nice ladies to craft with you soon!

    Ah you're the best Kristina. Thanks friend. I'm not sure if I'm going to good with them. Mostly they are just for cute.

    @Jordan Marie thanks, oops I'll have to figure out that link issue. That is the right blog, the post is just not there. Sorry 🙁
