Mission: To make super cute color block cooking utensils that make me feel like a cooking fashionista!
- 3 pack of cheap wooden cooking utensils from the grocery store
- Martha Stewart Craft Paint, Satin
- Painters Tape
- Paint brush
- Rust-Oleum Zinsser 408 Bulls Eye Clear Shellac Spray
Tips & Tricks Learned:
Sand your [cheap] utensils before you paint! Also – be careful to keep them away from each other after spraying with the shellac – they’ll stick together! I also re-taped prior to spraying with the shellac. I did this to make sure that there wasn’t a big ridge of paint that would look bad, and make it so the tape couldn’t totally come off.
Super easy and cute – I think that they would be a cute way to color coordinate a hostess or shower gift.
None – I loved this!
It was easy and they turned out super cute! Now that I have the huge can of the Shellac Spray, I am looking forward to making these for every housewarming and shower gift for the rest of time! I hope my friends and family are as excited about these as I am!

Mission: When I saw these on Pinterest I fell in love. They’re adorable and looked easy to do.
- First I grabbed the kids’ paints and tried painting the utensils. That was a quick fail. The paint did adhere very well. I then broke out my acrylic paints and made some progress. I tried getting fancy…another fail. It just wasn’t one of those creative kind of days for me
Tips & Tricks Learned:
What I learned while making these today…stay with simple, and don’t leave wet painted spoons out where the three year old can reach them. Be cautious when removing the painters tape. Don’t apply the paint too thick there.
Really not that difficult to do.
Not something to do when the kids are around. All kids love to paint!
They’re cute. Although I had a few fails and my three-year-old ruined a couple of them before they were dry, I think I would still make them again…Minus the peanut crew. I think these would pair really well with a cook book wrapped in a table cloth (another Pinterest fave) for a shower gift. Just stick these on top.
