Handmade goods are great gifts for any occasion. They are a simple way to show you care and most people will love that you put a little sweat into it. (Literally, I did this at 7pm and it was around 85 degrees, so there was a lot of sweat that went into these!!!) Everyone loves the classic wooden spoon, so what better way to gift a set than to add a little flare to them with spray paint!
This is the easiest, chicest DIY you’ll ever read. All it takes is a pack of wooden spoons ($3 at Walmart), a can of spray paint, old newspaper, and Scotch tape. And maybe an old pizza box. So basically just a bunch of stuff already lying around your house.
I love all things gold so that’s the color that I chose. If I do this again, I would love to play with bright summery colors. Pink, orange and yellow would be too cute!
I tore a sheet out of a magazine, that just so happened to be in Spanish, and taped it tightly around each spoon. If you have masking tape or blue painter’s tape you could skip this step.
I sprayed one side, let it dry for about 20-30 minutes and then sprayed the other side. I may have also giggled a little because I just love gold spray paint.
If you have a clear coat spray paint, I would suggest spraying it on top to keep the paint from rubbing/scraping off. But that’s it! Unwrap your beauties and admire them. I love the way they turned out! I was this close to adding glitter. It still seems like an excellent idea.
If you try this DIY out for yourself, post pictures below so I can see them! I’m dying to see some neon pink ones!!
