Painted Wooden Spoons

Today’s project comes to you from Pinterest. Painted wooden spoons with a coat of shellac to give them a sort of ceramic look. They were so easy! You should give it a try. Especially if you consider yourself a non-crafting sort.

Here are all of the materials I used:

  • Wooden spoons from the dollar store
  • Acrylic craft paint from JoAnn
  • Sponge brushes from JoAnn
  • Shellac from Home Depot (JoAnn doesn’t have it)

Now here’s the how-to:

  1. Start with some basic wooden spoons.
  2. Tape off the handle with masking tape.
  3. Paint the handle with craft paint. (Get creative with mixing colors. That’s the fun part.)
  4. Give it 2 coats of shellac and peel off the tape.

A few more views because I was having fun taking pictures. Can you tell I like my new succulent?

This was a quick and easy project and I wish I had gotten more spoons! I’m excited to keep some for myself, but they’d also make a great little hostess or house-warming gift. Yeah, I’m a grown up wife now. Look at me talking about hostess gifts.
