Determine Paint Line
Apply painter's tape to each wooden utensil (Image 2). If you want the painted handles to be precise on each utensil, then mark the height with a ruler and duplicate.
Using a foam paintbrush, apply craft paint to the handle of each utensil. Allow each utensil to dry in an upright container. Add more coats if necessary.
