Give Mom something practical, beautiful and handmade this Mother's Day by dressing up wooden utensils with a splash of her favorite hue.Kayla Kitts
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.
Once paint has dried, apply a high-gloss, food-safe shellac and sealer to give handles an enameled look. Use and let dry according to product instructions.
Once shellac has dried, remove painter's tape to reveal a nice, crisp paint line. Note: After use, these should be hand-washed.
These chic and customized kitchen utensils make the perfect gift for new brides, new homeowners and moms. Package them with her favorite homemade treats and kitchen accessories.
