DIY: Anthropologie Inspired Two-Toned Spoons

Anthro’s spoons at $18

Earlier this week I decided to pop-in to Anthropologie to see if they had any good sale items (I do love a good sale!). And while I was there I decided to browse all their home-goods items – I love to “ooh and ahh” over the cute aprons, unique dishes and fun knobs, books and tea towels.


Well immediately this set of wooden spoons caught my eye. I just love the contrast between the wood and bright white handles. But, when I picked them up the price didn’t sit well – $18 for two-toned spoons!? I thought: “Rubbish! I can make those myself for all of $5!” And I did, and here’s how you can make two-toned spoons too!


Supplies Needed: wooden spoons, tape (scotch or masking), acrylic paint (in color of choice), foam paintbrush, Mod Podge.
NOTE: I found all my supplies at my local QFC – you can also go to Fred Meyers and they’ll have them too. The grand total for supplies came to $5.37. 

  1. Using your tape, wrap a strip around the spoon to mark where you want the paint line to stop. 
  2. Take your foam brush and paint, and apply two coats of paint to spoon. Let paint dry completely before applying second coat. 
  3. Clean paintbrush. 
  4. Apply two coats of Mod Podge to dry paint (the Mod Podge serves as a water resistant layer so paint won’t wash off). 
  5. Peel off tape. 
  6. Ta-Da! Two-toned spoons for way less than Antho’ price!

Paint as many as you want in as many different colors as you want – they really brighten up the kitchen and make all your cooking that much more fun!
