|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.
- Using your tape, wrap a strip around the spoon to mark where you want the paint line to stop.
- Take your foam brush and paint, and apply two coats of paint to spoon. Let paint dry completely before applying second coat.
- Clean paintbrush.
- Apply two coats of Mod Podge to dry paint (the Mod Podge serves as a water resistant layer so paint won’t wash off).
- Peel off tape.
- 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!
