Painting Neon Utensils

Sometimes you need a "just for fun" project. You're walking around Target on a Saturday afternoon with little to do with the rest of your day and you see these bamboo kitchen utensils and decide that they would be better with neon handles. That doesn't happen to you? Must just be me then...

These are so easy, they don't really warrant a walk through, but I'm so nice that I provided one anyway!

You'll begin with ordinary bamboo/wooden kitchen utensils. 

Using painter's tape, tape off the ends that you want to paint. Make sure to get a straight line, and each one is around the same size of painting area.

Using any color craft paint (I used neon orange, pink, and chartreuse), paint the ends of each utensil. At first, this will seem like it will never cover, but several coats later and there you have it. I did around four coats, I believe. Remove the tape and let dry completely before using. 

Now, these obviously aren't dishwasher safe, but very fun.

Enjoy cooking with your pretty new spoons and spatulas! I might make a few more of these, and they would make lovely housewarming gifts!

I love this, can't wait to try it on my utensils! Thank you for the idea!

These are just so cute and fun. I want to do this to match our lime green toaster!
