We were headed to a housewarming party over the weekend, and I wanted to come up with a special gift to give the lucky new homeowners! While I was at Homegoods, I came across a pack of wooden utensils and snatched them up!
Once I got home I knew exactly what I was going to do with them, so I got started! First, I got my alphabet stamps and a permanent marker and began to spell out each utensil name. I colored over each letter with permanent marker and quickly pushed onto the utensil, repeat until completed. Next, I used a small piece of painters tape to tape around the bottom of the utensil, each one at different lengths. I then grabbed my Martha Stewart metallic craft paint and began to paint the bottoms of the utensils. I put them upside down in a mason jar to dry. I coated them a good 3 to 4 times for a solid coat. Once completely dry, remove the tape.
To dress them up a bit, I bought a white dish towel, tucked them into it and wrapped a piece of twine to secure. I also included a yummy Summer Berry Cheese Pie recipe! And there you have it, a fun and simple housewarming gift! I’m going to make us a set of these because I thought they were just darling! I love the painted tips < 3
