DIY Painted Wooden Spoon Handles

I know I've been absent lately - life has been crazy busy, but it's about to be crazy not busy {at least that's the plan}, so I should be back in full force within the next few days.  I've missed you girls!  In the meantime, here's a little DIY I whipped up some time ago.  Ever since I moved apartments because of the big flood, I've been trying to update my kitchen.  I've swapped out the bright pink & green accents {from my old place} for a more - ahem - mature palette {at least I think so}. =) I'll give you a hint: It's definitely mint to be!  Can't wait to share more on that later.  Now, onto the DIY...
+ don't forget the wooden spoons {mine are from Walmart}

All you need to do first is decide on the width & color(s) of your stripes, then wrap 2 pieces of tape around the handle the width of your stripe {which you will paint in between for a straight edge}, paint, let dry, remove tape, & repeat as much as you like.  I did a mismatch of various width stripes in 2 paint colors.  

Love & Wooden Spoons,

P.S.: These look great stored in a Ball jar!


  1. Oh my goodness. You told me about the flood in an email, but for some reason I never read the flood post. That's so sad!

    It sounds like you're doing a wonderful job recovering and redecorating! =) I can't wait to see pictures.
