Have & Make: Dipped Wooden Utensils

I’ve been eyeing some fun colored enameled serving spoons for the better part of a year. When I was out searching for a paella pan a few weeks ago, there were a ton of wooden spoons sitting at the register and I just decided to paint some myself.

I just taped my line, used a little craft paint, and finished off with a high gloss food safe shellac to give them that enameled look.

Small side note, however, you should hand wash these, as any wooden kitchen accessory and be mindful of the painted area if using them to cook as it could melt or chip.

I love it because it can be customized to any color you could want! Wouldn’t this be such a fun bridal shower gift?

Have a HAPPY HAPPY Wednesday out there, guys!

    I was just introduced to your blog from Victoria and I am in complete awe! Can’t wait to follow along from now on, I am so inspired by your hard work and ambitions! Also, need to make these wooden spoons – so simple + stylish!

    I just love following your blog E and plan to get to work on this project this weekend!

  3. Rebecca - A Daily Something February 29, 2012 at 9:32 am #

    Gosh, I’ve wanted to do this for a while. Great job with the spoons, and the styling! :)

  4. Caitlin @ Hardly Housewives February 29, 2012 at 9:41 am #

    Possibly you are reading my mind. This is perfect timing for me – my best friend is getting married and I wanted to give her a big bowl from the registry and fill it up with some handmade items. Painted/dipped/somehow-colored wooden utensils were first on the list but I wasn’t sure where to get started. Thanks… I’ll keep you posted on how they go!

    • Erin February 29, 2012 at 11:06 am #

      Yes! I would love to see what you come up with!

  5. Anna @ IHOD February 29, 2012 at 9:42 am #

    These are fantastic! The styling of the project is perfect too!
    Would love to try this as a wedding gift.
    Just saw on Vmac that you are from Columbus, OH! I grew up in cincinnati and columbus! OSU!

    • Erin February 29, 2012 at 10:36 am #

      Yeah! I love meeting C-bus people!!

  6. Michelle Henderson February 29, 2012 at 9:51 am #

    ERIN. I love them!! Doing this this weekend!!!!

  7. Jae February 29, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    super cute.

  8. viv February 29, 2012 at 10:27 am #

    Love this little DIY!
    Found you via vmac+cheese and am now following :) Your BTS story was incredibly inspiring – go Erin!!

    • Erin February 29, 2012 at 11:05 am #

      Thank you, viv! I’m glad you hopped over!

  9. Erin | Holtwood Hipster February 29, 2012 at 10:37 am #

    Just stopped by for a read after being introduced to you on Vmac + Cheese. Looks like you’re a girl after my own heart. It’s no wonder we share the same first name too. I’ll definitely be back Erin!

  10. Erika February 29, 2012 at 11:06 am #

    Great idea! I think they would be perfect as a hostess gift or mothers day gift… Maybe tied up with some pretty flowers? It is inspiring me for spring!

  11. Grace - Stripes & Sequins February 29, 2012 at 11:34 am #

    I love this DIY… what a fun project! Thanks for sharing. (Found you from vmac+cheese, and adding you to my reader, pronto! xo

  12. victoria | vmac+cheese February 29, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    Duh, another awesome DIY!!!! Love it. Thanks for BTSing today. Your post was amazing!

  13. JENN February 29, 2012 at 11:54 am #

    These look great! What a fun way to brighten up plain old kitchen tools. I’m loving this series, btw. :)

  14. Carrie February 29, 2012 at 12:34 pm #

    First, I wanted to tell you I saw a bathroom wallpaper that looked just like your twine stamp wrapping paper and I thought of you.

    Second, great interview on Vmac+Cheese. I didn’t know you are learning floral design. I’ve owned 2 very high end floral shops. I bought the first shop without ever having done floral design. Best way to learn is to get into a floral shop. It is a demanding business- constant deadlines and perishable product- but it is also very rewarding. Everyone loves flowers and you get to be a part of other people’s big life events. If you ever need tips or tricks, don’t hesitate to ask.

    Third, when you have a baby, you’ll instantly become a baby person.

    • Erin February 29, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

      Carrie – we have to talk! I really do want to get out there into a floral shop and do some work in the industry at some point.

  15. The Yuppie Files February 29, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

    Also introduced to your blog via Vmac & Cheese- loving this idea! Really cute!

  16. Dene February 29, 2012 at 1:55 pm #

    Great DIY Erin, I’ve been meaning to try this one for a while. Perhaps a weekend project in the making! I also popped over and checked out your BTS – very inspiring. I’m from Cape Town originally so if you ever need any suggestions, give me a shout! – Dene {www.gloss-white.com}

  17. Kate February 29, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

    Just came over from Victoria’s blog, Loved your bio! This is such a great DIY project, I will be trying this one FOR SURE!!!
    P.S. I totally relate to having a Martha Stuart obsession :)

    <3 Kate

  18. Emily February 29, 2012 at 4:24 pm #

    Such a fun and easy project – I wish I’d though of it! I love the colors your picked, too.

  19. Laura February 29, 2012 at 5:55 pm #

    Popped over from VMac because I absolutely love your story and your drive to publish such a great blog with what sounds like an insane schedule! Glad I did, because my sister would totally love this project… can’t wait to share with her and read more!

  20. Dee February 29, 2012 at 5:55 pm #

    Just popped over from Victoria’s blog. This is another instance where I’m like ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ Such an amazing, easy and stylish DIY idea. Thanks for sharing! x

  21. Ruth @ My Love Wedding Ring February 29, 2012 at 6:40 pm #

    very cute!!

  22. Kasey February 29, 2012 at 7:18 pm #

    These look awesome!! I totally want to make some pretty colored wooden utensils now. I really loved your interview at Vmac + Cheese. I feel like I learned so much about you! I was super impressed with your story of how you put yourself through college and also appreciated that you said you don’t rest and relax. I don’t do much of that either and people always think I’m weird! Glad to know I’m not the only one who prefers a craft or cooking project as opposed to just sitting on the couch :)

  23. Drew {Coral Cafe} March 1, 2012 at 12:35 am #

    Oh I just love this!!
    Just read your post over at V&M and you seem to be one incredible woman with lots of passion, love and wisdom for what you do and will become!
    Good Luck with your new business venture! I’m sure you will be nothing short of successful <3

  24. Molly March 1, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    These are fantastic! I’ll have to make some as a housewarming gift for a friend who’s about to close on her first home! Great interview at vmac, thanks for being so honest, I think it makes the rest of us feel human :)
    I’d love for you to come link your craftiness up at my *Get Creative* party
    Hope to see you there!

  25. Mackenzie March 1, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

    Is that safe? If you don’t cover all the paint with the clear varnish, or if the varnish isn’t food safe…the high temperatures on your stove… I’m not sure about this.

  26. bmerry March 1, 2012 at 12:30 pm #

    I haven’t read all the comments, but MILK PAINT is food safe. You can buy it premixed or as a powder.


    • Erin March 1, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

      Thanks, Brooke! That is a great resource!

  27. I just found your blog via Poppytalk’s mini-handmade roundup and I am so glad I did. These wooden spoons are beautiful; I can’t wait to try this myself!

  28. Emily @ NewlyWife March 1, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    What a great idea! Really love the paint colors, too.

  29. B March 1, 2012 at 9:46 pm #

    I’m not usually a DIY person mostly because of time and effort (baby). This is so inspiring though, not too hard and using things I already have!

  44. funkytime May 4, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

  45. Gail May 18, 2012 at 9:19 am #

    Try making these with liquid rubber, found in hardware store or marine supply store. Water resistant.

    Nutribullet is designed for personal use only. The motor maybe strong but if it really is employed each and every minute it can blow the motor, thus
    in the event you would like to do smoothie business you need an
    industrial type blender, not the NutriBullet.
    With that said, that is certainly why the cups are small for “Individual Use Only”.

  55. DIY | Pearltrees - July 8, 2012

    […] Have & Make: Dipped Wooden Utensils | House of Earnest I’ve been eyeing some fun colored enameled serving spoons for the better part of a year. When I was out searching for a paella pan a few weeks ago, there were a ton of wooden spoons sitting at the register and I just decided to paint some myself. I just taped my line, used a little craft paint, and finished off with a high gloss food safe shellac to give them that enameled look. Small side note, however, you should hand wash these, as any wooden kitchen accessory and be mindful of the painted area if using them to cook as it could melt or chip. When spring rolls around, I start thinking a lot about weddings, and this year is especially prone to these thoughts because we have several good friends tying the knot. I’ve noticed, however, that there are a severe lack of manly favors and goodies out there. So whether you’re bachelor party bound, or just getting in the Derby spirit, here is a fun little flavor infused bourbon for your spring. With bottles supplied by Specialty Bottle (at just two bucks a piece), I bottled my own Mint infused bourbon, and for kicks threw in some homemade simple syrup. Together they make a great Mint Julip with minimal headache – everything is already included, so all the recipient had to do is pour over crushed ice. First, bruise and crush about seven sprigs of mint into a vessel which can tightly close. […]
