DIY: Dipped Servingware

I recently did a super simple DIY and I wanted to share it with you. But first, a little disclaimer. This is not an amazing idea I came up with. It’s something that everyone has been doing lately and I just jumped on the bandwagon. And I’m okay with that :) Sometimes you just gotta try things out for yourself!

Has everyone been noticing these awesome painted servingware floating around on Pinterest these days?

Love the pastel colors. Pinned here. Found here.

These are for sale if you don’t want to make your own. Or if you want vintage wooden spoons. Pinned here. Found here.

Love the stripes. Pinned here. Found here.

I have even seen some done with regular silverware, also super cool…

I love how they don’t match and yet, because of the paint, they do :) Pinned here. Found here.

So what’s a girl to do? Well, duh! I had to make my own :) I really don’t think there is anything as simple as this project. If you can open a can of paint, you can make these.

First, I bought some salad utensils at the Dollar Tree. So, um, ya, they cost $1 for the set.

Next, I opened my can of paint and dipped them in. The hardest part was having the patience to wait for them to dry :)

I haven’t gotten a chance to use them yet but I can’t wait. I know I won’t be able to wash them in the dishwasher but since they don’t get used regularly, I don’t really care. Besides, they only cost $1! Wouldn’t these make a really fun DIY gift? I’m thinking I might have to go get some more so I can have multiple colors. Or stripes. Or zigzags. Or polka dots. Or all of the above :)

So head down to the Dollar Tree and get your own salad utensils and start dipping. Your salad will thank me!

In other news, I have been doing some spring cleaning here at my house and so I have been updating my shop with some stock that I would like to clear out. In an effort to do this, I have put these items on clearance! In the 5 years that I have had my Every Jot & Tittle shop I have never had a sale. So this is earth shattering people! Most everything is on clearance and most of it is 75% off. Once these items are gone I won’t be making any more of them. Plus, I am also adding some other items that I have found while spring cleaning and I will be adding more as the weeks go on as I continue cleaning things out. Things like garlands and such from parties I have thrown. Everything is marked really low so be sure to head over and get yourself a treat :)
