DIY: Dip-Dyed Wooden Spoons

March 20, 2012

When it comes to simple yet satisfying paint projects, I love to transform basic, everyday objects with a hint of color. These wooden spoons are the perfect example.

To do this yourself, I recommend using Golden Fluid acrylic colors. They dry quickly and come in a wide range of rich colors. See our sources for beech wood spoons and paints below.
