Pretty stuff to make: upcycled wooden utensils

Tightwad loves this project because it’s fun and a great way to brighten things up in your kitchen… and can be a upcycling project too! If you find wooden utensils at your local thrift shop, or are upcycling existing ones that you already have, boil them for about half an hour to sterilize them. Then, tape off where you want the craft paint to go up to on the handles, set them in something so they can dry upside down, and pick your colour! Once they are dry, use a non-toxic shellac to seal the paint. Finish off the project by conditioning the unpainted portion of the utensils with mineral oil to keep them in great condition.
