• Tell Your Friends

Mother’s Day is always a struggle for me. I always want to get my mom something special but she says she wants a leaf blower or a new filter for something or some kind of tool that I have to Google before I get to the store. This year, I’m putting my foot down and honing my crafting skills. Mom, sorry, but you’re getting something handmade and from the heart. If you’re in the same boat as me, then you’re in luck. We have tons of beautiful, DIY gift ideas that Mom will love, from jewelry boxes to tote bags. And for the culinary Mom, try customized utensils in her favorite hue.

This project is so fast and easy, you’ll want to make a set for all your friends (including yourself). All you need are wooden utensils, craft paint, painter’s tape, a foam paintbrush and a food-safe sealer and shellac. For the paint, I chose to paint each handle a different shade of pink to create an ombre look among the six utensils. You can mix in white paint, however, if you want to create an ombre look on the handle itself. Get the Full Step-by-Step Instructions >>
