The ombre trend in both fashion and design has been climbing for years now, peaking last year and not slowing down anytime soon. I think we all thought it would slowly die out come fall just like any other spiking trend, but it’s only gaining more popularity, particularly this week*. People are ombre-ing everything from cake frosting to maxi dresses and we’re in full support of this. I mean, why not showcase every glorious shade of your favorite hue? I jumped on board the ombre train early last year by spicing up my long, brunette locks with dip-dyed tips. Now, I’ve taken the trend into the kitchen by painting my bamboo cooking utensils alternating shades of pink. I can’t get enough!
Looking for more ways to bring the look home? Here are eight ideas you’ll love.

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 >>
