Add a splash of color to your flatware in a few easy steps. 
 
I love all the beautiful, bright colors used in weddings now-a-days.  The "dipped" look is such a fun trend, and you can easily customize the look of any bridal shower or casual wedding reception with this colorful wooden flatware concept.  
 
 
Supplies:
foam paint brush 
craft paint in the color of your choice
cup to hold paint 
tape 
wooden cutlery (here is a good resource for this)
 
 
Step One:
Tape around the utensil where you would like the paint to stop.
 
 
Step Two:
Paint two coats of paint below the tape line on the top side of the utensil, and allow it to dry. (At least 20 minutes).
 
 
Step Three:
After the top side is dry, flip the utensil over and paint the back with two coats, and allow to dry completely.
 
 
Step Four:
Once the paint has dried, carefully peel back the tape.
 
 
You can repeat the process for all of your cutlery, and alternate colors if you wish. 
 
 
It's always the little things that leave a huge impact on guests!
