5 Minute Craft - Entertaining with Customized Cutlery
How To Entertain in Style with Customized Cutlery
You enjoy casual entertaining and creating a unique and beautiful experience for your guests but the expense can be downright ridiculous to carry out a new theme each time you decide to have a get together. That's where this easy and inexpensive alternative will be a fun money saver for you and will help you to maintain your title as hostess with the mostess.
For this particular post I'm sharing how I decorated some wooden spoons for an ice cream party but you can also do entire sets of wooden cutlery with this easy technique.Supplies:
Set of Wood Cutlery or Wooden Spoons
Duck Tape to match your theme - there are a lots of pretty ones here but you can find different options in almost all craft stores
Non-stick scissors - not necessary but they make cutting through tape so much easier!
Cut a length of duck tape to full cover the bottom of the cutlery allowing a little extra at the bottom to overlap. I was able to fit two spoons on each piece of tape alternating them top to bottom (see above).
Delicately cut through the tape directly up the center between each spoon. Wrap tape to the back overlapping as necessary.
Ta da! That's all there is to it. The Duck Tape stays on much better than washi tape and will hold up to guest use and while I have seen and even tried washi tape I much prefer the durability of the Duck Tape.
Here's to entertaining in style while keeping your sanity and some money in your wallet.
What a fun way to jazz up the cutlery. Is there nothing Duck Tape can't do?!? I absolutely love the pattern that you chose too!
I love Duck Tape! I have a box full of different patterns but I always want more. 🙂
Oh my goodness! I didn't realize Duct Tape had such beautiful patterns! I LOVE these!! What a clever idea!
