What you'll need:
- A set of wooden kitchen utensils
- Semi-gloss or gloss paint in a color of your choice
- Cardboard box
- Paint tarp
- Assorted nail polishes
- Painter's tape
What you'll do:
Tape the flaps of your cardboard box together at all four corners.
Cut a slot for each utensil into the top of the box. This will be where you place your utensils while drying.
Stir paint well. Place a clothespin at the top of your utensil before you dip it into the paint. Gently dip the stick end into the paint, making sure to dip it far enough into the paint to cover 3/4 of the handle with paint.
Remove the utensil from the paint and slip it into the slot you pre-cut into your box with the clothespin lying on top. Be careful not to touch your handle to the box. Allow to dry at least 48 hours.
Once dried completely, use your painter's tape to create a pattern of bands in various widths.
Paint the exposed bands with nail polish colors of your choice.
Allow to dry another 48 hours before using.
