DIY Plastic Dipped Wooden Spoons

Add some grip to your wooden spoons with this plastic dipping tutorial. Only takes 15 minutes!Oh you read that title right! Plastic, not paint, dipped spoons! I recently came across plasti dip and have been obsessing over it ever since. So I decided to put it to the test to give my wooden spoons a bit of a grip, as well as some color, and it only took a few minutes. Here’s how:

Time: 15 minutes + ~4 hours dry time
Materials: plasti dip, wooden spoons, plastic cup

Add some grip to your wooden spoons with this plastic dipping tutorial. Only takes 15 minutes!It’s important to work in a well ventilated area, preferably outside, when working with this stuff because of the fumes. I bought the clear can so I could make a variety of colors, but you can also buy a can of one solid color to save a bit of money.

You don’t really need a lot of the plasti dip, but since you need a certain height for the spoon, I recommend that you buy a very narrow plastic cup or even a tube so that you waste less.

Add some grip to your wooden spoons with this plastic dipping tutorial. Only takes 15 minutes!Tint your plasti dip with the kit paint. I started with yellow so that I could make an orange when adding red. Dip your spoon in the cup and slowly pull up. Let dry/dip for about 30 seconds then dip again. You can build up your grip as thick as you want by repeating this process, but I was happy with about 2 coats. Once you apply the last coat, let dry over mixture for about 60 seconds and then place upside down in another cup to dry.

The can says to let sit for about 4 hours for dry time, but I left mine for 24 hours just to be safe. And just like that, you’re done!

Add some grip to your wooden spoons with this plastic dipping tutorial. Only takes 15 minutes!I love how colorful these are, yet I don’t have to worry about them chipping or fading over time like paint dipped spoons. Wrap these up in a tea towel and give for Mother’s Day this weekend or even as a hostess gift for the next party you attend!
