I am excited to share with you today my seventh #12MonthsofMartha project, DIY Painted Plastic Flatware. I’ve had this idea in my head for some time and I was finally able to take a few moments to make it happen. We just made a big move from NM to IL and after unpacking all our boxes, I realized I had THREE boxes of plain white plastic flatware that I never used. Today I am excited to share how easy it is to paint plastic flatware to make it fun and special… so you can actually use it!

Ready for the steps on this DIY? First, paint your flatware handles.
And that’s it. The beauty of painting the handles of plastic flatware is that it doesn’t need to be dishwasher safe. And it doesn’t have to be edible safe.
After you use these cheerful DIY Painted Plastic Flatware, you can throw them out! (or hand wash for another use)
There is something about these bright colors that makes a meal just a little more special.
Martha Stewarts’s Plaid paints have impressed me from day one. They have a nice thick consistency that I love.
