I am excited to share with you today my seventh 12 Months of Martha 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 somehow had THREE boxes of plain white plastic flatware that I have never even opened or used.  

Today I am excited to share how easy it is to paint plastic flatware to make it fun and special in just 15 minutes for your next party or event!

Instructions

  1. Select the paint colors for your plastic silverware.
  2. Using a medium wide craft paint brush, apply paint to the handles of the flatware.
  3. Find a clean place to rest silverware while they dry!
The beauty of painting the handles of plastic flatware is that it doesn’t need to be dishwasher safe.  And it doesn’t even have to be edible safe because we are only painting the handles.

Note : Please do not paint any area near where your mouth would be touching.

Martha Stewarts’s Plaid paints have impressed me from day one.  They have a nice thick consistency that I love.

  1. Hi . I am having a Mexician Festival for about 150 people & thought your painted plastic wear would go over big.How fast dose this dry & what do I lay it on or do I have to hang it on something.?

    1. Oh that would be so lovely! It dries fairly fast, the same speed it would if you just painted a canvas. I just gently laid them on a paper towel as they dried. Good luck.
