Diy -> Glitter Flatware

Dec 1 , 2012

Hello my lovelies!!! I am sorry it has been a little while :( It has been a little cray cray here lately but worry not my loves because today is a special day! Not only is it a Saturday ( a day in which I never post anything) but today I have got a gorgeous, glitter filled DIY for you! The insanely talented Jenny at Oh Happy Day has whipped up the perfect Diy just in time for the holidays.

Supplies you will need:
Wood flatware
Glitter paint (Jenny recommends using Martha Stewart Crafts Antique Silver)
Paint brush

Wrapping materials:
Wood berry box
2 sheets of parchment paper
Wire twine
Pinking shears

Use a sheet of wax paper or freezer paper to cover your table before you paint. Start with one layer of paint on the bottom of the handle. Let dry for 10-15 mins and add another layer. Repeat until you have 3 or 4 layers, depending on the amount of coverage you would like. Jenny painted both sides of the flatware and let each side dry overnight before she started wrapping them.

Jenny wanted something simple to wrap them in that could easily be reused by the recipient. These wood berry baskets are perfect and can double as storage for these glittered babies until they get used. For the filler, take one sheet of parchment paper and fold it into fourths lightly, don’t press your creases. Cut 1/2 inch strips with pinking shears. Jenny used a full sheet to fill the basket. Sort the cutlery by placesetting. Cut four 1″ wide strips of the second sheet of parchment paper. Cut each strip in half and wrap each placesetting. Tie with ribbon or wire. Place the wrapped sets in the filled berry box. Cut a four inch wide strip of parchment paper and wrap the berry basket. Tie with decorative ribbon. Jenny also said it’s a smart idea to make a bunch all at the same time (save on dry time) and give as gifts to your next dinner party or just give them to sparkle loving friends. It’s guaranteed to brighten that next batch of leftovers they have to bring to work.
