If you walk around the mall or peak at Pinterest you may have noticed a new trend in the color—neon brights paired with natural hues. I’m loving the juxtaposition of the heavily saturated hues with organic textures. I thought I would bring a little neon into our kitchen so I painted the handles of wooden kitchen utensils.

There were really easy to make and only cost a couple dollars. Here’s what you’ll need to DIY:

• Masking or painters tape
• Wood kitchen utensils (I got all of these bamboo utensils at HomeGoods for a couple dollars)
• Acrylic paint in neon colors plus white
• Paint brush (a small foam one works great)

Place a piece of tape around the handle or wherever you want the colored section to end. Use the white paint and paint a base coat on the wooden utensil. Allow this to dry completely (if you’re impatient like I am, use a hair dryer to dry it in seconds) then paint the white area with the neon paint. You will need to apply 2-5 coats of the neon paint, depending on the color.

This would be a great, super affordable gift to give! I think it would make a lovely host/hostess gift, or a great house warming gift. Happy kitchen crafting!
