Pretty up your next picnic or BBQ with painted compostable wooden cutlery! There are so many options these days for eco-friendly disposable flatware – these are made from birch wood, but they also come in bamboo. They’re not only better for the environment, but they’re so much more attractive than disposable plastic cutlery. You can make them even prettier by simply adding a little paint to the handle. I chose to use fluorescent red and orange and gold paint, but you could use any color you like. Once dried, I tied together each setting with some leftover yarn I had from my tied quilt. It only takes a few minutes and would add such a festive and fun detail to any outdoor party you throw this summer!
SUPPLIES: 1. Ecoware Compostable Flatware | 2. Acrylic Paint | 3. Paint Brush | 4. String or Yarn
DIRECTIONS: Paint the handle of each piece of cutlery. Let dry and then tie together each setting with string or yarn.
