DIY- Gold Glitter UTENSILS

 Hi babes- Today I'm sharing a super easy DIY project.This is one of the DIY projects I'm working on for my Benefit BEAUTY BASH I'll be hosting later this month. (AH- I'm so excited). I plan on sharing as many as the DIYs that I do so that the other hostesses can have ideas for their parties and of course, whoever else wants to use my ideas.
This idea came to me from a picture I saw on Pinterest. The link went to an etsy shop that was no longer in service and I was super bummed because I thought it was a great idea and would be a awesome bonus to my Benefit party... so of course I just decided to take the plunge myself and DIY them! This is SUPER easy and if I can do it, so can you. Let's get started!

All you need is some utensils, mod podge, glitter and a small paint brush. I picked up all these from Wal-Mart and it was all pretty affordable. I'd also recommend using a spray glue to help seal the glitter after you apply it to the utensils. To avoid a mess, grab some paper to place under each utensil while you sprinkle glitter on it. This also helps save the extra glitter.

Grab your first utensil and apply the Mod Podge on the handle. I wanted to make the glitter take up most of the handle, but left a little room at the end of the spoon just to be safe. Using a brush to apply the Mod Podge helps keep the glue where you want it and make the whole utensil look a lot nicer. When applying the glue, try to make it be an even coat so you won't have clumps. 
Then sprinkle the glitter all over the handle. I waited a few moment to let it all settle and then I lightly tapped the handle so the extra glitter would fall onto the paper. I repeated the above steps to the backside of the handle and then touched up any spots that lacked glitter. Once I had glitter where I wanted it, I hung up the utensils to dry and then applied a few coats of spray glue to them to help reduce the amount of fall off later on.
I know this was a super easy DIY but I think it really adds a special something to regular plastic utensils. You can use these as actual utensils or just use them as decoration- either way I think it will add a super cute touch to any party. I know I can't wait to use them at my Benefit Beauty Bash! 

Thanks for stopping by- let me know if you're here and you're also hosting a Benefit Beauty Bash. xoxo
