When I found the Sucre Shop on Etsy, I fell in love with their customized wooden party cutlery, especially the adorable chevron spoons (the owls were a close second!). I was trying to think of how I could DIY this myself since I knew I’d need at least 50 forks for Jacobi’s first birthday party. I found a good deal on wooden forks over at Susty Party, picked up some washi tape and set to work. This DIY is so easy that anyone can do it! And it’s so cute. How fun would these be not only for a birthday party, but dinner parties, tea parties, Valentines Day, holidays and other fun events?! It’s really easy to customize with whatever washi tape you choose.

- washi tape
Step 1: Gather all your supplies
Step 2: roll washi tape along the handle of the spoon/fork, being sure to make it even, then cut to the desired length. I usually have to take it off and lay it flat again to make it perfectly centered.
Step 3: cut around the corners and at the narrower parts of the spoon/fork to make the tape completely flush with the utensil.
Step 4. Press firmly to secure the tape, and voila! Adorable utensils for any occasion.
