No before pic, sorry; but you’ve seen them a bazillion times! Those big wooden forks and spoons with the carved wood handles. LOVE the big fork and spoon look. The carved handles? Notsomuch!
Here’s how I dealt with those unsightly handles!
So, first of course, I spray painted them flat black.
Then I took a spool of jute twine, smeared some tacky glue all over the areas of the handle I wanted to cover, and started wrapping!
Because the carved parts had raised areas, I had to wrap the lower parts several layers to get the handles covered more evenly.
It really only took about ten minutes to wrap each one. I just glued the end piece down with a bit more tacky glue.
Not a bad update, eh? These guys will be making their public debut soon in my booth at Stars.
