Having brightly painted silverware can give you quite the statement piece for your next dinner party. I whipped up these numerical and letter ones that would be awesome to use casually at home or for double duty as escort cards at a larger event. In shocking pink they give the perfect boost of happy for a warm summer day.

To make the painted silverware use a handful of old silver spoons (you can find them very cheap at second hand stores, just be sure to wash well). Purchase a can of perfect edible spray or this easy to use food spray. Attach a small sticker where you’d like to see silver to pop through and spray the rest of the spoon in your favorite celebratory shade.

The spoons look really pretty and guests can actually use them to eat with! After the event the paint washes off easily leaving your pretty silverware to be painted again for another time.
