  • Spatula with wooden handle – I found this handy bbq spatula at the dollar store. Any spatula with a wooden handle will work.  Actually, any tool would work.  How about making a personalized hammer!
  • Fine to medium sandpaper
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
  • Paint Pens (I used Elmer’s Paint Pens, however from the reviews on Amazon these paint pens look like they would be great too, especially if you are going to make a personalized coffee mug.

If the spatula has any type of rubber handle carefully cut it off.

Lightly sand the entire wooden handle with medium to fine sandpaper. This will help the paint adhere securely to the handle.

Now you are ready to personalize! I am a huge fan of paint pens. They are a no-mess way to paint. The medium and fine tips allow a child (or adult) to write with paint with great success! They are also versatile! They paint on wood, metal, ceramic, plastic and fabric!Elmers painters

With the paint, pens personalize the wooden handle.

Allow the paint to completely dry (about 15 mins). Once dry add a coat of mod podge to protect the paint.
