While I linked to these materials that you can get on Amazon, I was able to get all of my materials from a quick trip to Wal-Mart, including the fabric, where there was an amazing selection of coordinated fat quarters. You can also find fabric fat quarters at Joann’s or Michaels (be sure to use a coupon!).
- Measure the handles of your utensils and the part you want covered by fabric. Be sure to include some overlap.
- Cut your fabric to the size you measured. Mine were 5”x3” strips.
- With the foam brush, apply a thin coat of matte Mod Podge to the section of each utensil that will be covered by fabric. Wrap the fabric around each handle, ensuring there are no air bubbles. Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes.
- Apply two more coats of matte Mod Podge to each handle, allowing to dry 10-15 minutes in between coats. Allow to dry 10-15 more minutes.
- Apply a thin coat of hard coat Mod Podge. Allow to dry 10-15 minutes.
And that’s it! The majority of the project is actually the drying time, so it’s an easy and low-cost DIY project. Who would you make these DIY fabric-covered wooden utensils for?
