Supplies you will need

I found this handy bbq spatula at the dollar store. Any spatula with a wooden handle will work. 

You will also need

  • fine to medium sandpaper
  • scissors,
  • mod podge
  • foam brush
  • Elmer’s Painters paint pens.

How to make a Personalized Grill Spatula

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

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

3.  Now you or your child are ready to personalize! I am a huge fan of these Elmer’s Painters. They are a no mess way to paint. The medium and fine tips allow a child to write with paint with great success! They are also versatile! They paint on wood, metal, ceramic, plastic and fabric!

Paint markers

With the paint pens personalize the wooden handle.

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