Gold-Dipped Bamboo Serving Set – Homemade Gift DIY

craftsdecor & DIY

If you read my blog with any regularity, you know that I love Anthropologie, but not their prices. So I am constantly inspired by their products, and I love trying to figure out how I can make something similar on my own, like with my Knock-off Anthropologie Heart Pillow and my DIY Polka Dot Mug.

My newest Anthropologie Knock-Off is inspired by this Brass-Tipped Serving Set, which is no longer available but was originally $38 for 2 pieces. I made my version, this gold-dipped bamboo serving set, for less than $10 for a set of 6. Yay for savings!

This would be such a great gift this holiday for a hostess, a friend, or even for yourself! They're super festive and fun, and -- like everything I make -- super easy to make.

Supplies to Make a Homemade Gold-Dipped Bamboo Serving Set

Start by deciding how much gold you want on your handles and tape it off using painter's tape or washi tape. You could also just do it freehand if you'd prefer a less exact line.

Now, just paint your handles with liquid leaf. If you have never used this stuff before, it's totally amazing. It comes in a little tiny jar, but lasts for-ev-er. I have used it at least 7 or 8 times (including on several items in my pink and gold graduation party) and I've barely made a dent in it. It was also featured in this gorgeous mason jar vase craft.

Let them dry completely (and do a second coat if you'd like), peel off your tape, and they're done.

This would be such a great hostess gift, either alone or paired with a cool serving bowl or some pretty dishtowels. Or tie the whole shebang up with a ribbon and give it to your favorite cook.

Hi, I’m Jenn. I’m a freelance writer and editor who lives in central Pennsylvania with my husband and three boys. Yeah. That’s a lot of testosterone in one house. I love decorating, DIYing, crafting, baking, and cooking, and I’m constantly scouring everything I see for inspiration. My ideas can come from anywhere: Pinterest, books, magazines, stores, TV shows, websites, other blogs, other people’s homes, nature. You name it, and I’ve gotten an idea from it. {Literally. I selected the color scheme for our family room from a pocket pack of tissues. Totally not making that up.} I hope to teach others that, if you really pay attention to the world around you, you can get inspiration from anything! I love to hear from readers, so be sure to leave me a comment! Or, if you’d prefer to email me, you can do that too — just visit my contact form. Thanks for stopping by!
