DIY Silverware Holder

 We have a pretty large family, so when we have family get togethers we definitely have to use plastic utensils. I always end up putting the silverware in a plastic cup, and always hate it.  I decided to make something more practical for the occasions.  I didn’t want to spend much and actually this cost me $0. YAY!

I ended up using a scrap piece of wood, cans I had saved, a left over piece of leather for the handle and burlap I had leftover from another project.  I think it turned out pretty cute for all the “leftover” craft supplies.

I decided to do the main colors I have going on in our kitchen which are Tiffany blue and red.

I sprayed my pieces, then glued them on the wood.  I used little nails to attach my leather strap on top.

I decided I didn’t want it to be all once color so I added burlap and a little red ribbon to tie it in with my kitchen.

Can’t wait to have a family get together to try it out!

A place for my aprons

I didn’t have a good place for my aprons to hang at our new house, so they ended up in a bin in a cupboard.  I realized how much I don’t use them down there, so I was determined to find a place for them to hang.

Our basement stairs are right across form our kitchen, so I decided they could find a home in the basement hallway.

I just used command hooks (love no holes in the wall when I can get away with it). I also cut some removable vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo that said “Let’s Bake!”.  I love how cute it looks and I defiantly use them more!
