DIY Utensil Holder {Dollar Store Craft}
Nov 172014
 

Don’t you love cheap crafts that can be made with items purchased from the dollar store? I think those are the best- they cost only a few bucks to make, but the finished product often looks like you spent a good deal more! This DIY Utensil Holder is very practical and also looks quite chic- you would never know that it was made from an old can of crushed tomatoes… Shhhh! :)

During this time of year, I’m always on the lookout for easy, affordable Christmas gifts for neighbors, friends, etc. and this DIY Utensil Holder is a really cute option. You could customize the Utensil Holder with a personalized label with the recipient’s name on a piece of burlap. Oh, and you could give the Utensil Holder with a set of basic wooden spatulas inside, which cost only a few dollars at Walmart- how cute would that be?!

Ok, let’s get to this really complicated tutorial, shall we? 😉

Supplies Needed:

  • old can of crushed tomatoes (I like the crushed tomato cans for this craft, because they’re bigger than many of the other cans)
  • Black nylon rope (I purchased mine at Dollar Tree, but you could find rope in all kinds of colors and sizes at Home Depot)
  • Hot glue

Directions:

Using hot glue to keep the rope attached and tight, start wrapping the rope around the can. Every few inches, add another dab of hot glue to keep the rope attached to the can. Make sure you push the rows of rope into each other so the finished product looks neat and tidy. Use another dab of hot glue to attach the end of the rope to the can.
