If you are having a party and need a fun utensil carrier, this one’s for you!
Take an unused drink holder and escalate its look with Washi-tape. If you are unfamiliar with Washi-tape, it is an easy-to-use tape that tears easily and comes in a variety of sizes, colors and patterns.
If you are having a themed party, you could definitely scale it to fit your theme. You could also bring to a family picnic and involve the kids to help decorate.I got this roll at Target for around $10 and had plenty left over afterwards for other projects or utensil holders.
I just started wrapping tape around the entire bottom third of the holder. I then wrapped the tape around the top third.Then I wrapped around the top of the handle twice, cutting slits at either end to fold in.I covered the little center, upper area next. Then I started filling in any “naked” areas with the thinner, pink-striped and black polka- dotted tape.Then I placed a small vase of flowers in one opening.
And then filled with utensils and napkins.Like I said, you can get pretty creative with this with the Washi-tape choices. Plus, you can use for other things besides utensils, such as condiments, water bottles, etc.
