Today’s DIY project is
a. Free ( I loveeee free stuff)
And the results are stunning, here is the proof 😛
The silverware/cutlery holder is repurposed Mortan salt containers.
If you remember my previous project DIY Mason Jar Dispenser, I used the top part of the containers. After using it I didn’t feel like throwing away the rest. They were lying in the garage from very long time, some of them were used , rest were desperate for attention 😉
So, for this project all I used is a hemp cord that matches the dinner placemats(DIY Dinner Placemats)and some Elmers all purpose glue and covered it with patience. It took little long as the hemp cord is thin, however if you use jute rope twine it would be quick.
So,here is the pictorial tutorial:
There are few other ways you can use them.
1. The very first container saved was converted into toothbrush holder for our guest bathroom. I covered the cardboard container with self adhesive sheet and put a plastic cover. And it looks perfect 🙂
2. And then, after few months, I saw a tutorial on how to convert a food can using scrap fabric. So, this time I covered it with fabric agin using Elmers glue and use it as pen holder for our office/craft desk. I love it too 🙂
3. The other way I used is covering it with scrap yarn and made a multipurpose holder for my dresser.
Isn’t it a fun project to use up things that would otherwise be thrown away. And also easy to customize and match to any occasion and trust me your guests will be impressed 🙂
