Silhouette Creator’s Challenge: DIY Utensils Holder

Well, it’s been an… interesting week, to say the least. I’m not going to get political on this website, because I think the world deserves a little happiness where you can dwell beautifully and not focus on negative things for a little while. What is positive right now? The holidays are coming up! I can’t wait for the Friendsgiving we are celebrating on Sunday and then actual Thanksgiving in a couple weeks. The dining table is a great place to gather with loved ones and celebrate everything you’re thankful for. In honor of holiday meals, this month’s Silhouette Creator’s Challenge is all about dining-related items!

This kind of DIY utensils holder is great for keeping all your forks, spoons, and knives handy at the dinner table or if you’re having a backyard picnic. I decided to keep my on the lazy susan we keep in the middle of our dining room table so we can grab whatever cutlery we need without going back to the drawer!

I love how all of my silverware fits neatly inside. I could even switch out my metal cutlery for plastic ones and bring this canister out to a barbeque or family event. Easy peasy!
