I’m all about using a cute utensil caddy, but when hosting over 50 people for the Patriot’s Palooza Memorial Day Party, I decided to go with my own DIY Patriotic Utensil Holder.

I tried to keep it as cute as I could, but I needed a size that would fit plastic forks and spoons for a small army.  I upcycled a couple Kleenex tissue boxes – they were the perfect size!

It didn’t take long – a few pieces of scrapbook paper and a few little embellishments and some Mod Podge.

I used plain paper for two of the sides, and decorated the other two sides.

This is an easy enough craft for the kids to do.  After looking at the picture, I will probably add a little paper to the inside to lift up the forks a bit.  And glue down that last corner LOL!

Love, hugs, and sticking a fork in it.
