Soup Can Super Bowl Deco

Just in time for this weekend’s big game, here’s some upcycled decor from Drugstore Divas.  They created a foot-ball themed utensil holder from an empty soup can!


The divas started out with your basic can of soup.  After washing it and removing the label, they cut some thick, high-quality brown paper to fit around the can.  Lines of white paper glued onto the brown mimic the classic football stitch.  The paper was attached with hot glue to the can and–score!–it’s a handy football-themed utensil holder for your Super Bowl party!

Upcycled Oatmeal Box

Eliza of Eliza K hates to throw things away that might come in handy later.  Case in point:  the empty oatmeal box that she’d been keeping.  One day she realized that it might be the key to fixing her crowded utensil drawer.

Sure enough, Eliza turned that oatmeal box into a handy countertop holder for some of the cooking utensils she uses most often.  It’s hard to tell this used to be a humble oatmeal box–this container looks pretty enough to have come from a fancy kitchen store!

This is a super simple project with an easy-to-follow tutorial at Eliza K.

Painted Plastic Utensil Holders

Amanda from Crafts by Amanda is a girl who loves to cook and bake. With that passion comes bahoodles of kitchen utensils that were taking over Amanda’s drawer space. Luckily Amanda’s a girl with a plan… and a case of plastic beanie baby boxes she received from one of hubby’s co-workers.

Plastic Beanie Baby Boxes

With some craft paint, her trusty Silhouette, and old tablecloth fabric, these containers are now housing slotted spoons and wire whisks instead of stuffed horses and penguins with cute little names. Smile This is a great project for upcycling all those containers you just can’t throw away. (I know that’s not just me!)
