Today I am going to share with you a simple tutorial for making some fun No Sew Burlap Utensil Holders! At any get together I hold, I like to display my utensils in a fun way! I can’t handle them just laying on a table! So, when the adorable Sara from Confetti Sunshine, approached me about participating in this Party Hop I decided it would be fun to put together some fun Burlap Utensil Holders that would be perfect at ANY get together or party during the Fall! At first I was going to sew them, but then I quickly realized that it just wasn’t needed! Oh how I love my glue gun – it makes projects like this so easy!
4″ Wide Wired Burlap Ribbon (amount depends on how many you want to make)
Stencil or Vinyl Cutter to create a stencil (I used my Silhouette for this project)
It takes 12 inches of 4″ Wide Wired Burlap Ribbon per Utensil Holder. To start, cut your strips of 12″ Burlap Ribbon. Once you’ve got your 12″ strips of Burlap Ribbon, go ahead and fold it approx 4″-4 1/2″ over at the bottom. Before you hot glue the edges, make sure you have tested out the placement of the utensils you plan on using. I bought these fun wooden forks, spoons and knives, but they are a little on the shorter side. So, just make sure you size your fold with your utensils.
Then go ahead and hot glue along the inside edges! Afterward, you should now have your pouch!
I then used my Silhouette to cut myself a few different versions of the word EAT! I used the vinyl cutouts to stencil the word onto the Burlap using an Elmers Paint Pen! If you haven’t ever played with Elmers Paint Pens, you are missing out! They are the best!
To finish them off, I took some Raffia and tied a simple bow around the pouch. To secure the raffia bow, I attached it with a small dot of hot glue on the backside of the Bow.
I sewed myself some fun fabric napkins (tutorial coming soon) and then placed the folded napkin down in the pouch and layered the silverware on top of the napkin!
Be sure and check out the last of the projects in the Autumn Market Party Hop! Have a great Labor Day weekend everybody!
