I bet you never thought about using a flower pot to hold your kitchen utensils! This project is so easy. It won't take but a few minutes. This is the perfect utensil holder. It won't burn if you forget and leave it sitting on the stove. It won't tip over and it holds a lot of tools! You can custom match it to your kitchen decor.



Just get a 6 inch clay flower pot and paint it any color you wish. I recommend enamel paint because it makes clean up from kitchen splatters easier. It may take more than one coat because the clay is very porous and absorbs the paint. Let the paint dry. Then you can apply decals. If you are artistic you can paint on a design. If you prefer, you can use a stencil. Use your imagination.


This craft would make a cute wedding shower or housewarming gift filled with all kinds of tools.

This is a Depression glass Hobnail cookie jar. I either lost or broke the lid. To make it still useful I use it by the stove as a utensil holder. I have the habit of just grabbing another wooden spoon instead of rinsing it off. So if you find a bottom half of a cookie jar at a garage sale, think about reusing it this way. It's handy :)
