DIY Upcycled Striped Utensil Holder

A friend of mine, Rasy, asked me for tips on how to make a knock off of these utensil holders she loved.  She wanted the look without paying full price. I raided my craft room, gave her some tips, and gave her most of the supplies. She texted me her project, and it turned out beautifully! So today, I want to share this easy DIY upcycled striped utensil holder made from vases Rasy found at a thrift store.

Time: 30 minute plus drying time



This project takes a little bit of time because you want to wait a minimum of one hour in between coats. Rasy found a couple cylinder shaped vases at a thrift store. His shape is ideal for painter’s tape application and straight lines.

Tape off the vase with painter’s tape. Use the edge of a credit card to smooth over the tape to ensure no bleeding.
