Cutlery Holder

I've had this little basket for a few years now.  I can't recall where I bought it, but we've used it to hold plastic cutlery whenever we have a party.  This year, we left it outside and the elements left it a little discolored.  After I chased all the little spiders out of it, I gave it a quick makeover:
I don't have a before photo but it was kind of a natural wood color.  I gave it the same color I gave our knife block a week or so ago.  I also added a cute little fork, knife and spoon image (from the Graphics Fairy) with some twine.

I think our plastic cutlery will look sweeter in this now thanks to the vibrant color!

So cute! I think we must be on the same wave length, as I just did a post about a project with silverware prints!

These holders are a great idea for parties and outdoors! Love the color. The tag is a nice touch, too!
