License Plate Beverage Carrier

8 Materials
1 Hour

Because guys like to have cool things to carry too…

This beverage carrier is perfect for BYOB barbecues, summer get-togethers, baseball watch parties, Father’s Day or any occasion!

Who knew one cedar fence post and 2 old license plates could make such a fun DIY?! I used one Cleveland Indians and one traditional license plate because that’s what Edward had in the garage. I personally kinda like the mis-matched look.

  • Drill 2 – 1/2″ holes into both side pieces (before attaching plates & bottom piece)
  • Using a staple gun, nail the plate to each side piece
  • Drill the bottom piece to underside of side pieces

Taking 2 strips of leather, pull them from the inside out and knot the first hole.

  • Run strips through eye hooks
  • And back through second hole. Knot to secure.

Add a bottle opener on the side to complete the functionality of the carrier.

I opted to paint and distress the wood pieces and stain the dowel rod.

Add a few bottle of his favorite beverage...

Pretty darn cool.

And off he goes with his beer in tow!
