1. Gather Your Supplies
Head over to Dollar Tree and grab two bamboo cutting boards, four mason jars, and some rope.
Order a Lazy Susan on Amazon.
These affordable items will serve as the foundation for this creative DIY utensil holder.
2. Secure the Cutting Boards
Using your trusty hot glue gun, attach the long edges of the bamboo cutting boards together.
3. Attach Mason Jars
Take your hot glue gun and attach the mason jars to the cutting board.
Glue two jars, evenly spaced on both sides of the boards.
This gives you designated spaces for different kitchen essentials.
4. Assemble the Lazy Susan
Next, get your Lazy Susan and glue the bottom of the mason jars and the bottom edge of the boards to the center of the Lazy Susan.
This step ensures you have easy access to all your utensils.
5. Wrap it Up
With the structural elements in place, it’s time to decorate. Start wrapping the rope around the jars and boards in a circular fashion.
This not only secures everything but also gives your organizer a rustic, homemade feel.
