DIY Gift Caddy

Kathleen is the crafter behind Snowdrop and Company – a DIY craft blog for parties, holidays, gifting, and home décor. She loves repurposing and reinventing the ordinary and thinks every day is worth celebrating. We stumbled across her blog and fell in love with her DIY projects. When we found out she was located in Toronto, we knew we had to ask her to share her talents with our readers.

If you’re on the lookout for a useful and modern hostess gift, this original DIY caddy is the way to go. Simply purchase a wooden utensil caddy (try places like Target or antique stores) and give it a cool geometric facelift.

Step 1: Use a ruler and a white pencil crayon to draw the triangular outlines. The size of your triangles will vary with the size of your caddy — for this one, we simply divided the length into five segments and had the tip of each triangle fall at the halfway point of the height of the caddy.

Step 2: Adhere washi tape along the edges of the second and fourth triangles.

Step 3: Prime the triangles with the gesso primer. Let dry.

Step 4: Finish the triangles with a coat of white paint and peel off the washi tape. Let dry.

Step 5: Tape the outlines for the remaining triangles and repeat steps 3 and 4.

Step 6: Repeat on the other side of the caddy if desired.

Fill your completed caddy with some tasty treats such as bottles of soda and savoury bread sticks for an impromptu end-of-summer picnic in the park, or create the perfect hostess gift by filling it with a candle, tea towel and napkin set.
