Happy Wednesday Everyone!
It’s beautiful here today and just perfect for a party….a Swing Into Spring Linky Party!
Today is craft day…..drumroll please…….
DIY Picnic Caddy
Isn’t she a beauty.
Patting myself on the back.
Ya’ll know how I love bright colors!
I’m patting myself on the back because this is how the “caddy” started out.
A couple of weeks ago when the granddaughters were at the house for the day…we made a fast food run.
Those girls keep us hopping and there’s never time to cook.
Anyway, I thought at the time that I would do something fun with the drink tote.
It seems a waste to throw it away and I’m all about recycling.
I first spray painted it white.
I thought the tote would break down into a flat box, but no.
I spray painted it as is.
Then came the fun part….adding color.
I grabbed a couple of stencils, brushes, and acrylic paints.
Stenciling is so easy and I never worry about it being perfect.
I put color over color on some of the flowers and just went with it!
I gathered some things from the kitchen to fill the caddy.
I used plastic drink glasses and mason jars to hold the flatware, straws, and flowers…the napkins were on their own!
I planned to buy some colorful solo cups and paper plates and do a full on display on my patio table but the weather wouldn’t cooperate.
I was doing a practice run when I took these photos, not expecting to use them.
But I never got another chance to take photos with the sun shining.
I love my little picnic caddy
