Halloween Utensil Holder Tutorial

Hi everyone!  I bet that many of you are scratching your heads and wondering why I would make something for Halloween this early right?  Well, in my defense I guess that I'm getting excited for Halloween this year. Also, this idea can be transposed to a back to school utensil holder if you want :)  Here is a shot of my Halloween Utensil Holder with only the paper elements:

Ok, now on to how to make this :)  First grab a cute piece of 12x12 paper and follow the following steps:

Afterwards embellish your utensil holder however you wish. Then voila!  You have a darling utensil holder that you can embellish for any Holiday!  Wouldn't this be such a fun idea for Thanksgiving?!  Here's one more shot of my Halloween Utensil Holder:

  12. Such a cute holder! You could do this for any occasion. Thank you for sharing it at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great weekend!


  13. Ashley - love this project! Do you have any printed measurements that I can find? I would love to make this, it would be perfect for many different occasions. Thanks!

    1. Hi Gladys! I actually don't have specific measurements. All I did was fold a 12x12 piece of paper. (To be honest it took a few practice tries to get it to look exactly how I wanted it to) If you wanted you could score a line where it folds over to ensure that the sides are even. Sorry that I'm not a lot of help.

  14. Hi Ashely, This is super cute! Love it. Thanks for sharing @DearCreatives party! Hope your having a great week. Theresa
