DIY Decoupage Coffee Container Utensil Holder
This post contains affiliate links and/or images. I am a mom who feels a bit overwhelmed a good amount of the time. Can you relate? Please tell me you do! I love being a stay/work at home mom, don’t get me wrong. It can be a lot to juggle when you are running a household. You wear a lot of hats, right? Chef, janitorial engineer, nurse, teacher, financial analyst and recreational activities director. You get the picture. If I don’t carve out some “me” time, I may go a bit crazy!
I have two times a day I set aside for myself. When I get up, before the house begins to stir and later in the afternoon. In the morning, I love to sit on the deck and enjoy a cup of coffee, some fruit or yogurt and write in my gratitude journal. In the afternoon, before it is time to make dinner, I like to relax by doing a crafty project. This week, I am working on a super cute DIY Decoupage Coffee Container Utensil Holder!
My brand of coffee I have enjoyed for years is Folgers. It is the coffee my mom drank. It is the first coffee I ever tried. I will admit, I have tried other brands in the past. But, I always come back to my old standby! I have not found another brand that has the rich aroma and flavor I get from Folgers. And I have discovered their latest line at my local Walmart in the coffee aisle. Their Caramel, Chocolate, Cinnamon and Vanilla.line has four delicious flavors. You can choose from
I love to mix it up and have a different one each day. Or, I will combine two flavors, like the Chocolate and Cinnamon. So good! It is so relaxing to sit outside while I listen to the birds chirping. And then sip on one of the delicious Folgers Simply Gourmet coffees. When I drink my Folgers Classic Roast Coffee, I add a bit of sweetener and creamer. With the NEW Folgers Simply Gourmet coffees, I don’t need to add a thing! I want those natural flavors to shine through!
When I am setting up my supplies to make a craft, I like to include a small cup of coffee. It goes hand in hand with my “me” time! I have found I enjoy a cup of the NEW Folgers Simply Gourmet Natural Vanilla flavor. It satisfies my sweet tooth I tend to get around that afternoon “slump!”
My daughter suggested we make a new utensil holder from one of my empty Folgers containers. We have needed one for a while, and making one myself appealed to me.
