Up-Cycled Drink Caddy.

I’ve had this idea in my head for over a year and thought today was the perfect day to show you dears.  Saturday is May Day and this would be a nice surprise to leave on a friends doorstep, no?  And guess what?  I even have another FREE download for you!

Gather your supplies:

  • 1 kraft drink carrier (I got mine from Sonic after taking the children for some slushes during happy hour)
  • 4 clay pots
  • alyssum plants (or whatever kind of flower you like)
  • “HELLO!” banner (download below)
  • card stock
  • 2 bamboo skewers
  • fabric

The steps couldn’t be more simple.

Download the banner + print on card stock. Cut, then tape bamboo skewers to the back of the banner.

Plant alyssum in clay pots.

Add pots to the drink carrier.

Wrap fabric around the drink carrier to cover the restaurant logo. Once the fabric was around the carrier, I simply hand stitched the raw edges together to secure.

And that’s it!  A sweet box of flowers all ready to make someone smile.
Speaking of smiling…I’m headed out for the weekend with my mom + sister sans kids.  Can you believe it?  No potty breaks every ten minutes, no diapers, SLEEPING IN!  It’s going to be a great weekend, I just know it.
