Upcycled Cutlery Caddy - Recycling At Its Finest!

Take one cutlery or beverage/condiment caddy from HomeSense . . .

Cutlery Caddy Before WM

Add 6 recycled glass bottles, 3 vinyl words (I cut mine with my Silhouette) and one Costco bouquet of Alstroemeria.

What do you get?

A fun way to display flowers and, in this case, a lovely Mother’s Day gift!

P.S. This is the same font that I used for my distressed sign – Biondi!

Thank you to all the hosts!
