No Sew Burlap Silverware Place Setting Holder…

Hi everyone! The holidays are upon us and I've been getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Most all of our family functions have a large number of people, so I always serve the food buffet style. The table leading up to the food has a stack of plates and a basket of place setting/silverware holders. I try to do something with the silverware that's easy, so each guest can just grab and go…they'll have a napkin and the utensils all in one.

Here is my latest project…it's shown here on a plate, but mine are usually in a basket filled to the brim. At the time I was taking the pictures, I hadn't finished all the holders.. so I'll update this post when my holders are filled and ready to go!

This is a no sew project, so great for anyone to make…

I found this roll of burlap at Michael's in the 75% off section, so only a couple dollars. It has 10 yards!!

It's about 4 inches wide and the long edges are finished so there is no fraying.

I cut my pieces 11-12 inches long, so I can get 30 holders per 10 yard roll.

Just fold over the short edge about a 1/4 inch and hot glue. This will prevent fraying and give it a finished look.

Do both short ends.

Fold up one short edge to meet the other and hot glue each long side (left and right) together.

This will create your pouch for your silverware and napkin. If you cut your strip longer, you can fold up the bottom edge only part way and have a longer back for the holder.

If you are setting your table, you can place one of these on each plate and add a hang tag with your guest's name on the tag for a place card.

Add berries for Christmas…

This project only takes a minute or so to make each one. I need 40 for Thanksgiving and that pile of holders is done, just not filled yet. I need to make another 20 for a big Christmas party I'm having, so I better get gluing!!

I also did a post a long time ago on several other silver where holders. Here is one picture from that post that I made from paint chips cards!! Click HERE to see so much more in that post.
