Rustic Utensil Holder

I have been looking for a fun utensil holder for when we have BBQ's or friends and family over for a fun meal.

Display box

I decided I wanted to use some old cedar fence boards to make the box.
Measurements I used:
3 boards @ 4.5" x 13" - for the sides & bottom
2 boards @ 4.5" x 5 3/8. - for the ends

We used a table saw to cut the boards so they were smooth cuts.

My hubby helped by using his pocket hole jig to put it together.

I had some burlap tags that I thought would look good on it, so I free handed some utensil drawings using a chalk pen

I used some bakers twine to tie the tags on some quart mason jars.

I added some fun hardware to the box.

Lastly, I put in the utensils & it's all finished!

It also looks pretty as a display box!
