In today’s modern home, many homeowners still prefer to use old-fashioned cookware and cooking methods instead of opting for the more convenient and efficient versions that are available today. The problem with this is that cooking utensils can quickly become cluttered when not stored properly, making it hard to find what you need when it’s time to get dinner on the table or prepare breakfast in the morning. Luckily, there are plenty of DIY kitchen utensil holders you can make yourself, so all you have to do is decide which one fits your style and needs best!
1) Wooden Wall Holder
For a simple but attractive holder, try cutting slots out of an unfinished wooden plaque. You can even make them in matching colors for a coordinated look in your kitchen. It also works if you live in an apartment and need to keep things on display but don’t want to drill holes into walls (and pay for new ones). This is just as practical and attractive as it is decorative. Just measure how wide your utensils are, then take into account how far apart you’d like them spaced, then measure the plaque accordingly. Make sure they match up with measurements on both ends of each side of the wooden plaque so that it’s stable enough to hold up your utensils without tipping over!
2) Up cycled Tin Can Caddy
This kitchen utensil caddy is made from tin cans. If you find yourself accumulating lots of tin cans, look no further! This DIY project not only looks cute, but it’s functional as well. It’s perfect for holding your cooking utensils near your stove. There are many shapes and sizes of can out there, so take advantage of them all! You don’t have to buy a bunch of new supplies; use what you already have at home. Besides a pair of scissors and a drill (if you want to attach it to a wall), that’s all you need! Get your can collection started now because once they’re done they’ll look great in any kitchen setting. You can also switch up colors and materials if paint isn’t your thing.
3) Lego Blocks
Let’s face it, kids and adults alike just can’t get enough of these colorful little blocks. And while Legos have been around for ages, they’re not in any danger of going out of style any time soon. In fact, there are countless ways to incorporate Lego blocks into your kitchen—not only to entertain kids but also to give you a fun way to stow away all those knives and spoons (and in some cases, even wine bottles). There are tons of DIY designs out there.
4) Hanging Ladder Pot Rack
Though it doesn’t require any power tools, you will need a drill for hanging purposes. This project is all about using gravity to hold your utensils. All you have to do is mount a pair of strong hooks on either side of your kitchen island and use a ladder as your rack, with each rung holding one or two spoons or spatulas. The result is eye-catching and highly functional—especially if you want to keep your handles from getting covered in fingerprints and dirt from everyday use.
5) Pots And Pans Pegboard
A simple way to organize utensils and kitchen tools is to hang them from a pegboard. Drill small holes in your board, then attach hooks using strong glue or screws. Be sure to space them evenly so that you can easily see and access everything. Once you’ve got your hooks in place, just hang up all of your utensils!
