I saw this idea on Pinterest awhile ago and thought it was super clever.
And thanks to my crafty and on top of it friend, I was actually able to make this fun project!
A drink holder for everyones water cups!!
This spot in my kitchen used to have a minimum of 10 cups on it at all times!
Funny thing is, there are only 5 children. So why was there so many cups all the time?
That is because they would get a cup out, take a drink, walk away. Then next time they came back, they couldn't remember which cup was theirs, so they would get a new cup and do the same thing.
No more people.
My friends and I got together and made it a craft night.
Wood was 5 1/2" and then we cut it however long we needed, depending on how many cups you want it to hold. I just made mine for my kids because I thought 7 would be too long!
The tiles are 4.25" x 4.25" and I mod podged scrapbook paper to mine. Then added a vinyl letter initial for each kids spot.
My friend did the opposite and mod podged paper onto her board and left her tiles white.
We just used E-6000 to glue the tiles down, the wooden balls on and also to glue the handles on.
Then took them outside and sprayed a matte finishing spray over them all and let dry.
This has worked soooo good for far! No random cups laying around. Even the 3 year old puts hers as close to her spot as she can and then I move it up when I see it. I didn't want it too close to the edge to get knocked over.
Super fun and super easy project to do!!
