Etceteras: simple toothpick holders

I saw these adorable little toothpick holders on Eat Drink Chic. Amy’s were vintage holders but I thought they’d be fun to try to make.

   Making these toothpick holders is easy.
  • Start with an aluminum paper roll. These are a little smaller and thicker than paper towel rolls.
  • Cut the rolls into 1-3/4” lengths - I used a small hack saw to cut the tubes.
  • Lightly sanded the sawed off edge.
  • Glue a piece of cardstock to the bottom and trim.
  • Wrap the tube in pretty paper and secure with double stick tape.
  • Add your toothpicks and you’re done.

  
Here are my versions.


I chose paper that had a retro or vintage feel inspired by the holders on Eat Drink Chic.

       

Place your pretty toothpick holders in handy locations. By the stove for testing baked goods or in your crafting area for a variety of uses

 
... or at your next party for the hors d'oeuvre platter.
