Recipe Holder

Hey everyone! This is a project I did forever ago and then promptly forgot about it until I was cleaning up my picture file. So, I thought I'd share with you my....wooden block recipe holder!

This was a fun and super easy project. I found this leftover piece of wood in my husband's scrap pile and put a coat of white and then some ASCP in country grey on it.

I sanded down the edges so the white would show through and then took some twine and braided a strand together about 6-8 inches long. Then, simply hot glue to the back of the block.

I also took a clip, painted it white, sanded and stained it with my Stayz-on ink, and hot glued it to the top of the block.

The burlap is a scrap that I used some spray adhesive to adhere to the wood.

And ta-da! A recipe holder for you! You can hang it up or simply set it on the counter if your block is wide enough. This makes a great little gift for a friend or family member. I hope you have fun with it! I can see some pictures on this as well....oh the possibilities!


  1. This is great! I will have to make a couple of these for some upcoming wedding showers.

    Just started following you. If you get a chance, I would love it if you stopped by my world at

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I'm thinking I could make mine either with a little easel back or some other flat bottom for standing since I don't have a wall. What I really need is a bungie cord that drops down from overhead holding my recipe.


  3. Ha, Bliss, I love your bungee cord comment! I don't have a wall, either, but I'm thinking this would be great to hang on a cabinet knob as needed on those rare occasions when I cook. Thanks for the idea, Meg, will have to give it a try! :)

  4. I love this! Such a great idea, and so practical!

    Hope you'll link this up on my blog link party going on now. Would love to have you join in the fun!



I would love to hear from you!
