Doily and Paper Utencil Pockets

{Paper utencil holder with doilies and washi}

Little touches make a big difference at a holiday dinner.  And that's a good thing too, because I'm much better at little touches that big giant productions.  These silverware pockets are quick and inexpensive, and can be customized to fit any color scheme.

Here's what you'll need:
4.5 inch doilies
Brown packing paper cut 9 x 4 inches (I got my roll from the dollar store...you could also use grocery store bags)
Twine (also from the dollar store!)
Tape or washi tape
Glue stick

Fold paper strip to make a 3.25 inch wide pocket.
Secure with tape.
Place doily on the front of the pocket and food back the bottom and sides and glue.

Tie twine around the pocket.

Add a strip of washi tape for some extra color if desired.
Add silverware.

What simple ways do you have for dressing up a table?
