Have you ever thought you'd make something on the cheap and it ends up costing more than you bargained for? Here is a DIY art project direct from the dollar store won't break the budget, and you'll serve up some serious style for your kitchen walls. Char from Crap I've Made came up with this inexpensive craft project using supplies from the dollar store that anyone can execute quickly and easily. Just spray paint a frame and some plastic flatware, wrap fabric around the frame backing and mount.
This idea is so simple and inexpensive, not to mention completely customizable. You can switch up not only the colors and fabrics, but also the utensils. Go dainty with old specialty silverware like shrimp forks or grapefruit spoons, or more industrial with thrift store hand mixers or graters.
