An easy and inexpensive bridal shower gift that will leave a bride-to-be with some much-needed kitchen supplies.
I’m not sure why, but whenever I’m invited to a bridal or wedding shower, I have this desire to do something homemade. It usually ends up stressing me out, and I wish that I had just bought something instead.
A few weeks ago, I was invited to a double-bridal shower for two of my dear, freshman roommates. These girls are some of the sweetest and most fun girls I know, and I was so excited to attend! A few days before, Forrest said, “You aren’t going to make anything, right?” and at that point, I wasn’t. However, as I started looking at Pinterest, that desire to create snuck up on me, and a little while later, I had grand plans for the gift. I wanted something that was useful and fun, but wasn’t too expensive.
To make this you need:
1 white poster board
1 poster board in matching color
1 pot holder (with front pocket)
2 matching dish towels
1 matching dish cloth
Chip and dip bowl (Found at dollar tree) or something similar
Variety of kitchen supplies and tools — I used: Slow cooker liners, method dish soap, air freshener, spatula, vegetable scrubber/peeler, spoon rest, kitchen scissors, cookie mix, cream of mushroom soup, and jello
I went to Target and the Dollar Tree to buy all this stuff. The dish towels happened to be on sale, which I was so excited about because they were SO cute. The oven mitts I bought are my favorite kind that my mom bought me last year. The slow cooker liners were bought there as well, but everything else came from my own pantry or the Dollar Tree!
First, open your dish and fold it in half length-wise. Lay it on top of the white posterboard and cut it to be approximately the same size.
