Picnic caddy.1

This is my second project for the IKEA + $10 Challenge I participated in for Studio 5. With warmer weather hopefully approaching soon I’ve been thinking a lot about all the outdoor eating we do as a family. You will find us enjoying most dinners and even lunches out on the deck. I wanted to make something that would make Summer dinner prep a little easier so a picnic caddy seemed perfect.

Please forgive me for lack of pictures, I forgot to take some of the steps. I bought the tin buckets at Target for $1 each. Then I used my Cricut to cut out the cute chalkboard labels. I used a chalk marker to write on the labels. I also spray painted the lazy susan with a great color I had on hand. I thought it would be perfect for Summer.

I glued the buckets to the lazy susan using about 1/2 stick of hot glue each. They could also be screwed to the lazy susan. I will probably go back and do that. The center can is a large food storage can. It isn’t adhered to the lazy susan so it can be exchanged with a pitcher or something else depending on what you want for that meal.

I have a trick I do when I don’t have enough flowers for the container size. I place a smaller vase inside the larger one and place the flowers inside the small vase. It contains the flowers and looks better.

Add the picnic paraphernalia and you’re ready for the perfect outside meal. Come on warm weather, we’re ready!
