Summer means grilling and picnics outside! To help keep all your spices, rubs, and other condiments organized next to your grill, make this fun wood organizer. You can paint it any color you like, and customize it with a logo or message that is special to you. I designed this caddy so it can be used two ways. I like setting it longways next to the grill so the top can hold larger bottles or even be used as a rest for utensils. However, it can also be placed with the arrow pointing up if you have a tighter space or just not a lot of room next to your grill.
- Walnut Hollow Mini Crates (3)
- Walnut Hollow Arrow Signboard
- Wood Glue
- Spray Paint
- Printable Tattoo Paper
Step one: Stack the mini crates and use wood glue to glue them together. Use wood glue to attach the arrow sign to the crates. Let the glue dry completely.
Step two: Spray paint the crates and arrow barnyard red (or whatever color you choose!). I used a spray paint with a built in primer, so it only took two applications of paint to quickly cover all the surfaces.
Step three: Here’s my little trick for quickly adding an image to a wood surface: use printable tattoo paper! I first showed you how to do that in THIS tutorial. I’ve attached the image that I designed if you want to copy it and use it. Print the image on the tattoo paper, follow the instructions on the pack to adhere the glue, then transfer the image to the wood surface. You can seal the image with a spray on sealant.
Once you’re done grilling, you could always move this caddy over to the patio table and use it to hold salt, sauces, or other condiments. Have fun grilling and serving in style!
