How to Make Jute Webbing Silverware Holders

Well, the Christmas tree still isn’t decorated. I’m thinking lights look pretty great as a decoration all on their own. I’m not sure why I keep putting it off, but here I am getting ready to show you another non-tree project: How to make jute webbing silverware holders. Now, these particular holders are not exactly Christmasy, so they can be used at other times of year also.


Christmas Place Setting with DIY Jute Silverware Holders-


These are so simple that I am a little embarrassed to show you how. No sewing necessary, though you certainly could if you want. I simply stapled them together!


  • Jute webbing
  • Stapler & staples
  • Scissors
  • Nippers (if using buttons for embellishment)
  • Embellishments of your choice
  • Hot glue gun & glue

Cut your jute webbing about 14 inches long. I cut an arch on one end and a different little diddly on the other.


How to Make Jute Webbing Utensil Holders-


Place your silverware on the strip to determine how far up you want to bring the fold. Staple along each side. Or hot glue. Or sew. Your pick- I chose the quick and easy way.

Now to jazz them up a bit. I made burlap roses for mine and added vintage buttons. If you want to go more specifically Christmas, try some snowflake ornaments, jingle bells, etc.

If you use buttons with shanks, you’ll need to remove the shank so they will lie flat. I have found that nippers work great. I think that is what they are called. Anyway, here is what they look like.

I stuffed a short piece of tulle inside to soften the look.

What do you think? These would be fun to use as small gift or gift card holders, too. Place them in a basket for a buffet style family dinner.

  1. These are darling Sheila. I know they are an older post and you must miss your creativity these days. Hope all is well. Cheers!

  2. Fantastic Sheila…and I can just see it being done for every holiday occasion…love it!!

  3. Your silverware holders are simply elegant! Happy to be ‘touring’ with you 🙂

  4. This looks great! I usually hot glue but forget I can use my stapler on some projects! Thanks for joining us on our Craft Showcase!

  5. That’s such a fun idea, I have to tell you every year I say I am going to make some of the cute flatware holders and a never do….hopeless I know 🙂

  6. These really pretty and I like that they can be used for so many different occasions! Hmmm, I’m planing a baby shower and you just gave me something to think about, thanks! And why sew when a staple will do! ; )

  7. LOL! Sheila you are so funny. I never would’ve thought of just stapling these together but you pulled it off! It’s a great idea for someone who doesn’t have a sewing machine or just doesn’t have time to sew. They turned out great, and I love how you can use them for more than just Christmas! 😉

  8. Sheila, what a cute idea and it seems really easy except for maybe that rose part!! I think trees look great with just the lights….so you’re good!

  9. What a wonderful idea! I want to copy this for my next supper club. I know my friends would love it and it adds such a unique touch to each place setting.

  10. Great idea, Sheila! I love them with the tulle. Such a great idea for a buffet, too. Easy for guests to pick up their silverware as they make they way around the table.

  11. These are so cute! I adore the embellishments! Thanks for sharing! You’ve been busy!
