Happy Thursday! This week is really clicking along, isn’t it? Today is Day 4 of our Bloggers Christmas Series, so that means today is Christmas Crafts! I think our group has already shown how creative they are and today will prove to be no different 🙂 My craft is really a gift that would be ideal for the hostess of your next party. It’s a Casserole Carrier with Interchangeable Sizes.
I’m fairly certain that we’ve all had mishaps with a dish or casserole we were bringing to a potluck or picnic. I remember one time we were on our way to meet family and friends for a picnic at the beach. I was in charge of baked beans. Because of a certain persons driving skills, the pan of beans slid around on the floor board of the back seat and ended up flipping on its side. Friends, I’m here to tell you that the baked bean smell in my car never really did disappear,,,and I don’t even like baked beans LOL.
Anyway…this casserole carrier should eliminate that problem. This is how I did it.
I was fortunate to find a great piece of wood in the scrap bin at Home Depot for just $5.00. It is red oak – very strong and sturdy wood which shouldn’t warp from the heat or so the HD guy told me. It was a bit too long so I sawed off about 10 inches.
No more spills or disasters on my way to our next potluck or party! The handles are also great because I no longer need to bring hot pads to carry my dish. and the carrier is so pretty it the casserole plan can stay on the carrier and be placed right on the table.
I hope you like my Christmas craft – I plan to make several more of these carriers as gifts for family and friends. So…if you are inviting me to your house this holiday season – you have a good chance of receiving one of these casserole carriers as a gift 🙂
