These darling utensil caddies are perfect for your 4th of barbecues and all summer long! There’s nothing like red, white, and blue decor to make me want to call up some friends or family and invite them for a BBQ or grab the kids and head to the beach for the day. I designed this Patriotic Mason Jar Utensil Holder Crochet Pattern to add this set to our outdoor dining. I put them out on Memorial Day and look forward to using them all summer long!
