Create a creepy Halloween Silverware Holder using a pot holder.
You can have lots of fun with this by using various creepy crawlies and creatures to embellish the holders.
For a Halloween party, the pot holders make a great favor for the guests to take home and use.
They are inexpensive to make as I found the bag of 36 creatures for $1 at the Dollar Store,
and the pot holders were 2 for $1.
Have fun being creative with the bugs!

How to Make a Halloween Silverware Holder.
1. Remove the tags from the pot holders.
2. Turn a pot holder so there is a corner at the top and a corner at the bottom.
Fold the 2 side corners to the center and slightly overlap them.
Use a large safety pin to secure the corners together, pinning from inside the pot holder.
3. Wrap a black napkin around the silverware and slip it into the holder.
4. Embellish the holder with the bugs and creatures.
You can attach the bugs with a dot of hot glue, but I just laid the creatures on the holders as I knew the recipients would be using them as pot holders.
Any extra bugs can be scattered around on the table.
Instead of using a safety pin to secure the corners, you could sew a stitch or two to hold the corners of the pot holder in place.
