Pot holders are the new placemats this month at Dollar Store Crafts! After Care did her fabulous week of pot holder crafts, I have come to the conclusion the the humble pot holder is the untapped material of dollar store crafting. Heather at My Frugal Family sent me a link to her amazing and adorable kids’ apron made of a pot holder and a dish towel, and it could not be cuter. Make a few of these for all your helpers to wear while you do your holiday cooking and baking! [click here for the pot holder apron tutorial]

Check back tomorrow for another great apron idea (for adults!).

Project Estimate:

  • Pot holders, 2 for $1
  • Dishtowel, $1
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1

Total: about $2
