A few years back, I was fortunate to have spotted one that happened to go with my decor. My kitchen has an African Island theme so some items are easy to find and some are not so easy. Well I figured my chances of finding something similar this time around would be a little slim--and certainly wasn't worth the store-to-store hunt--after all it's a holder for recycling grocery bags! So you probably know what's next? Yes, I decided to make one.
Yesterday morning I took a look around the kitchen and thought: no--no palm trees. Besides, that was the motif on my old holder and I have a few trees in my kitchen already, such as the print on the wall.
Then I decided: no--no monkeys. I already have a few scattered here and there.
So I made the decision and here's my holder!
Quite tribal looking wouldn't you say? To maintain the shape of the mask even when I have a low supply of bags, I inserted an empty oatmeal container in which I had taken off the lid and cut off the bottom. So now I am back to collecting bags for everyday use! Hooray!
