DIY Chopstick Rest

DIY Chopstick Rest @themerrythoughtWhile I was trying to come up with some easy, last minute Christmas gifts last month,  I stumbled across a picture on Instagram of someone eating sushi and resting their chopsticks on a little chopstick rest. I loved how sweet they looked and I instantly wanted to try to make my own chopstick rests! You can make these in under an hour (excluding drying time) and the design options are endless! I always try to use chopsticks and I’m not quite a pro at using them yet but if you know anyone that is, these would make a perfect and quick last minute gift.
