Did you know that Kool-Aid juice drink is now available at Walmart stores in a new ready-to-drink 96 oz. bottle? This is perfect for the warm weather to have on hand for cookouts. Ready-to-Drink Kool-Aid is also a great option to quench your thirst, to #KoolOff with on a hot summer day and even better it’s a great way for your family to skip drinking soda.

My husband has been drinking the Ready-To-Drink Kool-Aid to help him reduce his soda habit and luckily the ready to drink bottles come in his two of his favorite Kool-Aid flavors, Grape and Tropical Punch but if you’re looking for something different you can get it in Watermelon as well. With drinking all of this Kool-Aid though we have an abundance of the bottles leftover so I decided to take one and upcycle it into something perfect for the warm weather, barbecues and dining outside. I took one of the bottles and turned it into a silverware caddy for parties and cookouts. I even took it a step farther and decided to make it fun so that it could be decorated easily for any occasion with chalkboard paint. Since I was on a Kool-Aid kick I decided to use Kool-Aid packets to dye an old t-shirt to make the decorations that adorn the caddy. I now have a really cool Kool-Aid party accessory and a husband drinking much less soda.

Wear gloves for this or you will end up with very colorful hands.

I used Peach-Mango and Cherry-Limeade Kool-Aid packets to get these colors.

I used an old cotton t-shirt for the material.

I colored the tops of the cardboard black to match.
