How to Make a Solo Cup Holder with a Maker Holder

With Thanksgiving and Christmas coming I wanted to show you how I made this Solo Plastic Cup Holder with a place for a marker. This Solo Cup Holder will help save on cups and the confusion of whose cup is this. All your guest have to do is write their name on the Solo Cup they choose.

This is a simple project as long as you know how to use a few power tools, and if not, get your hubby to help you!

I am excited to be using this Solo Cup Holder this Holiday season! Hopefully, we won't get overly confused and concerned about "is that my cup?"
