How to Make a Kitchen Cabinet Recipe Holder

By: Joe Truini

This simple, flip down kitchen cabinet recipe holder made from a wooden clothes pin keeps recipes off the counter and at eye level. Here’s how to go about making it:

  • Cut 1/2″ off one leg of a wooden clothes pin.
  • Drill a 3/16” hole though the long leg of the clothes pin.
  • Insert a short screw in the hole in the clothes pin.
  • Screw the clothes pin to the inside of the frame on a hanging cabinet in your kitchen, so it can swing up out of site when not in use.
