Lazy Susan Supply HolderSaturday, July 21, 2012
I've been feeling the urge to be crafty - but not the all day, spend hours on something crafty. I just needed a quick fix. And since school is right around the corner (le sigh) I made something quick and easy that solves a big problem for my teacher desk.
I have too many supplies that I like to keep on my desk (wish I had a picture) I'm totally one of those people who if they put something in a drawer it never sees the light of day again. So my pens, pencils, scissors, etc. need to remain within eyesight. My desk currently has about 3 pencil cups along with a plastic caddy thing that holds remotes, hall passes, and other paraphernalia. So I needed something to wrangle it all together and be pretty at the same time.
I love it. A fun pop of color while being totally functional. How do you make it you ask?
1. Buy a lazy Susan (why is Susan so lazy?) I got mine 10% off at the Container Store for $14.36. Probably could have gone a cheaper route but I was really stuck on having at least six buckets on my turntable and this was the first I could find that was big enough...13" if you're wondering.
2. Buy some metal buckets from the Dollar Spot at Target. $7 total.
3. Slap some scrapbook paper on it. I used some tape to hold it down, nothing fancy.
4. Arrange your buckets.
5. Fill and enjoy!
I can't wait to take this to school to fill with more goodies like post-its, paper clips, and what not. Not bad for $20 bucks and a couple minutes of time.
Have you done any quicky crafting lately? Tell me about it!
