Day 1: The Washi Tape holder



Day 1

Day 1 of crafting with PVC pipe.  I figure I might as well start off with a bang.  I made this washi tape holder for myself using a piece of scrap wood, some hooks and some .5" PVC pipe.   

It was a pretty easy project.  I simply cut the pipe in approximately 1ft pieces.  I used a piece of peg board to measure out where my hooks needed to go and then I drilled holes for each of them.   


The hardest part was screwing in the hooks because I had to do that by hand.


After I screwed in all the hooks, I wrapped rubber bands around the ends of the pipe so they wouldn't come loose easily.  Then I separated the washi tape by color.  Oh and I added a piece of almost every pattern of washi tape I have to the side as decoration.


Lastly, I covered the whole thing in mod podge so my washi tape border would stay in place.  Currently, I have this resting on my easel in my crafting nook.  Eventually, when I have the space, I will hang it on the wall so I can always see it and it's glory and it will be out of Dexter's reach since he loves messing with it.

And that concludes Day 1.
