What’s the weirdest thing you’ve crafted with? I think mine would be old chopsticks- unused of course!!! So far, I’ve made a trivet and a toilet roll holder with chopsticks. Due to my renewed commitment to blogging (6 times a week, Mon- Sat!), I now have an excess of jewelry to hang up, so I thought, why not an earring stand DIY? No power tools needed!!!
What you need
1.5 pairs of chopsticks (so 3 sticks)- if you don’t have chopsticks, satay sticks would work for this, or you could buy balsam wood at Cass Art or on Amazon
Cut two equal lengths of string, both 50 cm long. Place them together so that they start at the same point, then tie a (normal) knot.
Measure 7 cm from the knot on both strings and mark it with a pencil. Use that as a guide point to tie a tight knot around 1 end of the chopstick. Repeat with the other end and the other string.
Note: I didn’t glue the string and stick and they held but if you’re worried, you can add a dab of glue.
Repeat with the other 2 sticks so that you have 3 sticks parallel to each other.
Now find a place in your flat to hang it up!
Sunglasses DIY in progress- forgive the bald look! Can you tell I’m getting ready for featival season? 🙂 Coachella & Glastonbury, here I come!! 🙂
