Today I am sharing again with you something to create best out of waste, which was made nearly 2 years ago. I love churning out beautiful useful things from unwanted stuff at home. I made this display stand for my bracelets or bangles which really needed some organized place. Now they are so handy and I can choose easily what I need to wear. Hope you like it!
Things needed:
1. Cardboard foil tubes-2
2. Waste small cardboard box.
3. Drawer knobs-2
4.  Foam sheets.
5. Zig-zag cutting scissors.
6. Hot glue.
Step 1. Measure the cardboard box and make a paper cutting for the 4 sides. Mark the position for the cardboard tube for the top.

Step 2. Take empty waste cardboard foil tube and make a hole in the center of one tube and insert the second tube in the first.
Step 3. Once a T-shape is formed, make a hole in the cardboard box in the center. Insert the T-shape into the hole in the box and hot glue it around.

Step 4. Cut foam sheet by placing the paper cutting and hot glue the foam sheet on the box and also on the cardboard tube.

Step 5. Paste the two drawer knobs into the two holes of the cardboard tube using hot glue.

Step 6. For finishing the edges, contrast color foam sheet was cut into one inch wide strips using zig-zag scissors. These contrast color strips were hot glued on the edges.

My bangles and bracelets remain in one place organized and I can quickly choose what to wear! This is a project made with waste materials at home. I spent nothing on this. I had every material at home. Hope you love it and try making it by yourself! If you do make, don't forget to post me the pictures of yours!! I would love to see it!


Today I will share how to make a hot glue gun holder out of waste materials lying at home. It is very useful thing used almost always. It keeps my glue sticks organized and the wire of the glue gun untangled and is a very handy thing for me. I had made it nearly two years back but thought to share it with you all.
Materials Required:
1. Empty soda can
2. Corrugated sheet from an empty carton
3. Wooden clothes pin
4. Duct tape
5. Two wooden dowels/sticks
6.  Cardboard roll from a ribbon or tape
7. Acrylic paint (color of your choice) and a brush
8. Block of wood
9. Scissor
10. Hot glue
Step 1. Carefully cut a soda can using sharp scissor from the bottom. The bottom part will be used to hold extra glue beads or molten hot glue.
Step 2. Fold the edges inwards so that we can hot glue this on a flat surface.
Step 3. Cut corrugated cardboard into 4 rectangle pieces as shown below. Stick them to each other using hot glue gun. This makes a thicker base for the glue gun holder.

Step 4.Then attach two wooden dowels/sticks on a wooden block using hot glue as shown below. Prepare few wooden clothes pins by removing away the metal spring from them and hot gluing them together. The picture below will better explain the method.
Step 5. Duct tape was used to cover the cardboard roll and the edges of the cardboard to give a finishing to them.
Step 6. Everything was hot glued to the corrugated cardboard base made in step 3.
Step7. Using acrylic paints and brush, everything was painted. I love pink color so I used pink. You may use color of your choice.
Step 8. All my glue sticks and glue gun remain organized here and I love the wonderful, useful and handy hot glue gun holder. Hope you like it! If you create yours, do send me pictures!
