5 Minute Project: Upcycled Art Drying Station

I love upcycling and I have had these toddler bed rails sitting in my closet just begging to be used. The idea came to me this morning while I was trying to figure out how to dry the kiddles' art projects without dripping paint everywhere. This is what I came up with!



Materials:
paper box lid
toddler bed rails or step ladder pieces
twine, ribbon, or yarn
clothes pins
hot glue

Place bed rails into the box and balance them against each other so they form a triangle. Tie them together. You could also glue them.


Hot glue a clothes pin near the top of each rail. This is where you can hang pictures.




I originally made this with curling ribbon, but replaced it with hemp cord.

If you want you can string ribbon inside the triangle for an extra picture hanger. This is good for hanging small papers or foam projects.


The box lid will catch any dripping paint, and works for drying wood or clay projects. We painted cans to make wind socks and placed them here to dry.



Decorate your box if desired. I painted mine with chalk board paint so I could write down the time I hung up the pictures/projects.


There you have it. A five minute project that you can use over and over!

Happy Crafting!

  1. Everybody knows that whenever arthritis pain pain starts, you move just a
    little better in case you stoop somewhat. You might know that when your arthritis serves upward, your
    own joints are usually inflamed and that causes the pain.

    together limited herself with a problem that,
    "nipped in the bud", would have changed her expereince
