3 package of1/4″ Unfinished Wood Dowel Rods
1 – FolkArt Home Decor White Adirondack Chalk Paint
Glue Gun and Glue sticks
Let’s grab your supplies, channel your inner artist, and let get crafting!
Step 1 – Apply the Paint
To start, i grabbed the paint color of my choice and paint the paper mache box. Here i went with that white chalk paint. This allowed the paint to not be so shinny and more of the matte color. Apply 2 coats and let dry completely.
Now it may seem flimsy after painting, but after it dries completely, it will because hard again.
Step 2- Seal the paint
I came in with the Mod podge hard coat to seal the paint and the paper mache box itself.
Step 3 – Creating the Organizer
Once we got to this step, you had to figure out how high you want the organizer to be. I left the dowel rods in their neutral state.
I was able to find that my protein container worked great for the height and gave a nice flat surface on the bottom and top. About 8.5 inches high.
Once you have it leveled and even, start by hot gluing 3 dowel rods on each side. Use the Q-tip to help with the spacing between each rod.
* Now if you want to add more security to the dowel rods, apply a dot of gorilla glue on the surface of the dowel rod and then hot glue to allow it to hold while gorilla glue dries.
Once the 3 dowel rods on each side are completely dry, slowly remove the container out. If this is not removed at the beginning, then you might run into some issues later on trying to get it out.
Step 4 – Finishing the structure
Once Container is moved out and the side dowel rods are still in tack. Here is where you will finish the structure. Gluing all the dowel rods in place! Remember to use the Q-tip to help keep the same spacing between all rods.
Once all are in place and dried, you are ready to start using the organizer. Such a fun little projects that provides much character created by your own hands!! How beautiful did it turn out!!!
