School Supply Caddy

I came across this idea on The Crafters File Box blog. I loved it, and it was perfect for our school table. I did exactly as she described. I purchased a lazy-suzan from Ikea – for $7.99. I stopped at Target and bought 4 pails from the Dollar Spot. (I already had 4 more at home). Then, stopped at Walmart for red spray paint - $.97. Voila! I painted the lazy-suzan white and the pails red. I screwed each of the pails to the lazy-suzan and filled it with our school supplies. I was able to fit 8 pails on mine. (I could probably have fit 1 more small pail on if I had made them touch.)

I plan to make one of these for Emma to keep in the game room in her “craft” area. And, now that I think about it – I may need one for my sewing table! Hmmm…
