Making a rolling pin holder

Hello! I'm still alive -- I'm just mostly on Instagram. (I also changed jobs and have been really busy with that.)

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer!

I thought of a way to make a rolling pin holder for my bakery and wanted to share that with you.

I was looking on Pinterest for ideas on how to store the rolling pins (as I was getting quite a collection for my bakery)--as one does. And I saw this in real life, so then I was thinking of how to make it in miniature.


I used craft sticks, omniglue and paperclips (and paint).



I cut the paper clips so I had the curve part and a little more and then I glued those onto cut craft sticks. Before I glued it, I tested my rolling pin to make sure it would fit and marked the places. 


For one of them, I glued another piece of craft stick on it, but with the other, the rolling pin wouldn't have fit. You can paint it if you want.  I painted one of them. 

And that's it!

Enjoy! And I hope you have a great week!

  3. Your rolling pin holder is a Great idea and your tutorial looks easy to do too!
    Hope that your new job is an enjoyable one, but one is always busy initially when you're the the new kid on the block before you settle in.
