Wrapping Paper Ribbon Wall Rack

Please welcome our guest poster today, Alissa of www.33shadesofgreen.blogspot.com.  She's sharing how to make this...

Wrapping Paper & Ribbon Wall Rack



What you'll need:
- 36" x 24" open back frame (Mine came from Hobby Lobby and was 1/2 off)
- (5) 28"-48" cafe rods ($2.99 each @ Hobby Lobby)
- spray paint
- mounting hardware for frame
.
The cafe rods came with brass hardware that I wasn't too crazy about.


So my first step was to spray paint the ends of the rods and the included hardware.  I used Krylon in Dover White.


Before:

And after:


Much better, don't you think?
.
To paint the rods I stuck them in the ground so the spray painting would be easier.  I think my neighbors may have wondered if the rods were a new, permanent fixture!


Here's the open back frame I used:


Next, attach the mounting hardware to the back of the frame.


Attach cafe rod hardware to the front of the frame.


That's it!
.
Here's the frame hanging in my craft room:


And here it is with wrapping paper and ribbon:





I think it would be fun to do this with a smaller frame and use it to only for ribbon.

Thanks for reading - I hope you enjoyed this project!

  2. It is a super solution..I haven't any space to hang one and have more paper rolls than that anyway so I guess mine will remain in the corner.
