DIY Paper Towel Holder

Like many home and craft bloggers, having well-designed everyday products in my home is a luxury I couldn’t do without. When this product is something I not only use everyday, but keep in full view on my kitchen counters, it’s even more important that it be lovely as well as functional.
What you need:
-1″ #6 screw
-#6 flat washer
– dessert plate
– decorative knob
– dowel (mine was 5/8″ wide)
– Viva® Towels
Take your dowel, and cut it down to 13″. Using a ceramic drill bit (ours was 3/16″), drill a hole in the center of the plate. We did this while the plate was submerged in water to cut down on dust production and to keep the bit cool. Don’t forget to place a sponge or other item underneath your plate to protect your sink!
Drill a hole in one end of the dowel, and attach the screw and washer to the dowel.
Lastly, drill a hole into the top end of the dowel. Shorten your knob, if needed, and insert the knob into the top of your paper towel holder, using hot glue to secure it down. More images and step by step instructions are on the blog!
