I like to plan my weekly meals and loved the look of craft paper dispensers but they can be pricey. I decided I could build my own only using scraps and odds and ends I had in my workshop.
Craft Paper Dispenser With Scrap Wood
I ordered my craft paper roll off of Amazon and once it arrived, I dug through my scrap pile to find a piece that fit the depth of the roll. Once I had a piece wide enough I found a doweling that would fit in the center (I ended up using an old broom handle) and a 1x2 that would allow me to attach the finished project to the wall.
I cut them all to the length of the craft paper roll, which was 12.5”
I gave them all a light sand to smooth the rough edges. Then glued the scraps together using wood glue and secured them with finishing nails.
I used bolts for spacers and attached the two pieced with crews.
I inserted the craft paper onto the doweling and secured it onto the “L” bracket with small screws.
I love this project and it helps keep me organized for the week.
