Since I'm in a crafty mood today, I decided to come up with a new DIY project for a mobile holder for my desk, I tend to dump my mobile around and keep shifting it if I have my notebooks or need to write something. So I decided its about time to get my mobile a place of its own. I know there are a lot of funky and cute mobile holders out there to buy, but I just love creating my own stuff, with just a few supplies and mainly your toilet paper rolls this would make an ideal recycle project!
This stand is cute and customizable, you could decorate it any way you want or even match your desk or home office theme! Also cute for teens and would also make a great personal DIY gift.
What you will be needing for this project:

Washi tape

1 toilet roll

4 push pins

    Cute and simple. I do wish you had used colored pushpins for the photos. I had to look really hard to see if you had done anything other than just make little doorstops out of them. I plan to make and use one in our family room for the tv remote, which is almost the same color as the end table it sits on. Other than the pen holder, what other little things did you create that day? Best wishes 😇

    What keeps the mobile phone from falling over? It looks top heavy in the holder.

    Did you weight it down with anything? How do you prevent it from falling over. My phone is pretty heavy

    I dont see how this is of any value. it does not actually "hold" the phone in place unless I missed the part that keeps it stable.

    No. My phone is too heavy for this light weight cardboard. For $1 at the Dollar Store I got an adjustable plastic stand for any size phone laying on its side or upright and holds the phone securely. Now I don't lose my phone in the kitchen or my desk.
