My oldest daughter wanted a compact rotating make-up caddy. I found this one on Youtube that was made with items from the dollar store. I sent her the link and she liked it. The store we went to didn't have all the necessary items so we improvised on a few things. It still came out nice. These are our supplies, not everything was used.
Those roses are tea lights that are L.E.D. and they color change. She dipped them in silver glitter for a more "fancy" look, according to her. It was very simple to assemble. We did have to cut out one of the dividers from the shelved containers so she could store her foundation bottles on it. If you click the picture it will show you a short video with it spinning.
The small side shelf was made using the lids from the containers. Here she has it with her makeup in it. The thumbnail is a clickable link to see it spinning with all her stuff in it. She sent it to me from her phone so the quality isn't as nice as what my phone can do (her's is an older phone).
|Music on it is loud, sorry.|
I thought I could make one for my pencils, extra crochet hooks, and things that I use frequently on a spinning base. I would have to make it smaller though to be able to fit on my desk. Ooh, I can add a small candy tray to it! The ideas are flowing. All together we spent about $15 to make these two organizers. I have an elevated candy bowl I'm making using a glass candlestick and bowl. It will most likely hold random stuff like half filled shuttles, or balls of thread, or maybe just candy/snacks. It's pretty big, 7 inches in diameter.
