Wool Spool Pen Stand

Share

Hello People!

I’m back on track after a terribly long pause. Apologies!! Well, the long pause had to do with some traveling, developing some new ideas and being lazy ’cause its summer and everyone is allowed some laziness. Its a universal rule.

Anyways, I’m here now! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sharing my anti-summer idea…you’ll really relish even the sight of it in winters. It is especially indicated for people buying a lot of stationary and then not being able to spot it when you need it. ย Also you lovely ‘kitchen-ites’, you might find it really handy.

So all you need is an empty jar (jam/yogurt/pickle jar) or any last lone standing glass from your collection can be put to use. Also some wool and an old sock.

It will be great to have the colour of the sock to match with the colour of wool you are using.

 

Cut the sock above the ankle and use it as a sleeve this way…

Insert the jar in the sleeve

 

A snugly fitting sock will be better as it won’t slip over the jar and will hold the wool strands perfectly.

You can cut the excess from the bottom or just fold it up

I decided to fold it up as it will contribute to the intended final shape of the stand.

This doesn’t look bad either!

I started by tucking one end of the wool under the folded sleeve of sock

Go on winding the strands over the jar diagonally

Both ways!

Weave the final strand in and tie a small knot

This is how it turned out

Dress it up a bit by tying a bow using the same wool strand around centre

Looks lovely in the warm kitchen light…holding chopsticks and tea spoons! That’s where it is right now.

 

Well, that was it. Easy, unique and warm!
