Materials
- Plastic crate
- Tarp or drop cloth
- Spray paint
- Thin wooden dowels
- Shears
- Sandpaper
Instructions
1. Set the plastic crate on the tarp or drop cloth, and thoroughly coat it with spray paint. Wait for it to dry.
2. Take one of the dowels and use the shears to cut it so that it matches the width of the crate while resting in the holes.
3. Sand the end of the dowel to remove any splinters.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for a second dowel.
5. Thread your favorite rolls of ribbon onto the dowels. Place the dowels inside the crates so their ends are sitting on the holes in the crate.
6. Pop a pair of scissors through one of the top holes in the crate to create a fully functional ribbon station.
