How to make a craft caddy with PVC pipe

PVC pipes are useful for many things, from a laundry hamper to a caddy to hold craft supplies such as scissors, markers and sequins. This tutorial uses 2 1/2-inch PVC pieces as holders, but you may choose whatever height and diameter you desire. Use shorter pieces for pins and wider pieces for ribbon or pom-poms.
A craft caddy is the ideal crafting-room accessory, but it's also handy to pull out when children want to draw or color. Use the PVC to hold crayons, colored pencils and washable markers.

Instructions
1. Start at one end of a PVC pipe, and mark off 2 1/2 inches. Continue marking at 2 1/2-inch intervals. Do this for all the piping.
2. Put on the work gloves, and use the pipe cutter to cut at the 2 1/2-inch marks.
3. Place protective sheeting on the work surface. Don the face mask. Ventilate the area.
4. Spray paint three cut pieces yellow. Let them dry, then remove them from the sheeting.
5. Spray paint the rest of the cut pieces light blue. Let them dry, then remove them from the sheeting.
6. Arrange the yellow PVC in the center of the lazy Susan so the pieces are pushed together. Glue them in place.
7. Arrange the rest of the PVC pipe pieces around the yellow ones, pushing them together so they're flush. Glue them in place.
