I have wanted one of these for a really long time and even though it is only about $10.00, I knew with it being round, I didn't really have a place to hang it. So, my solution was to make one for cheaper than $10.00 and also one that could sit on a shelf!
I started with this 4" craft wood from lowes: (It was around $4.00)
I cut down the strip of wood into (4) 12" pieces. These are some of the other supplies you will need:
Next, I glued one of the pieces to the other with the liquid nails and let it sit until it set up, then I repeated with the other two pieces.
(Psst. I was very proud of myself for letting it set up because I am EXTREMELY impatient when it comes to craftng because I get sooooooo anxious to see the results... its a horrible weakness!)
Once I had two sets of the two pieces glued together, I glued the two sets together to make a box. Once this had set up, I sanded all of the edges.
Next, I painted the box black.
I then painted "New York Times" on the box.
I drilled holes into the top of my box and then sanded it all again.
The last step was to put the wire into the holes and wahalla I was done! It was very easy and about half the price as the one I originally liked!
Here it is on my entry table!
