It wasn’t just super easy to put together, but the fact that I was starting the day with a quick n little cheap upcycling project feels really rewarding.
Aviva brought home some insence sticks yesterday that I wanted to burn in my office today while working. But where to stick it in?
Hmmm, why don’t I make a insence holder!!!
So, I took a pair of scissors, a paper towel roll and a little piece of cardboard.
I fired up the hot glue gun while cutting the roll in half.
I cut out a piece of thicker cardboard to sit on top of the roll as a bridge with a little cravis that would hold the insence stick in place.
I poked a hole in the roll.
I then glued all pieces together, put the insence stick in to measure, cut into the bridge, adjusted the roll to stand firmly – and voilà!
I then shaped a sheet of aluminum foil as an inlay to protect the card board from catching fire.
Seriously, it’s that simple! And it basically costs nothing!
It’s a pretty cool handmade gift too!!!
Now, of course you can decorate it however you want. I’m going to enjoy the raw look for now!
Have a creative day!!!
