I’m loving the project I have for you all today! It’s serves so many purposes and it’s just so darn cute!
This cute little Photo Carousel was super easy to make and only cost me about $10! It’s also perfect for displaying greeting cards 😉
Here’s how I made it!
I started by purchasing 1 2×8 @ 8ft. and cut 1 piece at 28″ and 1 piece at 7 1/4″. I also used a scrap 1×10 and cut it at 9 1/4″. You can use any size scrap as long as you can cut it down to a 9 1/4″ square.
I purchased this lazy susan at a hardware store and attached it to the 9 1/4″ board and the 7 1/4″ board with Gorilla Glue Epoxy.
Once the epoxy dried, I used Gorilla Glue wood glue to attach the 28″ piece to the top of the 7 1/4″ board. Just center it on the board.
Next, I attached a wood finial to the very top of the 28″ board. You can find these wooden craft finials at most of the craft stores.
I then hot glued 3 wooden clothespins to each side of the carousel. This will hold our pictures 🙂
Once the glue was dry, I sprayed two coats of our favorite Rust-Oleum Heirloom White spray paint, in satin, to the entire piece.
That was it 🙂 Because I am giving these as Christmas gifts, I just tied some jingle bells to twine and wrapped it around the top finial 🙂
There you go! A simple, inexpensive DIY that will help decorate your home for Christmas! We always appreciate your pins and shares!
