  • I have been itching to do something small.  You know, those quick and easy craft projects that give you a sense of immediate excitement and satisfaction?  
The kind of project that doesn't take a ton of thought or a major hit to the pocketbook? I recently whipped up the sweetest little $2 project.

  • Because I was able to use many items I already had at home, I only had to spend $2 at our local craft store.  $.99 for a 7/16" dowel and $.99 for an unfinished 3"x5" round wood plaque.  Additionally I used a piece of scrap fabric, a paper towel roll, Mod Podge, wood glue, stain, a drill and saw.

  • I started by staining the plaque and dowel with some dark walnut stain leftover from previous projects.  Once it was dry, we drilled a hole in the center of the plaque slightly smaller than the size of the dowel.

  • Next, I used the Mod Podge to affix the fabric I that wrapped around the paper towel roll.  I simply tucked the excess fabric inside on each end.

  • Once the glue dried, I very lightly sanded everything down and used a small craft brush to touch up stain. {Looking back, I should have sanded the plaque prior to staining}.

  • Using an x-acto knife, I created a small slit into the bottom of the fabric wrapped roll to create a hole.

  • I then placed a dab of hot glue on the top of the dowel and attached the fabric wrapped roll onto the base.  I added a few more tiny drops of hot glue where the roll and dowel met for added stability.
