So soon the kids will be going back to school. When Spotlight Australia asked me to work with them on a “back to school” themed DIY for kids returning to school for their Get Creative Magazine I wanted to do something that was fashionable and that women could also use for their make up brushes.
You will need: Kaiser Kraft Table Tidys from Spotlight, pencil, leather-look fabric, cord of varying thicknesses, raffia and glue gun and sticks.
Trace around the wooden cubes with a pencil.
Cut around the squares.
Glue the squares down on opposing sides of the Table Tidy.
Start gluing the cord onto one side of the cube and continue in a an inward spiral.
Cover the entire face of the cube and repeat with a different cord:
When the front faces of the blocks are covered you can then use raffia on the top of the blocks to finish them off nicely.
Once you’ve done all the blocks, leave to dry and then remove and remaining glue threads.
Happy back to school or work! These look amazing in your home office or to organise those pesky make up brushes!
