My entire guest bedroom closet is devoted to crafting (at least until we get another kiddo). I love organization and hate that I have to go into the attic to pull out my wrapping paper rubbermaid everytime I have to wrap a present. So...... this is what I came up with to remedy that problem after seeing something similar on Pinterest.
What you'll need:
- polished hemp string/yarn
- hook hanger screws
- an electric drill
- an ink pen with top
First I premeasured where I wanted my hook hangers to go then I used an electric drill to get the holes started and screwed the hooks in the rest of the way by hand. To get the hemp string down through the spool I just hooked the string through a pen cap to give it some weight and dropped it through. I know this may seem like common sense to most but after trying to thread the curly string through with no luck I thought I'd share that little learning experience with you guys.
To tie the loops onto each end of the string I used a technique that I learned a LONG time ago at 4-H camp. I just tied them in the same way that you would start a friendship bracelet but instead of taking the knot the entire way up, I left my finger in the way, which left a great loop to place onto the hooks making changing out the paper rolls very easy.
I hung my spools of wrapping paper at different lengths so that I could visualize them easier. The finished product:
I love that the rolls are tiered b/c I can simply pull down the appropriate length, cut it straight from the closet, and that's that! No clean up!
