Super cute and easy Recipe Holder tutorial { lilluna.com } This is a great gift idea!!

I like to make my mom something for Mother’s Day each year. This year, my brain was fried – and I was drawing a blank. I was so glad when I remembered a tutorial I saw on U-Create by the Shanty 2 Chic Sisters.

They made a cute board that held pictures. I wanted to do something similar but have it hold recipes for my mom. This is what I did…

SUPPLIES:

– Main wood piece {I used a cabinet door front}
– Finial {top wood piece}
– Spool
– Oval Wood Piece for base
– Drill
– Wood Glue
– Spray Paint
– Sand Paper {to distress}
– Clothes pin

DIRECTIONS:

1. Mark the center of your main wood piece on the top and the bottom based off of the width of the board and the thickness of the board.

2. Drill a hole slightly larger than the screw on the finial. *If you want to make the holder sturdier and with smoother transitions, you can flatten the connecting parts on the frame using a forstner bit.
