DIY Mounted Kraft Paper Roll

Chalk this project to something I would have done a long time ago if I had realized how easy it would have been.  It took no more than 10 minutes and cost less than $10.  What could be better?

Materials
  • 2 eye hooks
  • 1 wooden dowel that fits through the eye hooks
  • 12 inch roll of kraft paper (or is it craft?)
  • 2 metal washers - optional
  • 2 small screws - optional
Instructions
  1. Hand screwed the the eye hooks into any wooden surface (I used the back of a door but you could easily modify this for wall mounting by using a wooden board)
  2. Measure the space between the eye hooks and cut the dowel to slightly larger length
  3. Optional: Add the washer and screw to one end of the dowel
  4. Thread the dowel into the eye hook and hang the paper roll from it
  5. Optional: Screw in the other washer + screw 

It's great for everything from lists to love notes.  Hung in a more prominent place it would make a great menu board or office to do list as well. You can easily make this smaller or larger depending upon the paper roll you are using by using larger eye hooks and a thicker dowel.

Easy right?

  2. Very nice. Did you do anything to anchor the paper down at the bottom so it doesn't curl up or fly around? Or is that not an issue? Will definitely do something like this in my office. Thanks!

    1. I didn't because it works well as is. The paper will move around a little when I open the door but not so much that it bothers me. You could easily add another couple of eye hooks + dowel at the bottom if you don't want it moving around. Or just put a paper clip or two at the bottom to weight it down.

    1. I get it at Lowes - they sell it in a variety of weights/colors/widths.
