Lazy Susan Art Caddy Tutorial

If your house is anything like mine, art supplies are always out and most likely all over the table.
So instead on spending $50 on this art caddy {which is super small for all our stuff}, I spent under $15 making my own {which is MUCH bigger}.

What you will need:
- Lazy Susan {Mine came from Ikea for $7.99}
- Metal buckets. 5 in total {again mine came from Ikea .99 each, same buckets from Buggies party}
- 2 sheets of foam
- Scissors
- Hot glue
- Pen

1. First things first. Place all you buckets on the lazy susan in the spots you are going to want them.
2. Then trace the bottom of the bucket on the foam sheet.

3. Cut the circle out, then take the outer portion and fold in half.

4. Cut around the outer portion to create a circular ring.

5. Glue the ring to the board.
{Repeat steps 2-5 for all buckets}

6. Fill your buckets up

Now when you spin your lazy susan, your buckets will stay put! And you can still remove them from the board!

Hope you enjoy!
