After an array of disappointing searches, I figured I should just make my own and Alhamdulillah, I am glad that I did!
I wanted something that I can place in the centre of our school room table, rather than having it all spread out taking up valuable shelf space!
A rotating cake turntable came to my mind, and Alhamdulillah, worked great!
To put together, all I did was decorate some glass jars with ribbon before super gluing down to the rotating base. I used one lid to store rubbers and sharpeners (these always seem to go missing!) and added some cute lil gems around the base edge!
I love that the kids can sit around the table, and each can grab whatever they need easily....I just wonder how long it will stay looking so neat and tidy! (.....sigh)
If you fancied making one, alternatives to glass jars could be decorated empty food tins or cut-to-size pringle tubes...whatever you like! I've seen some pretty clever holders using finished toilet rolls over on pinterest....have a look around for ideas.
You don't need to purchase an expensive cake turn table, mine only cost £5 Alhamdulillah and works just fine!
If you've had a go at making your own stationary pot, I'd love to see what you came up with! Upload a picture onto my facebook page!
