Somewhere on Pinterest, I saw a craft paper/butcher paper dispenser. Of course I didn’t pin it when I saw it, and now I can’t find it, but I really wanted one for near my front door.
I also love the concept of chalkboard lettering,
so I thought doing some Sharpie marker art with the DIY butcher paper dispenser would be the perfect combination of the two!
And I love that I can keep my artwork;
when the season it over,I can roll it up and start fresh!
You’ll need :
a roll of light colored craft paper or butcher paper cut to 24″
2 dowels( 1 1/2 inch,1 3/4 inch cut to 30″
brown craft paint
Font’s of choice, I found mine at Dafont
First, your paper will probably come in a 36″ inch length, I pulled out my hacksaw and cut the paper to the right length,tube and all.
It actually left a bit of a rough edge which I kind of like. Next time I might saw off both sides.
At the bottom, I rolled the bottom(larger dowel) up the the paper for a few inches to weigh it down. I then punched holes and threaded garden twin through to hold it in place.
This way when I am ready to change it, I can just roll it up and tie it higher. Or, if I want to move it to the kitchen I can do that too.
I then added all of my art and lettering using this pencil transfer technique,
you can also use transfer/graphite paper.
