Project Steps

Bend the paper clips as shown. Use as many you need for this project.

Insert the paper clips around the cork so that it looks something like this.

It takes a bit of care to push the paper clips so they won’t bend. If that happens, it’s OK; just straighten them out again.

If your cork stand falls over, bend a paper clip in an “L” shape to make a stabilizing foot.

This shape is also helpful when building the arms that come out to hold the small dish that you will put on top of the stand.

Enjoy the holder you made using things in your house!

I put a Pepsi can on it to show you how well it works.
