Trust me when I say I need all the organizational help I can get in my office. There are papers and craft supplies a plenty, but I am surprisingly low on the organization. Luckily Consumer Crafts has everything I need to organize my space. These rolling carts are amazing! I have 4! But I also needed a new way to organize my papers on my desk, so I turned to a little DIY action to make this mountain range desk organizer DIY. Isn’t it cute with it’s colorful, snow topped mountains?! The whole project took only about 30 minutes to make (not including dry time). And now I have the most adorable way to store papers ever!
Begin by using the utility knife and ruler to draw and cut various sized triangles out of the basswood. Since the wood is so thin and light, you can easily score and cut the wood with the utility knife. You will need 6 triangles of various sizes and one larger piece that measures 10″ by 6″.
Once your wood is cut, paint your mountains. You can use different colors of acrylic paint like I did, or stick to all one color. The choice is yours!
Once the triangles are painted, let them dry, then add the white snow caps.
Once that paint has dried, use wood glue to attach the mountains to the white painted base. You want to space out the mountains so that the spaces between then can hold a section of papers. Then let the glue dry overnight to cure.
Once the glue has dried, your mountain range desk organizer DIY is ready to use!
