Hi there! Welcome to the Hobby Lobby Creative
Studio. Today I’m going to show you how to make the perfect charging station for any
guy in your life. Although, when you’re done, you just might want to keep it for yourself!
With a few tools and materials, you can make this fun and functional gift to hold all your
essentials. So let’s get started! The first thing you’ll need is craft wood.
For this project you’ll the following sizes. Did you know you can actually find varying
sizes of pre-cut craft wood like this at Hobby Lobby?
You’ll also need upholstery nails, a ruler, wood glue, scraps of leather, and material
for a message board. The only tools you’ll need are a hammer and
scissors! Once you’ve measured the phone for your charging
station, you can glue your wood pieces together to accommodate it.
Make sure your pieces are firmly in place and let the glue dry for at least 30 minutes.
Now add your message board! Just measure, cut, and glue!
For the perfect pen holder. You’ll want to measure and cut a strip of leather 3 inches
long by half an inch wide. Now fold the leather in half and secure it
with an upholstery nail at the top of your charging station.
And that’s it! Any guy will be lucky to have this charging station to hold his phone, wallet,
special notes and more. Or try your own stuff on it first and you just might decide to make
him something else! Make it your own with different colors of
stain & leather! You could also use various materials for your message board, like metal
or dry erase! The possibilities are endless with the wide
variety of craft wood available at Hobby Lobby! You can customize your design with a fun wood
burned message or remember a sweet moment by transfering a photo onto the wood!
As you can see, we just scratched the surface today when it comes to DIY charging stations.
Now get creative designing your own, and I’ll see you next time at the Hobby Lobby Creative
