If your Dad reads a lot of periodicals (newspapers and magazines), then this might be the perfect craft to make for your Dad. Instructions are below…enjoy.







Make Newspaper or Magazine Holder Rack for Dad on Father’s Day

CRAFTS MATERIALS THAT YOU WILL NEED:

– Wire hanger

– Gummed tape or felt / fabric or ribbon

– Bottle cork, optional

HOW TO MAKE THIS CRAFT TO MAKE RACK HOLDER FOR MAGAZINES AND NEWSPAPERS

Bend the wire hanger as indicated in the illustrations below.

Step 1








Straighten hook on wire hanger as pictured above.

Step 2








Now bend hook on wire hanger down as pictured above.

Step 3







Now bend arms on wire hanger down as seen above. Letter ‘C’ is where the cork will be placed.

Step 4







Now pull apart hanger about 6 inches at the top. Remember, the cork can also be seen as letter ‘c’.

Step 5

Cover the hanger entirely with gummed tape. If you don’t have gummed tape, then wrap your hanger in ribbon, fabric or felt…but you will need to use glue to secure to the hanger.

Step 6

Insert the end (C) into the center of the cork, if you have one. The cork will keep the holder from scratching table, desk, or floor when it stands with magazines held neatly in it.







This holder is the perfect size for magazines and newspapers of most sizes. Your Dad or Grandpa would love this for Father’s Day…however Moms and Grandmas would love this as well for Mother’s Day or a birthday as well.
