DIY Rotating Supply Organizer

Hello everyone! What can you make with two cake pans, some marbles, paper towel rolls, and some spray paint? You can make this "DIY Rotating Supply Organizer" to organize all your supplies. I made this organizer to organize all of my kiddos' supplies for when they are doing homework or want to create some master pieces. I also made one for myself to organize all my office and craft supplies. What makes this organizer even better is the fact that it rotates so you can easily find all the supplies you need.

To make this organizer be a rotating organizer you will need two cake pans and a bag of marbles. I got the cake pans at Wal-mart for .88 cents each and the marbles at Dollar Tree.

Pour the bag of marbles into one cake pan.

Then place the second cake pan on top of the marbles. The top cake pan can now rotate in circles because it rolls on the marbles. I found this idea of the rotating cake pan on's youtube channel. 

Now to create the different sections to organize the supplies, I just used paper towel and tissue paper rolls.

I cut the paper towel and tissue paper rolls to the different sizes I wanted and then arrange them in the cake pan how I wanted them. Once I arrange them the way I liked them, I staple them together.

After I stapled them together I took the whole toilet paper and tissue paper rolls out of the cake pan and spray paint them a light blue color. Once the paint was dry, I put the rolls back into the cake pan but this time I glued the rolls to the bottom of the cake pan.

The last step was to fill the organizer with all the supplies. I LOVE this organizer and you can use it for so many things and in so many rooms. With it being a rotating organizer, it can be put in the middle of a table or on a shelf and you can still get to whatever supply you need. Also this organizer was so cheap to make as well.

  1. Great idea. Will use in kitchen, office and dressing table. Thanks

  2. I think my wife would love this! Her craft room is always a mess, but she doesn't like putting everything away if she is just going to use it the next day. This puts it all at her hands reach, yet keeps it organized. Good idea! I will try my hand at being crafty and make one for her.
