Hello friends, I hope you guys are doing very well. I am Priyanka and welcome to learning ocean. I am glad that you come here to read my article. Today I wanted to share a very interesting and easy DIY Desk Decor idea with you. I will show you in this article, how I have made a desk organizer to decor my desk. Materials I have used to make this DIY organizer are very minimal and you can find them easily in the market. I have shown step by step so that you can also make this sweet and cute desk organizer easily. I hope you will like this desk decor idea.
I have been thinking since a couple of days that I need an organizer to keep all my stationeries. But I did not want to spend lot money for that. Because I don't think we should spend money for these kind of things whereas we can make them easily. I had some cardboard in the store room. So I decided to recycle them. Because sometimes it is a fun to do something like that. I did not buy anything because I had everything on my hand but you might have to buy some materials.
White art paper
Pink art paper
I have made this for free but I am sure that it would not run you more than $5. You may also buy them online. The entire purchase links are given beside the materials.
At first cut cardboard. 6 pieces of 18 x 18 cm, 2 pieces of 17.5 x 8.8 cm, 4 pieces of 18 x 8 cm, 2 pieces of 8 x 16.5 cm & 2 pieces of 18 x 17 cm.
Now cover the pieces of 18 x 18 cm and 18 x 17 cm with pink art paper and the rest of the pieces with white art paper.
Take 5 pieces of white art paper of 18 x 4 cm. Fold in the middle. Apply glue and paste on one side of 18 x 18 cm piece. Do the same with the 4 other piece of 18 x 18 cm cardboard.
Now take 3 pieces of 18 x 18 cm. Find the middle and mark there. So that we can easily paste all the pieces and we can see where to place the middle shelf. Now apply glue to build up the base. Paste a piece in the middle. Paste another piece by the side. Paste rest of the three pieces to make upper, lower and back of the organizer.
To make the organizer look beautiful I am going to border it. For that I am using 18 x 4 cm white art paper. Fold it in the middle. Apply glue. Paste it on the side of the organizer. You may also use washi tape alternatively.
Now it's time to make the drawer. At first take 4 pieces of pink art paper of 18 x 18 cm and paste them on one side of the cardboard of 18 x 18 cm. Do the same with all the cardboards according to the measurement.
Take a piece of 18 x 17 cm. This is the base. Paste 2 piece of cardboard of 18 x 4 cm on the both side. Add a piece of cardboard of 16.5 x 8 cm on the back.
Draw some cartoon on 17.5 x 8.8 CM piece of cardboard. I have drawn panda and hello Kitty. But you can draw any cartoon of your choice.
Add this in the front of the drawer. Make another drawer as well.
Congratulations you are done.
At first I researched how to make a desk decor on Google. I got some suggestions. Then I go for some sketches and measurements, so that I can make it properly. As I made this for the first time, I had no idea how it will come up at the end. You may have noticed that I did use white art paper on one side of each 18x18 cm cardboard later. Because, when it was needed I totally forgot to do it. So it was a mistake. But yeah I had fun doing this.
