Ladder Craft Organizer

You may remember the old ladder that I 
jammed into the back of my car.


The piece I hadn't used yet made a great craft organizer... 


I began by "sewing" on the chicken wire using jute twine with a large needle I made out of wire.



Each shelf has a special use.


A magnetic washboard...


Clip on memos...


Rusty metal spikes are wedged in between the shelves to act as ribbon holders...


A basket for "stuff"...


And a bar across the top of the shelf hangs hooks for whatever you want to hang...



All together it makes an awesome junky organizer and is perfect on the big wall in my new craft space!
