I needed another excuse to use plaster and I had plenty of left over wire from this wall grid DIY, so combined them both in what turned out to be a pretty easy make.

| HOW YOU MAKE IT |
The creation from start to finish is quite quick, so the majority of this make is shown via video - literally no time to take photos as once that plaster is mixed, you go!
Start by creating a mould for the base/stand [please feel free to use the template below - right click the image and save to your computer to print].
Once you have your mould and wire ready, gather a few weighty items which will be used to support your mould before mixing your plaster - as it dries quickly and won't be easy to add to once poured, make a generous amount to ensure you don't run out.
Pour your plaster into the mould, tap on the surface to remove any bubbles and leave for just a few minutes to settle.
Add your wire to the mould, slightly angled and hold everything in place with your weighty objects.
Leave to dry for at least 8 hours/overnight [but refer to your packet instructions].
Your wire should now stand freely and the stand provide enough weight and support to keep it there.
I'm using mine on my desk to store and clip any receipts and notes and the stand is a handy store for keeping any small bits and bobs tidy.
