DIY ereader holder (Handmade Father’s Day gift)

This little handy ereader holder makes really good use of those inexpensive wooden craft store frames. They can be customized for pennies…and your recipient will be delighted at the time the kiddos took in making them one of a kind. This handy DIY ereader holder is perfect for Dad’s smartphone or ereader. Kids can put this together in just a few minutes (although it is best to allow the glue to dry over night.) All the supplies can be found at your local craft store and for very little money too. You may want to go ahead and make one for a favorite Uncle and Grandpa while you’re at it! Here we go….

An inexpensive frame from the craft store becomes a really useful stand that will fit most tablets and ereaders. (The one shown above is the Kindle Fire) This would be great to place next to the bed where it could be easily found and charged too.

 

The supplies you will need to make your DIY ereader:

  • craft store wooden frame
  • wood glue or super glue
  • spray paint
  • small wood blocks (1/2 inch)
  • hobby wood (1/4 inch thick, 1 1/4 inch wide, cut to the width of frame)
  • hand saw
  • pencil
  • stickers and decorations
  • picture for the frameDIY ereader holder @iheartnaptime (7)

 

Steps:

  1. Measure the hobby wood. This will be what the ereader sits on. Mark with the pencil the width of the frame so you know where to cut.
  2. Cut your wood.
  3. Glue 2 blocks onto the top of the wood. This will “hold” the ereader and prevent it from falling off.
  4. Glue the hobby wood onto the edge of the frame and lay flat. Allow to dry overnight if possible.
  5. When dry…spray paint or stain the ereader holder.
  6. Decorate and place a picture in the frame.
  7. It’s ready to use!
