I was looking at buying a Kraft paper holder to hang my paper roll in my newly decorated office but it was $250. I didn’t want to spend that much and inspiration hit me when I was wondering through IKEA.
2. Insert the pole through the roll to measure the correct width.
3. Cut the pole down to size.
4. Hang curtain rod as per IKEA instructions.
The hack took hardly any time at all. Probably half an hour all up. It cost $15 in Australian dollars when I did the hack but the price has since come down to $11 and in USD it’s $8.96. Kraft paper not included.
The hardest part of this hack was cutting the curtain rod down although my husband made short work of it with his power tools
