Make a creative wall holder for the kids' drawing paper

Do you have a toddler who loves to draw and engage in creative activities? Create a creativity corner where kids can let their imaginations loose.

Many children love drawing and can fill countless sheets with creative doodles. Instead, try hanging an entire paper roll with a creative DIY wall mount on the wall.

The wall mount takes about half an hour to make and requires no crafting experience. It's very budget-friendly and perfect for the kids' creativity corner.

Follow the step-by-step guide and create a creative corner where kids can draw, write numbers, and practise making letters to their hearts' content.

How to make a wall-mounted paper holder

What you need:

  • Drawing paper roll
  • Round wooden dowel that is approx. 20 cm longer than your drawing paper roll
  • 2 recycled leather belts
  • 4 screws (and wall plugs if needed)
  • Scissors and pliers
  • Manual or electric screwdriver


Take arecycled leather belt and cut it into two straps of equal length.

The straps should be approx. 30 cm long.


Cut holes in the straps so they are easy to attach with screws afterwards

TIP: Make the first hole and then assemble the strap so you can see where the second hole should be placed. Once you've made a hole at each end of the first strap, you can use it as a template for the holes in the second strap.


Cut anotherleather belt about 10 cm longer than the paper roll

Make a hole at both ends of the strap so it's easy to attach with screws afterwards.

How to mount the drawing paper holder


Drill a screw through the holes in the strap and mount the strap on the wall

PLEASE NOTE: Some wall types, such as a brick wall, require you to use wall plugs for a durable result.


Once bothstraps are mounted, attach the wooden dowel between the straps

TIP: Use a spirit level when attaching the straps so that the roll hangs completely horizontally.


Mount the paper roll on the round dowel so that the paper can roll down the wall


Fit the long leather belt over the paper with a screw on both sides

Children's corner in the living room

If you have children who like being close to you all the time, it can be a good idea to create a children's corner in the living room with space for toys and creative activities. For example, create a creativity corner with the kid-sized Oakee table and chair so your child can sit and immerse themselves in creative activities. Or decorate the corner with a nice wooden bench where several children can sit next to each other and get creative.

You may want to define the children's corner with a soft, cosy rug if you have a hardwood or tiled floor. Toy and craft storage is also practical to consider when organising your kids' corner. It can be in the form of boxes or baskets with lids that can be organised and stacked when tidying up.

Creativity corner in the playroom

There’s plenty of room for creative activities to flourish when you put together a creativity corner in the playroom. Find a nice table and a small children's chair, and store pencils and paper in a spacious wardrobe with doors that can be closed when creative activities are complete. Decorate the kids' corner with bunting and a number or letter poster to spark creativity.

One creative activity you can do in your new creativity corner is to make pompom pictures. Gather all your leftover yarn and turn it into soft round pompoms – you can find a step-by-step guide here.

The creativity corner can be quickly transformed into a play or reading corner whenever you like. Fun children's jigsaw puzzles, memory games and number games are all activities that challenge children's fine motor skills and logical thinking.
