Hello Fellow Instructable-rs. In this instructable we will be making a simple watch stand holder. I'd been getting tired of not having anywhere to put my watch once I'd taken it off and it consequently being placed any and everywhere. I had a toilet paper roll that I did not want to throw away because it was really firm but wasn't sure want I wanted to use it for... until this came to mind. The best part is that it is a very quick project and will take no more than 15 minutes :)

Step 1: What You Need....

Okay so you'll need:

• A toilet paper roll (used)
• A mini saw/ box cutter/ craft knife etc.
• Spray Paint
• A ruler and a pencil

That's basically it.

Step 2: Measurements

So in this step, measure the width of the watch strap and mark it along the sides of the roll. We are going to cut out sections for the straps to fit through, so extend the marks vertically on both sides of the roll.

Then measure from the top of the roll how deep you want the sections to be. I measured 15mm and marked it with a pencil.

Step 3: Cutting

Cut out the sections you made with your cutting tool.

Step 4: Painting

In case you don't have spray paint, you can use whatever else you have to decorate the roll. I chose spray paint because I had it and it's fast. Note: Be sure to use a mask when using spray paint to avoid inhaling it.

Give the paint (or other decorations) to dry/set and...

Step 5: Done!

You're all done! You can now place your watch in it and put it up.

Bonus points

You could add on to this by adding some leds inside to give it a nice ambient look.

Thanks for reading :)
