DIY Lazy Susan – Just $3 & 10 Seconds!

DIY Lazy Susan

One of my favorite organizing products is a Lazy Susan. They spin nicely and make everything easy to find & access. They’re great in pantries, deep cabinets, on table tops, and even in cabinets. Sometimes they’re hard to find in stores, and they’re often expensive to buy. And if you live somewhere where you don’t have access to a lot of organizing products, you might not have access to purchase a Lazy Susan.

That’s why I decided to make own! I’m really excited about how well my Lazy Susan turned out!

$3 Dollar Store DIY Lazy Susan Spins So Well!

Once I had all of the supplies, this DIY project literally took just 10 seconds to put together, and it’s just so fun! It’s instant gratification once you put your items inside and give it a spin.

As you can see below, the marbles let the pan spin really nicely and smoothly. It’s seriously the simplest thing to make!

You can see my DIY Lazy Susan plus more DIY organzing products in my DIY Organization Ideas (Part 1) video!
