DIY : The Crochet Food Cover that Turned into a Wooden Frame.
I have this idea to use up all those mini granny squares to make a food cover. It’ll be so pretty, so Scandinavian design. The plan was to join all the granny squares into a boxy lid shape that looks something like this :
Then build a rectangular frame with wood. Nail on some legs. It’s 1-2-3, how easy is that, huh ?
Next I went on to make the wooden frame… with no carpentry skills whatsoever. Just lots of experience watching HomeMadeModern and Steve Ramsey on Youtube.
*no photos* The frame came out quite sturdy. However, I realised that I can’t add the legs to the corners because there are already 2 nails intersecting the corners. I nailed the legs next to the corners. I had a very bad feeling.
I went on with it anyways, tying down the granny squares to the frame. But I just can’t leave the sides open. Food cover, not a canopy for bugs to party under. Added the lace, then the legs start w o b b l i n g .
Come to think of it, I should have nailed the legs to the inside corners of the frame. Too late, already pulled off all the legs. No possible way of extracting the nails. Why is the arrow not pointing to the nails ??
It looks quite dangerous with the nails poking out so I stuck the whole frame onto the cork board… and hey, it looks kinda cool.
In the future, I can use it to pin to-do lists , receipts, photos and kinda contain them so my cork board won’t look messy. The letters are made from plaster of paris with the DIY here. To make some of the letters stand up straight, just dab some silicon glue on the bottom. Silicon glue won’t damage the wooden frame. When you want to change out the words, you can just peel them off.
Hope you enjoy this crazy, long post !
