Building a Stand for Making Hanging Crafts

CD sun catcher hanging behind standI recently began making wind chimes, sun catchers, and mobiles out of recycled materials.

The first two took way too much time and effort as I was trying to lay them on a table to work. So I designed this simple, but effective, stand so I can hang them from the top and work on them as they are going to hang.


Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1


  • 1 10 ft PVC pipe ($3.25)
  • 1 PVC cutter
  • 1 hammer
  • 2 elbow couplers ($4.50)
  • 2 tee couplers ($6.50)

I was able to borrow the PVC pipe cutter and already owned a hammer.


  1. Cut your pipe into one 12" piece for the top, two 42" pieces for the sides, and divide the last piece into 4 pieces that come out to be "about" 6" each.

    I originally designed it to have 4 4" stands vertical from the 6" stands so there are more elbows and tees there than I needed.

  3. Assemble the 2 elbows on the top and sides, connecting the 3 pieces.
  4. Using the tee's, put your stand legs on in the opposite direction of the stand pieces. These are easy to tap in with a little hammer. You don't need glue.
