Waiting for paint to dry? Make a DIY drying rack!

Hi Friends! Waiting for paint to dry is one of the most frustrating things about being a crafter or artist. I made these DIY drying boards to have a place to dry small crafts, beads, and ornaments that are painted or varnished on all sides. I recently made one for curing resin pieces and I will show you that today but all of my DIY drying racks are made the same way. My older ones have been used for a decade or more and hold up great! I hope you give this project a try, it is so useful!


  • Foam board or Styrofoam
  • Straight pins or toothpicks
  • Wax paper or aluminum foil

This might seem like a no-brainer but often the handiest ideas are! Happy crafting!
