DIY PEZ Dispenser Shelf

C with his new PEZ shelf

C is a collector.  This boy has been collecting things since he was a tot.  Currently he collects rocks, smashed pennies/quarters, Star Wars ships, mini erasers and PEZ dispensers.  He actually has quite the collection of PEZ.  When we moved he didn't really have a place to put everything.  He had boxes all over.

Over the holiday break David and C built a PEZ dispenser holder and it's awesome.  It is a fairly simple design.  Basically shelves with dowels.

Everyone is super happy with it, especially C - who now has a great place to display his PEZ and his ships (on top).  This is actually great for me because I can never remember which dispensers he already has but now I can see them - woohoo!  Do your kids collect anything?  I'd love to hear what.

Love this Pez Dispenser Shelf! This would work with any sort of toys or figurines too! We used to get Pez Dispensers and candy every year in our Christmas stocking too but I never had as many as your son! That is a lot!

What a great idea and so easy to do. I love that you can also personalize the shelf and make it different colors. It adds a personal touch to the room as well!
