Who knew one cedar fence post and 2 old license plates could make such a fun DIY?! I used one Cleveland Indians and one traditional license plate because that’s what Edward had in the garage. I personally kinda like the mis-matched look.

  • 1 cedar fence post cut into: (2) 7-inch pieces (one piece will have to be manually dog- eared) and (1) 12-inch bottom piece. You can find the fence pickets here.
  • 2 license plates
  • metal bottle cap opener
  • wood screws
  • Nail gun or Staple gun
  • Drill
  • 4 Leather Strips approx. 24 inches in length each (I had some left over from the Cleveland Indians Door Hanger)
  • a 17-inch long 1-inch Dowel Rod
  • 2 Eye Hooks

I opted to paint and distress the wood pieces and stain the dowel rod.

Add a bottle opener on the side to complete the functionality of the carrier.
