A Cheap Crafting Video Camera Setup

Good morning!  I just wanted to share with you my new video setup because I'm so excited about it!  You might have noticed that I've made a few videos in the last few weeks after not having made any in about 7 months, and that's because I finally got a better setup.  I can now tape myself crafting without having a huge tripod between me and my table.  The best part is that my new setup only cost me EIGHT dollars!  Here's a quick video showing how it works.

Great idea. The rice works so well because it kind of "forms" around the tripod. TFS

Super way to steady your camera and not be in your way. I like this idea.

I thought I would add more that I use a similar system for sitting buddies.. Ziplock bags filled with rice covered in tape for my K kids that have tons of energy. With parents permission they can choose to get a sitting buddy for the rug. Adds a little weight to help stabilize them but also provides a fidget if they need one to keep it together to get through circle time.

Great idea Katie! I've got to try something and hopefully I can adapt your method to work. Love it!
