Remove the long, straight section of a wire clothes hanger.


Drill two holes on the opposite sides of a five gallon bucket.

DIY Selfie is optional.  (As an aside, this was my first ever selfie and I’m now thinking about uploading at least 24 a day since I’m pretty sure the internet needs more of that kind of thing.)
