DIY Nursery Clothing Organizers

I haven't been inspired to make anything in particular lately. I have perused Pinterest day-in and day-out with little to no DIY ideas. It wasn't until I was reading Molly's blog that I decided to search for her nursery projects to see if there was anything inspiring. Of course there was and that's where I came across these: DIY Closet Clothing Organizers. I knew then and there that this had to be my next project. Just as I start any project, off to Michael's I went to gather my supplies.

What you need:
Foam Doorhangers
Glue gun
Wooden decorations

I was so proud of myself because I used a 20% off entire purchase. I bought everything but the doorhangers with that coupon. Since they were the most expensive item at $8, I did a separate transaction and used a 40% off coupon. All in all I spent $15 on this project. Not bad if you ask me!

The rest of this project is pretty self explanatory and open for creative freedom. I laid out my design on each hanger and then glued everything down. Just as Molly suggested, I categorized them as:

0-3 Months
3-6 Months
6-12 Months
12-18 Months
18-24 Months

The only thing left to do was to write on them and tie a ribbon for that extra girly flair!

I went ahead and cut a slit in them so they could easily fit over the clothes rod. Now all we need are some clothes! I don't think that part will be hard. I'm excited to have a place to organize everything as I start receiving those "hand-me-downs".

One of the most painless projects I've done. Even for those of you who claim to not be crafty, this project is for you! You can even see I'm not perfect, check out the 3-6 month hanger. I let my mind drift for one second and there it was, I had written a completely different number other than 6. Oh well, sometimes those imperfections are what makes crafting the best. It's not going to be perfect and sure it bothers me, but every time I look at my mistake, I will remember that I made these, imperfections and all.
