If you have a baby, you must know that everyone’s favorite gift is clothes! Factor that in with a new mummy like me who is already obsessed with cute clothes, and you have a very full closet!
Now that Amelia is getting bigger she is able to wear a lot of her really fun and cute outfits.
What was starting to happen though is I would find a really cute outfit new with tags that I had forgot I had!
I looked online for baby closet organisers, then saw how easy they were to make and that it would be much cheaper than buying some. Luckily, much like her nursery art and mobile, I decided to make my own! This craft was easy breezy. Here’s what you need:
Wooden door hangers ( I wanted to do mine smaller but couldn't find anything at the time)
Craft paper/anything you want to design
Marker pen or stick on numbers
Step 1 - Paint each door hanger, they may need a few coats depending on the type of the wood or paint.
Let them dry completely.
Step 2- Next it's time to choose your pattern for the organisers. I had a collection of scrapbook card left over from a previous project so I just used those. Cut them out to the correct size.
Step 3 - Once you have cut the card out to the correct size for the hanger glue it down on the opposite side to the one you just painted.
Step 4 - Next customize it anyhow you like. I added a strip of ribbon along the width as my card wasn't big enough so had to use two sheets per hanger. It was a easy way to hide that line. I then stuck my stickers on to make the sizes. You can use what ever you like to do this...whether it be pen, marker, paint, stickers. I started my ages at 0-3 months as Amelia is out of the newborn stage :( but if you are making these for an expecting mother I would start at newborn and go up to 12+.
Step 5 - Do the previous steps with all hangers to the amount you require and voila! There you have it, now go and hang them in the closet or wrap them up for a gift.
(Sorry for the rubbish photo quality, I took them on my phone without the flash)
