Anyway, as part of the organizing of the nursery, I decided to make some size dividers for the closet. I have seen some plastic ones for sale for $20 - $30, and really didn't think they were cute enough for that price, so I decided to make my own. Here is how I did it.
-1 12 x 18 foam sheet - the thicker the better (I used 3 mm)
-Mod Podge & brush
-computer/printer to print your designs
-corner rounder (optional)
1. Purchase a sheet of foam in a complimentary color to your design/decor. These won't show much, but still a nice touch if it matches. I got this large piece at Hobby Lobby for 50 cents and still have about half of it left over.
2. Design & print your tags. I made mine 4 x 4, but probably could have made them a little smaller. I went ahead and made the following: newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, and 12+ months. Once I printed the tags, I used my corner rounder to finish them off.
3. Next I used Mod Podge to glue them to the foam, then cut them out. After allowing them to dry, I gave them a top coat of Mod Podge, too.
4. Punch a hole in the top of each one and cut ribbon to the desired length to hang them from your closet rod. That's it!
Here are a few shots of them hanging in his closet. I'm still working on organizing it completely, and will share those pictures soon...I just wanted to give you an idea of how they look. :) I shared a picture of it on Twitter and had some people ask me if I'm left-handed (because of the direction of the tags). No, I'm not...but it's a walk-in closet, so I started at the front, if that makes sense.
I'm really pleased with how they turned out, especially considering it cost me less than a dollar! Please let me know if you have any questions...thanks for stopping by! :)
