My closet is almost organized. Almost. Tomorrow. I promise.
But did you know they make denim Duck Tape? I didn’t until I found some the other day. How exciting! Denim duck tape! And I knew it needed to be part of my closet makeover. So I decided to make some simple closet dividers to help me keep the organization I’ve been working so hard on.
All you need is a plastic place mat (although I’m sure card stock would work too), two circular-shaped things to trace (I used a CD and a shot glass), Sharpie markers or pencil (silver Sharpie to label and black Sharpie or pencil to trace here), scissors, and of course Duck Tape in a pattern of your choice. Here’s a simple photo DIY for you.
The one thing to remember is to cut a vertical slit from the outside to the inside of your circle. This is how the circle will fit over the hanging bar in your closet. Then, when you place your tape, line it up along this cut. That way, you won’t have to re-cut anything, and the tape is even on both sides. Once you’ve trimmed the excess Duck Tape, use a lighter-colored Sharpie to write the categories of clothes in your closet. These are often used in baby closets to divide clothes by size. I used them to divide my shirts from my pants from my dresses from my skirts. And I’m still excited about the denim-pattern Duck Tape.
(I should say that these photos were taken in Max’s closet. He has the biggest closet in the family and the smallest and fewest clothes. This irony is not lost on me.)
