At the beginning of the school year, I got a set of wire wall baskets from Pottery Barn. My plan was to use them for organizing the girls school work. Mr. Mac hung them on the wall for me and I got some cute folders on clearance at Target for each.
All the papers coming home from school and dance, I was still keeping clipped together with a magnet clip on the side of our fridge. I decided I should add some clips over these baskets for those papers. So, I made some!
Wood plaque (any craft store has these)
Base coat the plaques any color combination you like. I went with green/blue and did opposites on each plaque.
I wanted to have each girl's initial on their plaque. Using chalk, I drew out the initial, then painted it on with the orange paint. Make sure to measure up using the clothespin to know where to put the initial.
Next, I added some dots and dashes to the letters/plaque to give it a little more character.
Finally, I added a few coats of clear and glued the clothespins down.
Now just hang them over the baskets and everything is neatly organized in one location!
