DIY Nursery Closet Dividers

Now that Caroline's closet is filling up with tons of pretty dresses it's time to get organizing! Long ago I pinned Miss Dixie's Nursery DIY: Closet Dividers tutorial and was so excited to finally use it during yesterday's snow day!
Since I couldn't leave the house without sliding all over the road {you do not want to see this Floridian on ice}, I had to use what I had at home already. Thankfully I had purchased the closet rings last weekend in anticipation for this project.
For my project, I used 2 sheets of extra large scrapbook paper {.59/each at Michaels}, 6 closet divider rings {.99/each at The Container Store}, some spray glue and size labels {Etsy shop}. Ideally, Mod Podge is the way to go instead of spray glue, but I had to make a last minute substitution when I noticed all my Mod Podge was dried up.
Originally, I had planned to take the easy route of just purchasing pre-made closet divider stickers from an Etsy shop. However, once I cut them out I realized they didn't fit the rings I had. I was pretty disappointed because the listing only mentioned "use standard closet ring dividers" and that's exactly what I bought. Anyway, I cut my losses and decided to at least cut out the sizes from the stickers so that's what I used for the labels, but I'm sure you could find something free on Pinterest or make your own labels too.
Once you have all your materials, simply trace, cut and glue {or mod podge} your scrapbook paper to the divider!
Then add your labels, stickers, etc. to dress them up!
And this post wouldn't be complete without giving the hubby a huge shout out for patiently cutting out all 12 paper rings for me. I may or may not have pulled the "i-have-pregnancy-carpal-tunnel-can-you-help-me" card. Gosh, I love that man.

  6. This is SO great! I sent my friend ANOTHER email today and told her that she might as well just add you because for some reason I feel obligated to send her every cool thing I see for her baby, whom I have nicknamed LJ-- Little Jamie. I'm living vicariously through her and my baby would HAVE to have this!

  9. That is SUCH good idea! I didn't think (or see, actually) anybody do that until after my babies were older. But it would have been so nice to have.

  10. Wow! You had way more time than I did! I'm so not a closet person. I had the dividers and one point and still now, it's all a jumbled mess in there. No organization on sizes at all!! LOL!

  15. These will help you SO much! At my baby shower I got clothes from the newborn size all the way up to 2T and it was hard to keep up with a sleep deprived, new mommy brain. :) She missed out on wearing things because the sizes ended up getting all mixed in together.

    My daughter is 3 now and since I buy ahead when I can (she has some 5 & 6's already!) I'm seriously considering doing this with her closet now.

  20. What a great idea! I was just thinking to myself the other day that I need to get Baby Boy's closet organized somehow, and this will be a perfect first step!

  21. Christina, these are too cute! I love how the look - they're big enough to be seen in the closet easily, but not so obtrusive that they look ugly and bulky like some I've seen. They're perfect! And I love the scrapbook paper patterns that you chose. So presh for a little baby girl:)

  24. omg I am SO using this for my baby boy's closet! A friend of mine made her own but they were very flimsy and were tearing since they get moved around so much. I thought it was the most creative, smart idea ever when I saw her kid's closets. I will be coming back to this post for sure!!!
    Your turned out really cute!
