DIY Closet Dividers for the Nursery

Braxton Hicks have been going non-stop now and so have my nesting instincts!  I’m feeling like I won’t get everything done before she comes.  As part of my “nesting instinct,” and now that I will have an 18-month old and a baby sharing the same closet, I decided it’s time I finally buckle down and make some DIY closet dividers for the nursery.  Rotation of clothes has been one of my least favorite things, but hopefully these dividers will help me keep track of everything better.  If you are interested in dividers beyond 24 months, comment below.  I’d be happy to make them if there is interest.

I highly recommend laminating them for durability, but if you don’t have a laminator you can get some shower curtain hooks from the dollar store and glue them onto the back so that the dividers just snap right onto the rod!  I had planned on doing that as well, but the lamination seemed sturdy enough.  If you don’t have a laminator, I would highly recommend getting one, especially if you are a mom!  I use mine ALL THE TIME.  I got the Apache off Amazon for $20, and I got that one specifically for the wider format so that I can laminate file folder games.  However, I did notice that the Apache did a crappy job laminating anything thicker than 5 mil, so if you are doing something involving thicker pouches and you don’t care about the wider format, then I’ve hear that Scotch is a good one.

If you’d like to print a copy for yourself, you can choose from the pink ones that I did above, or I also did a multi-colored version that is more gender-neutral.

Now that I have that over with, does anyone have some good tips on rotating your kid’s clothes and keeping up with all the “too big/too little” clothes?

These are also great for organizing clothes when you do a yard sale!  Visit All Things With Purpose For more yard sale organizing tips.

About Tina M

I'm six-foot tall mother of two and I'm enjoying the view! I use blogging as my creative outlet, swimming as my physical outlet, and the rest of my life revolves around my husband and girls (18 months apart). I enjoy warm summer rain, eating peanut butter by the spoonful, having dance parties with my husband and kids and I avoid folding laundry at all cost

A HUGE thank you to those of you that shop through our occasional affiliate links that appear on Mother's Niche!  It is of no extra cost to you, and I notice and appreciate it each time that it happens (really).  Because of you, I might be able to avoid having to cloth diaper my babies, wash and recycle my zip lock baggies, and maybe one day in the future we will be able to afford a lawn mower.  A girl can dream, right?  See my disclosure policy for more info.  Love you all!

    Sometimes you see an idea and think “that’s so simple why has no one done it before”. Brilliant idea! I would love to see them in further ages (my girls are 4 & 6) but the older one wears up to age 8. Please make them for some more ages. X

    What do you think about posting more ages and then we can cross market. We’ll add you to our post and you add us here? We also have a link up party on Thursdays at allthingswithpurpose.com and we’d love to see this there!!

    I really like this idea and am wondering if I can make something similar for my middle school children, to promote actually hanging clothes back up in the closet and keeping the closet organized: Shirts, jackets, skirts, dresses, etc.

      Sure Cristina! If you’ll send me an email under “contact” on the main page, then I will have a reminder and I’ll just send them straight over to you via email. Thanks for stopping by!

    What a great idea! Do you have sizes 2T through 7 in the Multi-Colored? It only came up pink when I clicked on the link.

What do you think?
