Baby Clothes Size Dividers {Kristen from Life with the Ellwoods}

Hi everyone! I’m Kristen from Life with the Ellwoods. My blog is where I share the latest in our lives from house projects to crafts to family gatherings. Most recently I’ve been blowin’ up the blog waves with my nursery projects.
We found out in March that we were expecting our first after a long and painful year of trying to conceive. So of course the moment we were past the first trimester I got busy working on the hundreds of projects I have dreamed of over the past year, one of those being cute little clothes dividers to help separate all of Baby Ellwood’s clothes by size. I wish I could remember where I first saw this idea, but I am glad to say that I came up with a fabulous new finish for  it all on my own. :)
Supplies needed
Unfinished wood door hangers: $0.79 a piece from Hobby Lobby (I waited for a 50% off week)
Scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Foam brush (To apply the Mod Podge)
Brayer (If desired)
Distress ink (If desired)
Silhouette, markers, etc. (Utensil of your choice for the labels)
Velcro (If you decide to create them like I did)
Step 1: Trace the door hangers onto the scrapbook pages of your choice and cut them out.

Step 2: Adhere the scrapbook paper to the door hangers using the Mod Podge. I used my brayer to help smooth out the paper. Once dried, flip them over and adhere scrapbook paper to the other side and let dry.
I chose to put different designs on each side.

Step 3: Distress the edges with the distress ink if desired.

Step 4: Create your labels. I made mine with my Silhouette. (A big shout out to Kevin and Amanda for the adorable font My Own Topher!)
Step 5: I wanted to be able to change out the labels for when baby gets bigger so I attached a small piece of Velcro to one side of the hangers and one to the back of the labels.

Step 6: Admire your work!

Step 7: Cut ribbon and loop it around the door hangers to hang from the curtain rod in your little one’s closet!

My hope is that several of you can use this tutorial for your little one’s closet or to make a super cute gift for a friend’s shower!

    These are great! Soooo cute and way better than the plastic ones I purchased at the baby store. Very clever! :)

    I love this idea, thank you! I struggled so with the first kiddo, trying to keep everything organized. I managed with colored hangers but this would be so clear and easy. My sis in law is pregnant and will surely receive many gifts, but this will be a unique, helpful, charming gift! Thanks for sharing your idea.

    I have been on a mission the past few weeks to find a great way to make closet divders. I’ve seen them do with foam and that’s just not me, this is right on the money for our baby on the way! Thanks for sharing!

    what a great idea … I did something similar when my children were small (17 years ago) … but not as cute as these. these would make a great shower gift … adding this project to my idea file! thanks for sharing.
