DIY Shoe Organizer
- 1” x 24” wooden dowels (or desired length if bigger door)
- Heavyweight, strong and sturdy material (table cloth, burlap)
- Hot glue gun / hot glue
- Fabri-Tac glue
- Canvas bags
- Door wreath hanger
- You’ll want to start with your 1”x24” wooden dowel TIP: If you purchase your wooden dowel at the hardware store, they will cut it to size for you.
- Take your heavy-weight fabric and lay it out. Cut the width to be about 1” wider than your dowel on both sides. TIP: Length of the fabric is dependent on your door size
- Then, you’ll fold and glue in the fabric about an inch on each side, leaving the fabric to be the width of your dowel. TIPS: You’ll want to fold it in so that the ends don’t fray. You can use hot glue, Fabri-Tac or hem tape
- Glue your fabric to the wooden dowel with hot glue AND Fabri-Tac.
- Then, on the backside of the dowel, staple the fabric to it as well for extra security.
- Roll over the fabric to hide the dowel.
- Use hot glue AND Fabri-Tac to attach your canvas bags to the fabric. TIP: Space them out according to the size of the bags. Let Fabri-Tac set for 24 hours
- Attach ribbon to the dowel with a stapler and hot glue gun, and use a door wreath hanger to hang your shoe organizer
