i! I'm Jennifer, and I have a blog called Gomming. While Lacy and fam are away, she asked me to fill in! I'm currently in the middle of my project for the Monthly Challenge and have been trying to figure out how I can re-use things that just aren't working for me anymore instead of tossing them. I'm also looking for ways to organize my space without spending extra dollars, so this project fit the bill.
While digging through my stuff, I found a metallic belt that I loved but didn't fit anymore. I've been sketching ideas of an organizer made of looped strips of leather and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to use my belt!
Wanna make your own? You'll need:
-An old belt (or leather)
-Dremel or Drill, Screws (or even brad nails and hammer. Whatever you have!)
-Material for piece (I used found wood.)
This process is very easy! All you need to do is cut your pieces to a uniform size, then shape into your loop. Mark the center of your piece, then start to attach, like so:
Attach the other loops the same way. Feel free to measure (or eyeball it like I did.) You'll end up with something like this:
To hang your piece, grab some soda can tabs! Find the instructions here.
Here's the organizer displayed in all her glory. I think it looks neat on my bulletin board and is perfect for hanging up glasses & keeping my necklaces tangle-free! I wish my belt had been longer so I could make more loops, but this'll do for now.
Here's a bonus project! Long rubber bands + clipboard = inspiration keeper.
