DIY Nursery Closet Dividers With Printables

DIY Closet Dividers

Even if you don’t fancy yourself a particularly crafty person, doing a couple of simple handmade projects for the nursery really makes it feel homey. Try taking fabric swatches to the craft store and find matching scrapbook paper. No doubt, you’ll find all kinds of ways to use the pretty paper in the nursery. With my paper, I made closet dividers and a memory box for some of H’s earliest keepsakes. I used a little of the leftover orange paper as a backdrop for framing sonogram pictures.

Closet Dividers

If you’d like to do the closet dividers yourself, simply cover plain closet dividers with paper, using Mod Podge as an adhesive. Dab a little superglue under the paper before you use Mod Podge so that the paper adheres well. I like these particular dividers best, because they’re easy to see in the closet. The most difficult part of this project is cutting the decorative paper the right size and shape, so I’ve provided a template for you. Thanks to my husband, Andy, for making these templates. Be sure to print “Actual Size” instead of “Scale to Fit” to ensure the right fit.

Memory Box

Mod Podge also works to cover a plain memory box. Get creative with how you cover it — anything goes. Use letter stickers to personalize the box with your little one’s name. This box will be the perfect place to store his little hospital bracelet when you get home from the hospital.

Happy crafting!

    Where can you buy the plain closet dividers?

  2. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
    some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
