Door hanger/organizer craft project

I love these craft project ideas from Disney FamilyFun magazine that I find on the wire service at work! Here's another one worth sharing because it's an item that is not only easy to make, but it just might come in handy – and not only for families with children.


Craft time: Make a handy door organizer

Disney FamilyFun magazine

Hang this organizer on your front door and never lose your keys, sunglasses, or other essentials again. Sticky notes help remind family members of more ephemeral matters.

From a 12- by 18-inch sheet of craft foam, cut out the pieces as shown in the diagram. Line up the tops of the front and back panels and stick them together with double-sided tape. Stack the inner pocket on top so that it aligns with the bottom edge of the back panel, as shown. Align a strip of duct tape with the top edge of the pocket and wrap the tape around the stack.

Fold the bottom section of the front panel over the inner pocket and secure the sides with duct tape. Roll up the spacer piece and tape it closed, then tape it near the bottom of the back of the organizer. (This will help the organizer hang flat.)

Punch two holes in the outer pocket and link a short length of ball chain through them. Add a small carabiner to the chain. Use double-sided tape to attach a pad of sticky notes above the doorknob hole.
