DIY Sunglasses Storage & Display Organizer #12MonthsofDIY
Take a look at this drawer and tell me you don’t one have one exactly like it in your house.
We all do. Ours is in the kitchen. Yours might be there too. Even if it’s not though, you know where it is. And just thinking about it is making your cringe, isn’t it?
Don’t fret my friends. I am here to help.
That drawer is now empty. All thanks to my handy dandy DIY Sunglasses storage and display organizer.
Making THIS was SO FREAKIN’ EASY! A little bit of ribbon (the ‘theme’ for this month’s #12MonthsofDIY project) was the key to success for this one.
– Foam core or stiff cardboard
– Fabric glue or spray adhesive
– Glue gun & glue
– Ribbon (assorted)
– Wood frame
The first step was to cut the foam core to the right size for the wood frame. Next I put some fabric glue down (you could also use spray adhesive) and put down a scrap of Tonic Living fabric leftover from recovering the dining room chairs & making the faux roman blinds.
After warming up my trusty glue gun, I put down three wide bands of ribbon. I didn’t measure, rather I just eyeballed it to make sure they were relatively evenly spaced and fit a pair of glasses.
On one of the wider bands I layered another ribbon on top before adding in the final ribbon which would hold the glasses.
For the final ribbon, I tacked it at even intervals across the entire thing so I could store five or six pairs per row. The whole thing got tacked with glue at the back and presto, it was done!
The whole thing took under thirty minutes and is already in regular use. I am loving seeing all the various glasses we’ve got so we can pick and choose, not worry about scratches in the drawer, or worse – forgetting about them!
….and while a bit blurry…too cute to not include. Hermann’s such a cool dude.
It’s got a nice slim profile too!
Such a fun and simple project and just one of the MANY fun things you can do with ribbon. Just check out what the awesome talent of #12MonthsofDIY made with ribbon this month. Oh, and don’t forget to join us on Instagram for our monthly challenge!
