Painted Organization Tags

Hey y’all! Back to school is upon us and I’m ready… ready to get organized that is!  I love that there are so many great storage options out there these days, but as a true crafter at heart, sometimes they need a little  sprucing up.  Today I’m going to show you how to make these adorable chevron Painted Organization Tags and you can get organized in style!


I recently gave my tween daughter a closet overhaul.  We were desperately in need to storage options for her. She is entering middle school and her wardrobe and accessories are growing. We needed to move the mess off the floor and have a place for everything.  We added rods and shelves and boxes… lots of boxes.  Those boxes needed some cute tags and what tween girl out there doesn’t love chevron?  Let’s learn how to make them!


Supplies needed for Painted Organization Tags:


Step One.  If your wooden shape has not been primed or painted.  Give it a coat of white paint.  I used Americana Cotton Ball in the Multi-Surface Satin line of paint.  Let dry completely.


Step Two.  Lay your stencil on top of your shape and paint with the gray color.  Gently lift off the stencil and let the shape dry completely.


Step Three.  We decided to use four bin organizers on the top of my daughter’s closet to hold clothes for each season.  I used alphabet stickers from the craft store to label the tags.  You can also use your personal cutting machine.  Whatever you have on hand!   Now attach to your bins with a hot glue gun or a clothespin and you are all done.


You can also use a punched tag in the same way and tie the tag to a storage bin with ribbon or twine.  The options are endless!

This is a great project to tackle for Back to School to get off on the right foot!

Need a little organization plan for school lunches? I created a school lunch station for my girls last year that worked great and we will be using it again this year.

Organizing takes a bit of time up front, but really saves time when it is needed!
