6 months: First aid for nesting urge
Has the nesting urge already kicked in? Instead of buying new products, you can also make them yourself. Fun to do and better for the earth. To give those cute baby clothes a place in the baby room, here's a DIY for a nice clothes rack. Level of difficulty: child can do the laundry.
YOU NEED THIS
- Two sturdy pieces of rope
- Wooden stick
- Large wooden beads (natural or in a cheerful color)
- Optional glue
- Ceiling hooks
THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE IT
You have several options for hanging the clothes rack. For example, directly on the ceiling with ceiling hooks or under a wall shelf by drilling 2 holes in the shelf through which you thread the rope. Determine how much rope and beads you need based on how high you want to hang the rack.
Tie two pieces of string to the ends of the wooden stick. You can put some glue between the rope and the wood to make sure the rope doesn't slide.
Thread the beads on both pieces of string until you have reached the right size. If the rope frays too much during stringing, you can put a piece of tape on the end.
- Then tie a loop in the ends of the rope so that you can easily hang the clothes rack on two hooks.
TIP! As a variation, you can also use a branch instead of a wooden stick. You can also make the clothes rack without beads and, for example, choose thicker rope. Then drill two holes on the outside of the wooden stick through which you can thread the thick rope. Make a good knot in the rope under the stick so that the stick hangs firmly.
