DIY SCHOOL DAY CHALKBOARD HANGERS

School days are starting back in full force here in the South and so is the chaos that comes with them.  There is no reason why everyday tasks like getting the Littles dressed for school should be stressful and shouldn't be fun.
These DIY school day chalkboard hangers are a fun way to include the Littles in their wardrobe choices and also have a plan for the week to keep morning meltdowns at bay.

I started with five chalkboard hangers from Walmart and Liquid Chalkers chalk pens from Paper and Twine.  Testing out how I wanted to write the days of the week on the hangers was easy with these chalkers.  They go on like a paint pen, have the look of a chalk pen and wipe off clean with a wet cloth.

You would want to use these chalkers instead of regular chalk so that the days of the week actually stay on the board during use and not on your Littles' hands or clothing.

Note:  Make sure that you are using a non-porous chalkboard hanger or it will be tough to get the chalk pen off once it is dried.  If you have this problem take a little finger nail polish remover to it and it comes right off. These chalkers do not work on porous surfaces, so remember to test a small spot and allow to dry overnight then try to remove before you use them on any large surfaces.




Next I used five large decorative style Command Hooks and placed them on the door.  I was careful to measure out enough space to hang all of the hangers with clothes on them.  You may want to actually hang an outfit or two on the hangers and then test the space before you stick the hook to your door.

I was lucky enough to find some cute pink children's hangers with the pants clips on them at Walmart.  They are great because you can hang the entire outfit together.  They also have the strap grooves so that Little Miss' tiny shirt straps don't fall off the hanger.  I love these things!


Now you are ready to pick out a week's worth of school outfits and be prepared for anything that may come...well maybe not, but at least this is one thing off your morning to do list!

Be sure to check out the Liquid Chalkers!  They are a fun way to label anything while preparing for back to school.

    1. Please do share Stephanie! You could use them for yourself as well, just write in a different font to make it classy. You can never be too organized for work as well. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Ummm, why don't I have kids so I have a reason to make these. These are so stinkin' cute!! I pinned this so that one day I'll remember this (however long that is away). This is such a great way to stay organized during the back-to-school madness. Plus chalk markers are my favorite.
