DIY Hammock Toy Storage

A quick DIY solution to your kid's scattered toys!

Every mom faces the battle of keeping our kid's mess everyday. Toys and books are scattered everywhere and we don't have a choice because these are kids and they need to play to develop themselves. That is why, we endure that every day struggle of keeping the toys scattered on the floors, bed, sofa and just anywhere!

But I discovered a simple solution for you. If you do not have cardboard boxes for toy storage, then grab tulle, an old tshirt, an old blanket and just whatever fabric, even a big towel or a curtain will work well for this hack.

You can make a Hammock toy storage which will only take a few minutes to finish. Well, if you choose the simpler way of making it, you will be able to finish it in less than 15 minutes. But in my DIY Hammock Toy Storage, I add some girly features on it so it can double as a wall decor.

See? It looks nice on the wall. So, if you have a blank wall, you can use up that space with a wall storage like this. Like what I said, it is very easy to make.

What You Need:

Tulle or any type of cloth/fabric
Ribbon or string
Wall hooks (to skip the nailing or screwing part, buy those with double adhesive at the back)

How to Make:

1. Simple. Get the tulle or fabric and fold it into two. Tie both ends with a ribbon or string.

2. Get your wall hooks. You can skip this step if you want to. I added faux flowers on my wall hooks to add beauty to it. Use hot glue to attach the flowers. After doing that, attach the hook on the wall. See to it that your spacing is right and both are leveled because you will hang your hammock here.

3. Install on the wall. In the image below, you can see how everything was put together. Hang the tulle on the ribbon part. You can also tie it on the hook to make sure it will not fall.

4. Put the toys on your hammock and you are all done!

I told you this is going to be very easy! I made this like 6 months ago and I still have this on my wall. Works really well. And my daughter learned how to keep her own toys too on this hammock.

You can make one for your child and once you did, I'd love to see how you made yours! If you don't want this kind of toy storage, you can make the Cardboard Toy Box using unused cardboard boxes in the house.
