Make Your Own Belt Holder

I'm still working, little by little, on my sons World Traveler Room.  So far I've shared with you the Star Wall Hooks and the DIY Headboard

I recently moved  a desk that was in  my toy room (not my  downstairs toy closet, I'm talking about my upstairs toy room, which I plan on sharing with you) into his room and brought his dresser into my other boys' room.  Leaving NO more room for a dresser in here.

That was okay with me, because I had a PLAN for his clothing.  They are now in his closet, on a bookshelf, that was also moved from the toy room.  I still have to get the bins to store his clothing, BUT I know exactly what I want and will definitely share his clothing storage soon.

I wanted to create something to hang his belts on, and stumbled upon THIS POST over at Dittle Dattle.  I believe it's only proper to give credit where credit is due and I'll tell you,  after seeing her boys belt holder, I was inspired!!

Here's the Belt Holder that I created:
Again, giving credit where credit is due, I must tell you: I knew that I wanted a board and hooks and paper and mod podge, BUT I wanted something more than just the word "Belts" on the board.

So I, like I often do, called my mother and she reminded me of the "Armor of God" scripture verse and that it talks about the belt of truth.  I went over to Bible Gateway and looked up the verse. It's SO perfect!! NOW, as my eleven year old gets dressed, he can reach for a belt and see this.  A wonderful reminder each morning!!

Want to make one too? It's SO EASY!!  Here's the tutorial:
 Get a plain wooden board from any craft store, 
or maybe you have some extra scraps of wood kicking around.
 Paint the edges of the board.  
After it dries, trim a piece of scrapbook paper to fit the front of the board...
... and using mod podge, glue the paper on.

 Click on the image above to print THIS FREE PRINTABLE and trim it down.
(Please remember that all my Free printables are for PERSONAL USE only.)
 I used a brown stamp pad and inked the edges a bit, to give it a little more antique look.
Mod Podge the verse on top of your scrapbook paper.
add some hooks...
   Add a sawtooth hanger to the back of the board...
  Hang it on the wall.  Hang your belts from the hooks
... and you get a unique belt holder.

Happiest Memorial Day to you all!
