Hanging Storage DIYs You Can Craft Right Now

When there’s not enough space on the floor for everything we own, we start to look up and to devise new storage options. Hanging storage is one of them. It’s a solution for only for cluttered or small spaces but also for decors that could use some diversity in this sense or that would be enhanced by elements such as a hanging planter or a practical storage system for shoes and accessories. We’ll cover these ideas and several similar ones with the following examples.

Let’s start with this storage and display system for shoes that we found on Burkatron. It’s a grid made of wire mesh and it’s something anyone can create with very little effort. Basically you just have to figure out the shape and size you want for your shoe storage grid and then to cut the wire mesh accordingly. It’s a great DIY project that can turn out to be just what your walk-in closer or entryway needs.

A hanging planter can be a practical storage solution but also a suitable decor idea for just about any type of space. There are plenty of designs to choose from and this DIY macrame plant shelf is one of them. The project requires very few things: some twine, a square pot, a piece of plywood and a jigsaw and a drill. If you want, you can also sand down the shelf and then stain or paint it.

For things like blankets or even clothes and accessories, a basket could surely be practical. But having it sit on the floor may not be the best option in some cases so what if you hang it on a wall or on the back of a door? That could definitely work. Where do you get one? Well, it’s simple actually: you craft it yourself. It’s a simple crochet project which you can find out more about on Ravelry.

The idea is not only interesting but also very versatile. {found on glandis}.

Everyone knows that jars are extremely versatile and basically meant to be repurposed. You can turn them into all sorts of things but their most common use is as storage containers. Speaking of this, we came across a practical idea while browsing Thinkcrafts. Instead of displaying the repurposed jars on shelves, desks or tables, you could hang them to save space.

A simple tree branch is the main element needed to create a jewelry display system just like the one featured on Forthemakers. In addition to that, you’ll need some small hooks. In case you also want to decorate the branch, you could use paint and tape or colored embroidery floss. Hang the branch with fishing line. You might also need a drill to make holes in both ends of the branch.
