DIY Chip Holder - Organize Your Pantry

DIY Chip Holder - Natural Homemade Living

It's hard to believe August is almost halfway over and the kids are getting ready to go back to school. Where did the summer go?
We've been busy camping, working on projects, organizing and redecorating so we'll have some cool stuff to share once things settle down. Today I wanted to share my favorite pantry organizing tip, the DIY chip holder.
I don't usually buy chips in small bags but for camping these little bags are perfect. I used to store them in a large basket but it seemed like it was a mess when everyone was digging through a basket to find their favorite chips. I decided to make a holder for them and hung it inside the pantry door. It was a quick little project and the kids love it! Most of the items I already had in my craft baskets so the project only cost $3.00.

What You Need:
Rulers - I bought the craft rulers at Michael's (4 in a package)
Small wood clothespins - you can get these at the craft store
Craft glue (or your favorite wood glue)
Removable mounting squares to attach the rulers to the door or wall


Instructions:
  1. Decide how many bags of chips for each ruler, I chose 12.
  2. Apply glue to one side of each clothespin and place it toward the top of the ruler.
  3. I applied one clothespin to each inch on the ruler.
  4. Let them dry according to the glue instructions. Mine took about an hour.
  5. Apply removable squares to the back of each ruler. I used 4 squares per ruler.
  6. I didn't have much wall space in my pantry so I hung my rulers on the inside of the door.
  7. Hang one chip bag on each clothespin. Done.
Hope you like it!
Love and peace,
Tammi
