Kids Room Organizers
So being home during the stay home order has really got me organizing! Any one else? This kiddo’s room, though. Shew... she has so many little things she likes to collect, so many goodies she likes to hide... and “lose” all over the place... I had to come up with something to help get it all managed. And now that we are reading, I’m labeling everything!!!
Everything I’m using in this tutorial came from the dollar store! They have all the spring colors out and I’m living for it! For this project you’ll need:
- 3 laundry hampers
- 3 plant hangers
- zip ties
- anchoring ceiling hook
I used three baskets based on my cowling height but if you need more or less that is up to your space! I counted the number holes on the top line of the basket, it was an even 36, perfect! Space the chains out every 12 holes and clip them on, leave the top hook intact to hang it up once it’s done.
You will need to do this for the next 2 sets of plant hangers. It was easy to do with no tools but you may need a pair of pliers to separate the parts.
Each chain will be attached to the bottom using zip ties. Count and space evenly to ensure it hangs nice and level.
Evenly spaced and zip tied on, depending on what you plan on using the baskets for you may want to double up on zip ties to make it more secure, we’re just hanging stuffies so I thought one would be strong enough.
Continue the same way as the top basket, using the clips provided to connect the next basket and zip ties to connect the next chain until you have your desired height!
Use a hook with an anchor made for the weight of your items in the ceiling, and hang up your creation, load it up with goodies and reveal it to your little! Ours thought it looked light a hot air balloon! Oh the possibilities!

I wouldn’t use it in my kids room but would be great in the laundry room!
How does your child reach the top 2 baskets? They look pretty high.
Seriously? A chain wrapped around d their neck? Stuffed animals falling on them? Get a grip on reality. This is a great idea..
It's a cute idea, but can children actually reach the top basket?
