DIY Watch Organizer.


Watch Organizer

My hands have been itching to do some crafts again.  I’ve been seeing these watch organizers being sold online (and I think I need one) but I didn’t want to spend Php 900.00 to Php 1500.00 for JUST A BOX!

Coincidentally, I have these leftover shoe boxes that’s calling for some DIY projects!  Plus, the rolls of felt I still have left!

So after hours of measuring, sewing and gluing last night, I finally have my own watch organizer and it didn’t even cost me a dime! =)  It’s not perfect, but it serves its purpose.  I actually need more glue sticks to glue the partitions in place, but that’s about it!

So don’t throw out those shoe boxes just yet.  With some creative thinking, you never know what could come out of that old thing! 😉

    1. Hi Lorrcua! Thank you for reading my blog.
      Wow, this is an old post. I’ll try my best though.
      The size of each slot depends on the size of the shoe box.
      I measured the length and width of the box. In my case, I could fit 8 compartments/slots.
      I used an empty cereal box (or you can use any kind of cardboard or other shoe boxes for these.
      Measure and cut 1 piece the same measurement as the length of the box and 3 shorter ones with the measure of the width of the box.
      For the longer cardboard, I marked every 3 inches and for the shorter ones, 3 inches as well. Technically just half of its length.
      I cut the markings leaving 1.5 inch in tact.
      Then connected them together.
      Covered everything in black felt, even the shoe box and placed the cardboards in place. I used a glue gun to secure the partitions further. You may also use wrapping papers or left over fabrics to cover.
      And viola! You have a DIY watch organiser.
      For the mini pillows, I just used different coloured felt and leftover fillers.
      I hope this helped you though.
      Good luck in your crafting! If ever you made one of these, hope you send me a link! 😉
