Hey y'all!  It's Trish from Uncommon Designs and I'm ready... ready to get organized!  I love that there are so many great storage options out there these days, but as a true crafter at heart, sometimes they need a little  sprucing up.  Today I'm going to show you how to make these adorable chevron painted organization tags and you can get organized in style! 

Items Needed:

  • Unfinished Or White Wooden Shapes
  • Chevron Stencil
  • Alphabet Stickers
  • Paint Brush
  • Palette
  • Water Basin


I recently gave my tween daughter a closet overhaul.  We were desperately in need to storage options for her.  We needed to move the mess off the floor and have a place for everything.  We added rods and shelves and boxes... lots of boxes.  Those boxes needed some cute tags and what tween girl out there doesn't love chevron?  Let's learn how to make them!

If your wooden shape has not been primed or painted.  Give it a coat of white paint.  I used Cotton Ball in the Multi-Surface Satin line of paint.  Let dry completely.

Lay your stencil on top of your shape and paint with the gray color.  Gently lift off the stencil and let the shape dry completely

We decided to use four bin organizers on the top of my daughter's closet to hold clothes for each season.  I used alphabet stickers from the craft store to label the tags.  You can also use your personal cutting machine.  Whatever you have on hand!   Now attach to your bins with a hot glue gun or a clothespin and you are all done.

You can also use a punched tag in the same way and tie the tag to a storage bin with ribbon or twine.  The options are endless!
