home: made [ wall organisers ]

We love a bit of recycling, especially when you can make something useful for the home. These wall organisers are made from empty moisturising bottles – that’s it!

After carefully removing any labels, draw on your desired shape, making sure you have a hole so you can hang it, and cut it out. It’s that simple and looks really good.

Try different bottle sizes and styles depending on what you need to put in them.
