How to make a child friendly wardrobe from toys

Every parent knows the dreaded floordrobe. It's like a monster, all jumper arms and trouser legs, as your kids get home from school and their uniform ends up in a crumpled heap near the bed. Argh!

Inspire your kids to take more control and get their clothes off the floor. Watch this video and discover an affordable solution to re-purpose toys they no longer play with into fun hooks using Sugru.

Sugru is ideal for this project because it bonds to most materials, which means you can turn anything you already have lying around the home into a hook. There's no need to buy expensive new fittings!

For this project, you'll need one single-use pack.

Step 1 – Roll one single-use pack of Sugru into two balls and press them firmly onto your object. Then mould them into pyramid shapes with your fingers.

Step 2 – Press firmly onto the door so Sugru pushes out the sides. Then gently rub the edges to make it nice and smooth.

Step 3 – Use masking tape to hold the toy in place and leave it to set.

In 24 hours, your kids won’t be able to resist hanging their clothes on their awesome new hooks. Hooray!

There's a satisfaction to solving problems and saving money at the same time, especially when you can get hands on.

Check out these affordable, DIY solutions for everyday problems.

Forget the replacement. Fix broken toys with Sugru!

3. Make awesome storage solutions

We all find treasures on our travels — those little mementos that remind you of an amazing place we visited and don’t want to forget.

Instead of spending money on expensive storage fittings, why not capture that piece of your holiday and give it a new purpose at home! Every time you use it you'll be transported somewhere special.

4. Conquer shoe mountain
