Welcome back from the long winter break! With a fresh start to a new semester, you may be wondering how to stay organized. Perhaps sticky notes are all over your desk, or reminders are flooding your phone.

One of the crafts this week is to help you stay organized without wasting paper or losing your sticky notes. Also, there is a cheap and easy craft to help you keep your scarves in order. This is the beginning of a new semester and it’s your choice to start it off right!

Dry Erase Picture Frame
Materials:
Picture frame
A piece of paper
Ribbon
Hot glue and hot glue gun
Pencil
Scissors
Dry-erase marker

Step 1: Take the back off of the picture frame.

Step 2: Trace the back of the frame with a pencil onto the paper and cut it out.

Step 3: Place the paper into the frame and reattach the back.

Step 4: Cut a piece of ribbon and tie it in a bow.

Step 5: Hot glue the bow onto the frame.

Step 6: Now you can write reminders on the glass with a dry erase marker!

Tip: You can find all of these materials at the dollar store!

Scarf Hanger
Materials:
Hanger
Shower Hooks

Step 1: Put shower hooks unclasped on hanger.

Step 2: Put scarves on hooks and clasp hooks together.

Step 3: Hang it wherever you want!

Tip: If you use a plastic hanger, the hanger could bow in the middle because of the weight of the scarves. You may want to use a heavier hanger like the one pictured.
