GET YOUR CORDS UNDER CONTROL- a great school hack!
Nothing is more frustrating than a tangled mess of cords that wastes time and space. That’s why we have started to use VELCRO® Brand ONE-WRAP® ties. They are perfect for hair styling tools!
1. Secure a tie to each cord by inserting rounded end through the hole in the strap and pulling tight.
2. Each time you want to put it away all you have to do is coil your cord around your hand and wrap the tie around cords and back onto itself to secure.
STORE HOME IMPROVEMENT SUPPLIES
I hate having all of my screws, bolts, and nails all hidden in a messy drawer that isn’t even close to being organized. You’re going to love this home improvement organization with VELCRO® BRAND Industrial Strength – Low Profile fasteners. I love being able to see my supplies and keeping my workbench tidy.
- Take jars that can fit your supplies and apply the ovals to the jar lids.
- Apply the other side of the ovals to where you’d like it placed under your shelf.
*It takes about 24 hours for the adhesive to fully set. Wait that time before applying adding weight to either side.
CREATE CHEAP ART
Cool wall art can be ridiculously expensive, especially when our tastes change so frequently. This interchangeable wall art idea is a cheap hack for that problem
- Pick a fabric to match the decor of your space and cut a piece that is a few inches larger than an old canvas.
- Lay the fabric with the right side down and place the canvas right side down on top.
- Add a piece of VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics to the four corners of the canvas.
- Peel away the release liner and press the fabric into the adhesive.
EASILY HANG FRAMES
I love creating DIY wall art for my space, but it was always so hard to figure out the best way to hang without damaging the walls until I found VELCRO® BRAND HANGABLES™ Removable Wall fasteners. They’re the best removable wall fasteners.
- Place one side of the removable strip onto the back of your frame and the part with the peel tab on top of that.
- Use a level to make sure it is straight and adhere it to the wall.
*They have an easy peel tab for when it is time for a damage-free removal.
ORGANIZE YOUR MAKEUP
I hate having to dig through my makeup bag to find my mascara or the shade of lipgloss I need that day. I prefer it to be out in plain sight. This DIY Makeup organizer is an easy hack to make your morning routine easier.
- Take a pizza pan from the dollar store and spray paint it to match your room.
- Cut a small piece of VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Tape to fit on the back of each of your makeup products.
- When the spray paint is dry, attach the other side of the hook and loop fastener to the pan.
