Make a Simple Holder for Felt Letters

This time I'd like to complement the felt board idea from last time by adding a simple DIY holder for the felt letters you may have made for your toddler. 

It might help you organize play space for your kids.

DIY plastic holder

The idea is NOT MINE, you need to thank Bianca at Madame Criativa, the girl made adorably cute monster-theme holders from plastic shampoo bottles. Have a look at her site!

I had an empty shampoo bottle at hand and at the same time no idea where to put the newly cut felt letters I showed you in one of my previous posts. If I stored them somewhere away from the felt board, the letters would probably not be used by our kid - you know, out of sight, out of mind :)

I used the above idea to make a simple, plain white version of the holder. Yes, it's a bit boring, but
  • it's functional
  • zero cost (reusing empty package)
  • made in nearly no time
It worked perfectly!

As you see it's not much work: I cut an empty and clean plastic bottle at the height of approximately  two-thirds of the bottle, and made a hole in a size that exactly matched the door knob of our Ikea Billy bookcase door.

That's all. Many thanks, Bianca!
