A drying rack and an organizer in one, this vertical clothesline brings instant order to even the tiniest entryway.
Have your kids decorate a dozen or so wooden clothespins with permanent markers. If they'd like assigned spots for their mittens, hats, and gloves, they can label the pins or dream up a color-coding system.
Cut a length of durable cord or plastic twine (ours is ribbon cord and extends from the ceiling to 2 feet above the floor). Thread the cord through the clothespins' springs, knotting it beneath each pin as you go.
Hang the line from a ceiling hook.
