These wall pockets are perfect for finally ridding your home of the piles of papers that accumulate everywhere. Believe it or not, these are made from cardboard and fabric for around $15-30 each!
Not only was I able to customize them to match any décor, but I saved about $85 on each! Wooden wall pockets like this retail for about $100. I used designer fabric because I wanted them to look store bought, but you could realistically make one for $10 or less by buying remnant fabric and the other supplies on sale. Watch for 40% off coupons for Jo-Ann Fabrics. You can use the coupon on almost anything, including fabric.
I based these wall pockets on Nike’s design from Chose To Thrive and made a few adjustments.
All you need to make these is cardboard, strong spray glue, duct tape, scissors, an X-acto knife, and the fabric(s) of your choice. We added grommets for hanging and Nike added label holders and a phrase. You can find the tutorial for these here.
I’ve had ours up for about 5 months and it is loaded with file folders and papers. It is very sturdy and hasn’t shown any signs of weakening. I’m thinking of adding our last name to the top of mine, like this:
What do you think?
P.S.- Not our last name.
