Wall hanging organisers are a practical and convenient storage solution for both children and adults. Not only are they functional, but they also serve as an excellent way to add a touch of personal style, if crafted by yourself. You can use a range of materials and colours that match your desirable décor so, today I am using crafts sticks, one of the easily available and cute crafts materials.
