Scarf Hanger



Okay, honesty time. I'm a female. I like to shop. So I tend to accumulate lots of must need clothes, shoes, and accessories. My sister actually recently asked me if I've counted how many shoes I have lately. Ha! No! I don't want to know how many I have, I just know I always want more! Plus I don't want Chris to catch wind of the number, he probably would call me ridiculous. : )

She can't talk though. She recently told me she has 12, that's right, 12 pairs of jeans! And she said if I need new jeans I should shop in her closet first! Heck yah free jeans!

One accessory I have a lot of are scarfs. Scarfs are great if you need something more to your outfit, but don't want to wear a necklace or if you need a pop of color. My scarf organization isn't the greatest, though. I just have a cloth bin in my closet that I toss them all in, requiring me to riffle through all of them to find one. When I stumbled upon this post on meet.make.laugh I knew I had a solution to my scarf storage.



Here is what I did...

What you need:
  • Hanger
  • Shower curtain rings {I used metal}
  • Yarn
  • Jute
  • Hot glue gun



I started by wrapping my hanger and rings in the green yarn {isn't it a pretty color!}. I decided to use the curtain rings because the were small, which allowed me to have lots of loops. The ladies of meet.make.laugh used headbands for the loops. I sure you could use just about anything!



I'm not going to lie, this was a bit of a time consuming process. But well worth it.

Next I attached my rings to the hanger and each other using the jute.



And that is pretty much it. Not hard to do, but time consuming because of all the wrapping.

What do you think of the finished project?



Great, right?!



I love being able to see all of my scarf hung up. Makes it much easier to pick one out. What is also great about this project is that if I need more loops, I can always add more rings! Since I now have the room, I may buy more scarfs!

  1. Wow! This is a great idea! Especially considering I bought something like this for 10 buckaroos and it only holds 5 scarves! Thank you for stopping by my blog!

  2. Very, very cute. Wouldn't that work great for guy's ties, too...although it might need rings that were a little big bigger- xo Diana

  3. Stephanie this is awesome, I tried this once and the scarfs were sliding all over the place, I didn't even think about gluing the circles together- great idea!
