Amazing 5-Minute Scarf Hanger

Nate and I share a master closet.  And I'm using the term "master" very loosely.  It's not nearly big enough to fit all of our things, let alone fit all of our things in an organized fashion.  Being that I am not willing to adopt a nudist mentality in order to downsize our stuff, we need to get creative.

This hanger is really wonderful and so simple, I can't believe it's taken me this long to make one!  The materials are incredibly cheap, and in most cases, you already have them on hand!

You'll need:

  • a plastic hanger
  • plastic shower-curtain rings (scored these from the Dollar Tree)
  • plastic zip ties (another Dollar Tree win)
  • scissors

Start by laying out your hanger and rings.  You could make two rows of rings if you wanted it, but I didn't because
A. I don't have that many scarves,
B. They will lay on top of each other, making it bulky and hard to sift through and
C. It will get really heavy!

Attach the rings horizontally first, then to the hanger.  My tip when attaching is have the "end" sticking outside of the ring.  That way, when you trim them down, the sharp edge will be less likely to snag.  A little nail file will fix any major cutting potential.

Once you've got your row, do the same to attach everything to the hanger.  As you can see, I started with only three ties in my attachment processes, but once I started hanging scarves, I could tell the weight needed more support and added a tie to every ring.

In the same time it takes to make a bag of microwave popcorn, you've got a neat little rack perfect to keep your dressed and organized!

This is awesome! I'm not sure how I got here but I just saw someone use shower rings to orgnaize belts. Was that you?? Using them for scarves is so great! It would make pulling one out for use without dragging all the others down too much easier.

I’d love it if you would share this at my “That’s My Style” Link party this Friday!
