diy: Fabric Wrapped Scarf Holder



I know summer is barely over, but I can't stop thinking about autumn. It's my favorite season, so of course my collection of scarves has been slowly growing. For the past couple of months, I've been trying to figure out ways to organize my room and closet. This is one solution, at least for the scarves! It's also super inexpensive to make. See how I made it below:








Supplies:

- Shower curtain rings...quantity is up to you!
I used 24 rings, or 2 packs of 12. Each package was $1 from the Dollar Store.
- Fabric scraps. I used denim and black faux leather.
- Thick string or cord of your choice. I chose black hemp.
- Hanger and ribbon of your choice
(Wrap the ribbon around your hanger, hot gluing every so often. I wrapped up this hanger a few years ago!)
- Hot glue gun, glue gun sticks and scissors (not shown)




1) Cut the fabric into roughly half inch thick strips, as long as you can make them. Don't worry too much about making them perfectly straight.





2) Tightly wrap strips of fabric around the curtain rings, applying hot glue every so often.





3) If a strip of fabric is too short, simply glue the end down and continue wrapping with another strip.




4) Keep going until you're all done!





5) After figuring out how you'd like to position your rings (I decided to do 4 rows, 6 columns, with the columns alternating denim and leather) tightly tie the rings together using the cord of your choice. I'd recommend wrapping the cord around two or three times for extra security.






I tied them in groups of 4, horizontally speaking, by type of fabric.




6) Tie the rows together so that everything is connected.





7) Attach the rings to the hanger, again wrapping two to three times. If you'd like, apply a dot of clear nail polish to each of the knots to further secure them.




Hang your scarves through the rings! Easy, inexpensive and extremely useful.

  15. Or you can go to ikea and spend 10 bucks for one exactly like it, and save yourself the time and money. The one from Ikea is really is bigger and I have many around my home for storage use. -

  19. I love this. I have more scarves then I know what to do with! This would keep my life really organized. How much did you end up spending on all of the supplies? And, for the denim and faux leather, did you purchase it? or just have it lying around?
