Step 1: Cut a piece of plywood

I cut a shape of 7mm outdoor plywood to fit a baker's shelf on the back porch but a rectangle would work just as well. Paint the plywood if desired.

Step 2: Gloves hang from clothespins

Find  strong clothespins with two holes in each side. This is the style I like.

Step 3: String to tie clothespins to plywood

I used a strong synthetic garden string.

Step 4: Drill holes

The holes need to be spaced to thread string through the holes in the clothespins. I also drilled holes to  hang the rack up.

Step 5: Thread string

Thread the string through the holes in the clothespins and the plywood. I put a little masking tape on the end of the string to make threading easier.

Step 6: Tie the string at the back

Not necessary, but a little duct tape is always welcome.

Attach the glove rack to a shelf or wall, clip on gloves.

I'd hang the gloves upside down though to prevent the rain from filling them up. (unless they're under some cover)

Yes, ours is under cover, but hanging them upside down is a good idea.

Nine clips? How many gardeners are there in your family??

ClareBS (author)  Kiteman4 years ago
Just two but nine clips seemed to go well on the curve. We each have thin weeding gloves, two kinds of thick waterproof gloves, leather gloves and we still have a few pairs sitting in a big pot on the shelf.

Very nice. I think you could also use it for gloves and mittens in the winter.

I love this!! I keep losing my gardening gloves and this will help me keep track of them. I probably have 4 different kinds of outdoor gloves for different tasks & this will keep them all in one place. Great idea!!
