My goal was to make a scarf organizer with the following qualities:

- easy to sort through (to find the right scarf)
- easy to put scarves away
- minimized funky wrinkling
- doesn't take too much space
- could handle a lot of scarves (I've got 15 after the last purge)
- modular (so I can always have the right number of hooks)
- relatively inexpensive (mine cost $9)
- hanging

This was my solution inspired primarily by the diy globe cluster lights that have been making the rounds.

You could buy one of the many types of scarf hangers, but the ones I've tried are often too much work (to put away, to find the scarf you want) or take too much room, or are too expensive. Boxing is also an option (either all in one box, or each folded in its own box), but I've got space to hang objects, less to shelve them.

Step 1: Implements of Destruction (i.e. Tools)

You need:

- Two sets of Pliers
- Two Hands

Thanks Melissa!
Hi, Luminesia<br><br>I love your idea. However, I can't find shower curtain hooks that are large enough for some of my winter scarves. Can you tell me something else I can use instead?<br><br>Thanks!
Hrmrm.<br><br>I think the best bet would be to try basketry hoops or embroidery hoops. They're both a little more expensive, but you can usually buy sets of 6 or more to reduce the per item price. Also, you'll be able to vary the size a bit.<br><br>Another alternative would be to poke around thrift shops for inexpensive purses which have round (typically bamboo) handles and cut away the purse.<br><br>Let me know if that helps.<br><br>~L
this is awesome. Just today (!) my scarf drawer kind of broke, because it is too full. Now I've got a neat solution, thanks!
Very good idea. I have to head to the dollar store today to get some little cowboys and indians for my son. I think I will pick up a pack of shower curtains as well! Thanks!!
You're welcome! Post a photo of what you come up with! Cheers, Luminesia
when i saw this i knew i had to do it. it came out really neat, but instead of a hanger i used a hook that i screwed into the wall to hang. thanx for the great idea
I know this is replying a little late, but ...<br /> <br /> That's pretty awesome! &nbsp;Thanks for sharing.<br /> <br /> =)<br /> <br />
Very cool! I just happen to have a couple sets of shower rings around somewhere . . .
That is pretty neat; thanks for sharing!
what about putting the shower curtain rings on a hanger instead of buying the chains and such, and you can find shower curtain rings at the dollar store :) Just a suggestion,But if I think about it ,Your idea is prettier and gives the scarves a store feel!
I think you could do that to save a little effort mucking with the chain, but the chain adds length so it's easier to sort through a whole bunch of scarves. But for the sake of space, ease of construction, and having a place to hang the scarves, I think it'd be a good alternative. Thanks for the compliment.
Clever and simple!
Thank you!
