Hanger Scarf Organizer

The fact that I love scarves is a total understatement  The fact that I have way too many would be a better statement. But for some reason I just can't resist those colorful scarves at rummage sales, clearance sales, and discount stores! They add some much needed color to some otherwise boring and drab outfits I have (I'm not sure why but I have a bad habit of buying black clothes, probably because they are so easy to match with each other!) so the colorful scarves really dress it up for very little. Plus they are such a cheap accessory ..I don't think I've ever paid over $3 for a scarf...even a new one!

Grab a hanger from your closet. Make sure it's sturdy and not make of wire (those will bend). Pick up an extra set of shower curtain hangers. I paid only $1.25 for a new pack from Target although I have seen them at many rummage sales and thrift stores. You might even have a spare set on hand! Put the shower curtain hangers on the hanger and snap them shut to keep them on.

Then just add your scarves through the loops. It's so easy! And don't they just look all pretty lined up in a neat row like that?

Now all your scarves can hang in a nice straight line on a hanger in your closet. This is perfect if you have very limited closet storage space like me! It also organizes them neatly so you don't have a big pile of scarves making a mess in your closet like I used to. I even have another couple loops so I could add a few more scarves to my collection! (Not that I need them!)

I own WAY too many as well!! I have mine hanging on the back of my bedroom door using over the door wreath hangers I got at 75% clearance last year after Christmas. I bent them so that they will hold more and they fit nicely. I do have to go through them though b/c they aren’t all clearly displayed as in your idea. But, it uses space I wasn’t using before and I try to keep them organized by style, type or color.

I actually use mine as decorations when I’m not wearing them. 🙂 They hang on little pegs on my walls, adding a “grand night in Morocco” feeling to my room. LOL… If I ever had to store mine in the closet, I’d do something like you did, but I’d use a dab of hot glue to keep each ring from sliding around, so that they didn’t all slide to one end. *grin*

What a genius idea for keeping scarves looking good and organized. I also have a number of scarves. You are definitely not alone there.

I am not a scarf person really, but I have a daughter who is…I’m sure she’ll love this idea. Especially since she recently moved and closet space is premium!

I borrow my daughter’s scarves. She has a bunch to chose from. Great idea 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

Have a beautiful day!

I opt for the scarf without the jacket nearly year round here in the Pacific Northwest. I too have a soft spot for scarfs. I’d guess that I have ten, I even made a couple of them.

What a good idea! I have at least 10 scarves (not counting the ones that have slipped off hooks, hanger, or got lost in drawers.) Thanks for sharing!

This is a great idea. I will look out my shower curtain rings from the bottom of the “might come in useful for something” shelf and make this right away. Thanks for the tip.

What a nifty idea. Would never have thought of that one. All my scarves are piled in a plastic bag on a hook in my closet….not for much longer.
