DIY Scarf Organizer

I have been collecting more and more scarves lately.  I finally acquired enough scarves that I was in need of something on which to hang them.  First I found this scarf organizer at Bed Bath and Beyond, but I didn't need it bad enough to spend $8 on it.  Then I found a DIY scarf organizer on Pinterest using a hanger and shower curtain rings.  That would mean I have to go out and buy shower curtain rings.  Yeah, that wasn't gonna happen.  So I created my own cheap (free) version of the DIY scarf organizer.

Start with a hanger.  Find one that has the little hangy-hooks on each side as pictured.
Then you'll need a few rubber bands.
First, stretch a rubber band horizontally from one of the hangy-hooks to the other.
Then start stretching the other rubber bands across the hanger vertically, lining them up evenly.
Take your scarves and loop them through the holes.  Hang and store.  That's it.
OK, so I know I'm being kind of cheap here, but it wasn't something that I wanted to spend money on, so I found a way to make something to fit my needs for free.  Isn't that what being frugal is all about? ;)

  1. This is such a great idea, Sarah! I love the grid design inside the empty space of the hanger, and for a grand total of nothing, this is such an easy way to store your scarves! Thanks for sharing with me!
