How to Organize Your Scarf Collection


If you're like me and think scarves are the next best accessory after shoes, then you probably have lots of them and not a whole bunch of space to keep them handy, yet organized at the same time. I literally had mine stuffed and exploding out of a rubbermaid container.

 
I mean seriously?! There was no containing that disaster area and heaven forbid I would be running late and want the scarf on the bottom. I had seen a few times on Pinterest where someone used hangers and shower curtain hooks to organize their scarves, but of course I never did anything about it because that hot mess above was working perfect for me (sarcasm). Finally, my sister said she was going to do it, so I caved and joined the scarf organizing club.
 This is literally the cheapest project I've ever completed. I already had the black plastic hangers and then I purchased the cheapest shower curtain hooks from Target ($1.19 a pack). I hooked 2 rings on the outer part of each side divider so the hanger would always be semi-balanced when hanging. Then, I snapped the remaining hooks in the middle area.
 Since I put together two hangers for this project, I dedicated one to my most worn scarves and my lighter fabric ones. The second one I hung all my heavy winter-ish scarves on. I then began looping the scarves on each hook by either color or pattern.
I freed up some space on a shelf where I no longer needed that bulky rubbermaid container and I hung my most worn and lighter scarves in one area of my closet where I'll have easy access and then I hung the heavier scarves with my sweaters, jackets etc.

Have you tried and projects you found on Pinterest lately?
