diy: scarf collection storage


oh dear, what a mess :O

So its winter time down under and the scarves are coming out of hibernation and ready to put just that little touch to your outfit. But how should we organise and store them nicely?

well here's a quick diy!


you'll need :

- a coat hanger (preferably a wooden one as the plastic and metal ones aren't strong enough if you have a huge collection)
I got a pack of 3 for $2.50
- some shower curtain hooks/rings
I got a pack of 12 for $1.50
- and those awesome scarves



If your wondering what the size of the curtain hooks should be, mine are about 6cm in length and 3.5cm in width. If you have thick scarves I recommend bigger hooks, circular ones are nice too.



okay, so you've got your coat-hanger?

lets get started.




so get your curtain hook/ring and pop it onto the horizontal part of the coat-hanger





once you've got it in, it should just sit nicely on the bar





now get your scarf ready..

ive got one of my favourites -
my purple scarf ($5)

[purple is my favourite colour]




okay, now get one end of the scarf





and loop the end of the scarf through the curtain hook



done! you've now have your own scarf collection storage

repeat the process, by adding more scarves.

nice and neat! plus you can put it into your closet and it'll only take up one coat hanger's room.

enjoy!
