It doesn't look like much but it takes care of this entire mess of scarves in my closet:
Here's what you need:
-various sizes of the inner hoop of an embroidery hoop
-acrylic paint and paintbrush
-felt and ribbon
-ruler, pencil, scissors
-glue and craft glue (not shown)
-optional: sparkle mod podge, rhinestones, glitter!
1) Paint both the inside and outside as well as the sides of all of your embroidery hoops.
|I use spools of thread to keep the wet paint off the table while they dry.|
5) Cut a length of ribbon or other trim about 15" long.
6) Also cut a rectangle of felt about 2" X 3".
7)Switch to your hot glue gun for the next step. You'll need to make sure all those hoops are really secure. With your felt rectangle under the hoops, layer in the ribbon and glue it all together with hot glue.
Just look at all that space. The felt helps the scarves not to slip while protecting them from the rough wood of the hoops.
|Yes, I still have too many scarves,|
but now I can see them all!
Do you have a scarf addiction? How do you store your stash? Leave a comment and let us all know~
Your scarf collection looks a lot like mine! Definitely an addiction. My problem is I like to crochet them, plus when I see a cute one in a store I just can't pass it up.
I just use plastic hangers and drape several scarves along the straight part at the bottom, but I've also seen (on Pinterest of course) an idea to hang shower curtain rings on a hanger and then hang a scarf on each ring.
I love scarves, i might have to utilize this idea if I ever have a closet again. Oh the lament of a woman living in the worlds smallest apartment
This is so cute. I need to make one of these, I have tons of scarves. Great idea. I have a link party on Wednesdays, and I would love it if you would link this and any other posts. It is called Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party. It runs from Wednesday to Sundays.
I hope to see you there. I am your newest follower, and I would love for your to follow me also. Have a great Day.

What a great idea! I definitely need to make one of these for my daughter. Her scarves are everywhere. Thanks for sharing the great tutorial. :)
My roomies and I used to use a standing coat hanger. It worked pretty well. We've also just hung them all along a railing on our upper floor. It looks really cool, but only works in a student house full of girls though!
Super idea - I think I shall have to have a go at this as currently my scarves are languishing inside the large jug of my washstand set and I have to rummage to find them!
Really cute! And this tells me I need more scarves :)
Brilliant--thanks so much for sharing!
