Welcome to Day Five of “Five Days of Fall”. Instead of my usual one post this week I’m writing five, each with a different fall-themed idea. Nothing fancy, just some simple, inexpensive ways I cozy things up around here when the leaves start to turn.
In my house Fall marks the end of shaving season and the start of scarf season. So I thought it would be the perfect time to share my Upcycled Scarf Organizer.
I made it out of these two unexpected items.
The idea came when I was shopping for a scarf and realized the retail display rack was the perfect storage solution. It was nothing but a series of “pegs” and plastic rings but it held tons of scarves in a small space. So I set out to recreate it in my closet.
The plastic rings were easy to find. The clearance tag was a bonus.
The pegs were more of a challenge. I considered building something or using a pegboard and straight hooks like this. But then I found an unused wine glass rack stashed in the basement! (Similar to this one.) Who says hoarding is a bad thing?
Put those two seemingly random pieces together and you’ve got storage for 24 scarves in a 2 foot wide space.
Oh and in case you’re not sure how to loop the scarves onto the rings (I wasn’t at first), here ya go.
I’ve been using this hanging rack for a couple years and it still works great. Don’t you just love it when the simplest solution is the best one?
