Welcome back for the third (and final) installment of Storage Solutions: Scarves and Hijabs. Parts one and two can be found here and here. This last round up is a few DIYs and a few ready made.
First up is my own solution. I hung a vintage chain belt vertically and use the links to hold scarves. The belt links are perfectly sized. I can hang multiple light scarves in one link or folded winter weight scarves. (Please don’t laugh at my sad belt collection. Please don’t laugh at the fact that I called it a collection.)
This fabric hanging scarf holder by Elizabeth of A Box Living is great because it is simple construction made with readily available materials. It is also easily customizable for your space.
Everyone has a hanger from a dry cleaner don’t they? At least one? Well, if you do you could always do what Instructables user whatthisgodwrought did with hers and turn it into a multi scarf holder.
Believe it or not this gorgeous wooden one is a DIY option. Full plans and how to at Home-Dzine.
If you haven’t found a DIY option that suits your needs below are a few very reasonably priced ready made options.
This butterfly one is adorable and at $6.98 on Amazon you really can’t beat the price.
I am a sucker for a sleek wooden design at this ten hole wooden scarf holder fits that bill. For $8.01 on Amazon you could afford to buy one for your mud room and bedroom closets.
Can you do a storage round up without an Ikea product showing up at least once? Well you might be able to but why would you want to? The Kompliment multi-use hanger is a steal at $7.99.
Well I hope you have been able to find a few storage solutions to help you with your scarves, Hijabs and pashminas. I had no idea there were so many fabulous ideas out there. As usual I hope you share any of your own solutions. You can submit photos, descriptions and links to email@example.com.
Hello and welcome back to part two the three part series of Storage Solutions: Scarves, Pashminas & Hijabs
In this installment I will share with you DIY scarf organizers, but all of them are made with shower curtain rings. You probably did not think there were enough shower curtain scarf holders to warrant an entire post but let me tell you if I felt like really dragging it out I could probably have found enough for two. For serious. And since shower curtain rings are so readily available and cheap I thought this would be a fun post! Lets go from easiest to most complicated.
First up, this super simple chain made by Brook Z. It is a version of AttackCat’s original Easy Peasy Scarf Curtain/hanger. I love the idea of using your scarf collection as a bohemian sort of curtain. Love.
Next up is this super cute holder made by attaching shower curtain rings to a wide piece of ribbon. This one was made by Jen of The Borrowed Abode.
This cute little number in Chanel pink & black is made with some shower curtain rings, some ribbon and a clothes hanger. Cheap but cute and clever is always a winning combination. You can see the full how to by Heather @ Dollar Store Crafts
This one is perhaps my favourite but I think that might just be because I am partial to anything that uses an S hook effectively. This number made by Deb ofThe (mis)Adventures of a SFH stealthily uses IKEA S hooks and a towel bar and stainless steel curtain hooks from Target to create this chic scarf holding unit.
PLastic chains realy go far in the storage world. I think I might have featured this in my Cheap Dorm Storage post. Shower curtain rings, plastic chain and a caribaneer make a customizable scarf holder that can be increased at any time. Full how to by Luminesia @ Instructables.
Finally, if you have some time and pretty fabric you have been dying to use, you can always make a holder similar to this one by Jen of The Borrowed Abode. A “Kicked up a notch” version of the hanging ribbon and ring organizer above. Visit the link for a full how to.
And there you have it folks. Six scarf organizers made from shower curtain rings. All fantastic. I hope you enjoyed them and I hope you come back for part three where I’ll share a mess of hanging organizers some to DIY and some to buy. Cheers, Melissa.
mydilgoesmmm asked:Hello!! Firstly, let me just take a moment to say, I love your blog! Secondly, I need some storage creativity from you. Basically, I have a top shelf on my wardrobe which is ram-packed with scarves/hijabs. Its just thrown in and its a complete mess. I need your help on how I can make this more organised, etc. The shelf is 73(l)x29(w)x56(d). Please help and make me organised again lol.
Great question! And let me just say that there are a lot more options out there than I thought there would be! So many in fact that I will have to do this post in three parts. I know, whodda thought?
Since you mention that your scarves are on shelf I’ll share the few non-hanging options I found in this post.
My initial answer to storage solutions for anything on an open shelf is baskets. This way, even if you still throw them in the basket, each basket is a smaller pile to dig through. You could go a step further and label them like Jen of Organized & Clean Design did, but you could label colours and/or fabrics.
This clever bit of thrifty storage was made with only loo paper tubes and a drawer. You easily do the same with a large, low profile basket. The one pictured above is the brain child of Instructables user alialexander.
Alternatively you could wrap your scarves around paper towel tubes and secure with rubber bands like they do over at Real Simple.
I love the thought of using drawer dividers, but I haven’t actually employed one yet. I know, what kind of Storage Geek could I be without one but it is true. The walls of the honey comb organizer are not very tall, and I know this wouldn’t work for shawls and bulky scarves but it is an option for the thinner silkier ones. You can get one through Amazon here for $12.99.
Hope that helps! Be sure to check back for parts two (DIY hanging) and three (DIY and pre-made hanging). And as always, I encourage you to share with us your solutions! Cheers, Melissa.
