DIY Scarf Organization

While spending one of many hours perusing through Pinterest I stumbled across this pin, from from the desk, and really thought it was a great idea. I mean it sure beats the way I was organizing scarves before.

Total cost of project: $4.00

Lessons Learned:
need a wooden hanger... or split them up onto 3 hangers (which is what I did)

-shower curtain rings

$0.00     scarves
$0.00     hangers
$4.00     shower curtain rings ($1.29 x 3)
$4.00    Total


1. Hook the hooks on the hanger
2. Thread scarves through!
3. Fin

before: all my scarves
As you can see, I have a lot of scarves, and they all end up on one side of the belt rack... when they hang up in my closet its even worse... it just pushes all my clothes to one side.

Any who, love my new scarf holder!!

Let me know if you have any questions!

1. Cut a square of fabric and an extra circle a little smaller than the lid see step 6
2. Remove the filling from the inside of the tomato push pin and place it in the center of the square
3. Begin to push through hollow lid of the mason jar using the second part of the lid.
