I love my scarves, but it can be hard to find just the right one when they’re wadded up on a shelf. Enter the scarf organizing hanger, which provides space for at least a dozen scarves so you always know where to find your favorite accessory. Not a scarf-wearer? You can also use this organizer for belts or ties. This is an easy project that will take you about twenty minutes to complete.
- One package of round plastic shower curtain rings, $1
- Something to tie with (ribbon, yarn, etc.), on hand or $1
- A hanger, on hand
Total: $1 and up
I got the shower curtain ringsin the bathroom supplies section of my dollar store, and I chose to use shower curtain rings because I like that you can open them, making it easier to slip your scarf into the ring. I used ribbon to tie the rings together because that’s what I had on hand. If you use ribbon, I recommend using the thinnest ribbon you have, but better than ribbon would be yarn or maybe even something like zip ties (you can get them in the tools/auto supply section at your dollar store). I just used a hanger we had on hand.
To make it:
Lay two rings out side by side with the openings on the same side. Tie together. Add another ring to the chain to make a series of three rings. Make four sets like this.
After you have your sets of three rings, put them together back to back, so the openings are at opposite ends. Tie the backs together, then tie each ring to its neighboring rings. You should have what vaguely resembles one of those plastic ring things from a six-pack of soda. Use the remaining sets of three rings to make another “six-pack.”
Tie the six-packs to the hanger securely. Insert scarves and start organizing!
Note: If you use ribbon, you might want to sear the ends of ribbon with an open flame.
Another note: You could fit more six-packs on one hanger, but I’m not sure if the hanger would be strong enough to hold more than twelve scarves. Just a thought. You be the judge, though!

Awesome!!! I have a gazillion scarves just thrown all over the place. Definitely going to have to make one of these.
I just have mine all knotted loosely onto a coat hanger but this idea is way better :D
Nice – I’m always knitting scarves but end up wearing the same one all the time because the rest are stuffed in the cupboard somewhere!
Great idea and looks pretty – almost Channel inspired with the pink rings tied together with little black bows.
@Kathryn, aww, that’s so nice of you to say. :) Made my day.
What a great idea. My scarves are a mess on a shelf in the closet. I could also use this idea to hang ties I collect to repurpose for projects currently working on. Thank you so much for the idea!
I kept my old shower round hooks, even though my parents insisted i throw them out. Thanks to your blog i know exactly what i’m going to do with them now!

This is awesome! Wonderful idea!
What a great idea…you could most likely dress it up with a fancy hangar and prettier shower curtain hooks…Love it!
Just hook the rings onto themselves or dirctly onto the hanger and forget the ribbon if you don’t have any. Then loop the scarf around it’s self on the ring.
Whoa, that’s just such a great idea to keep those scarves organized..simple yet effective, this is how ideas should ideally be!!
Excellent idea! I knit and crochet scarves, and have them draping over hangers. I love this idea! Now I can see them.
This is cute. I featured it in a scarf holder round up over at Storage Geek with full credit and link back. Cheers!
I am so making this for my sister for Christmas! She has become a scarf fanatic! I’m thinking about using one of those flock-covered hangers in black, red ribbon and maybe some clear shower curtain rings. Thanks for the great idea!
