I don’t know about you, but my scarf collection is a little out of control. I’ve tried several frustrating ways to store them, and despite my best efforts, I’m always left with a mountain of scarves piled on my chair in the bedroom.
I came up with a solution to this problem by making this simple leather chain to hang by the door for guests or in our closet. It was easy to make and only requires a few materials:
I used two straps of leather (the kind you can buy to make a belt), post & cap rivets, and a rivet setter. You will also need a hammer or rubber mallot, and a pair of scissors. Start by cutting the leather straps into equal** lengths.
A leather hole punch would be a helpful tool for this project, but I don’t have one so I just used my trusty ol’ shears.
Use your scissors to make a hole in each end of a strap. Place the post rivet into one end and make a cuff, putting the post through the other end as well. Place your cap rivet on top of the post.
Use your rivet setter and rubber mallot to hammer the rivet into place. Also, please don’t judge my “manicure”.
I was hoping that this method of hanging would cut down on bulk in my closet. It’s definitely a little bulky, but not wide like many scarf organizers, so I like that aspect. What do you think? Do you have any closet organizing secrets??
**you and I both know I’m basically incapable of making anything “equal” in length.
