What to do with all the scarves you have tumbled together in a drawer or basket. If you are one of those who can’t be asked, to neatly fold every item and secure them from unravelling into a mess, then we have a few ideas for you. These inventive suggestions from scarf world, are ideas for anyone who lives in limited space and needs to be creative with their storage .
Make yourself some personalised hangers, using an adaption of the traditional coat hanger. Use wooden ones, and even paint them up to look more attractive. Buy yourself a set of shower curtain rings that are large enough to loop the scarves through. String them on to the bar of the hanger and you will find that you can drape ten or fifteen scarves from just one of them. You could put them in the wardrobe with your other clothes, or make a colourful feature of them hanging from the inside of a door.
Screw a panel of wood,that you can decorate, to a cupboard wall or back of a door, and glue a row of wooden clothes pegs to it, personalise them if you wish. One scarf per peg and you will have a very decorative wall hanging as well as an easy way to store the scarves without them getting creased. Another variation would be to use bungee straps instead of pegs if you wanted to drape the scarves, rather than have them being pinched by the clothes pegs. Just cut the large clasps off and glue or pin the ends to a board, which you can paint in funky colours.
Try a set of interesting door knobs, each one different, but big enough to hold the scarf in place. Reproduction antique knobs can be purchased quite cheaply, and would make an interesting retro feature.
Collect interesting individual hooks, and arrange them randomly on a back board that could be cut to a pattern. Paint each one a different colour and hang one scarf on each of them.
Smallish woven straw baskets can be fitted to the wall, in a vertical line or random pattern. You can keep all manner of personal items of clothing in different ones. These splashes of colour will look like baskets of spices from a distance.
If you are lucky enough to find an old wooden ladder, cut it down to about four or five steps length. Sand and varnish or paint it with interesting designs and colours, then screw it to the inside wall or door of your cupboard. There will be space behind each rung allowing you to drape all your scarves over them.
As you can see there are a lot of possibilities, and you may no doubt have your own ideas as well. Experiment and be creative, it can be a lot of fun finding a solution to hanging items. Please take time to look at our wonderful range of scarves; we may have just what you are looking for.
