Ali Manno helps us unravel the mess of scarves.
DIY Scarf Organizer
- Wooden gym rings
- Velvet ribbon 1 ½” wide
- Straight pins
- Fabric scissors
- X-Acto knife
- Double capped rivets with set
- Grommets with set
- Cup hooks with anchors
- Power drill
- With the ribbon still on the spool, apply line of Fabri-tac along the raw edge of the ribbon and it fold over to hem.
- Loop the end of the ribbon around the ring to meet itself, about 2” from the ring.
- Place one straight pin horizontally to hold the loop as close to the ring as possible.
- Apply Fabri-tac to the back of the ribbon flap and squeeze to securely flatten.
- Use an X-Acto knife to poke two small holes for the rivets equally spaced from the edges of the ribbon.
- Feed the rivets into the holes, place the caps on and hammer with the set to secure. PRO TIP: Hammer on a super sturdy surface like a concrete floor or steel block.
- Measure how long you want the strap to hang from the ring and cut it. If you are making multiple, write the measurements down.
- Apply Fabri-tac to the raw edge and fold it down to hem. Hold for a few seconds to allow it to set.
- Use an X-Acto knife to cut an “X” into the ribbon 1” below the top of the ribbon.
- Insert the grommet, place in the set and place the grommet plate on top. Use the grommet set and hammer to secure the grommet. PRO TIP: Hammer on a super sturdy surface like a concrete floor or steel block.
- Repeat steps 1-10 to create as many scarf rings as you want with various strap lengths. Ours are staggered at 36”, 30” and 24”.
- Insert the cup hooks into the wall where you want to hang the organizer.
- Hang the scarf rings, organize and enjoy! PRO TIP: Fabri-tac should be allowed to dry for a full 24 hours before it cures and holds weight.
