Ali Manno helps us unravel the mess of scarves.

MATERIALS:

  • Wooden gym rings
  • Velvet ribbon 1 ½” wide
  • Straight pins
  • Fabri-tac
  • Fabric scissors
  • X-Acto knife
  • Double capped rivets with set
  • Grommets with set
  • Hammer
  • Cup hooks with anchors
  • Power drill

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. 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.

2. Loop the end of the ribbon around the ring to meet itself, about 2” from the ring.

3. Place one straight pin horizontally to hold the loop as close to the ring as possible.

4. Apply Fabri-tac to the back of the ribbon flap and squeeze to securely flatten.

5. Use an X-Acto knife to poke two small holes for the rivets equally spaced from the edges of the ribbon.

6. 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.

7. Measure how long you want the strap to hang from the ring and cut it. If you are making multiple, write the measurements down.

8. Apply Fabri-tac to the raw edge and fold it down to hem. Hold for a few seconds to allow it to set.

9. Use an X-Acto knife to cut an “X” into the ribbon 1” below the top of the ribbon.

10. 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.

11. 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”.

12. Insert the cup hooks into the wall where you want to hang the organizer.

13. 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.
