Scarf Hoarders Unite {4 easy ways to organize your scarves}

Scarves.  Goodness gracious I LOVE me some scarves! I remember wearing scarves about 8 years ago teaching junior high students who relentlessly made fun of these funny looking things around my neck.  And I remember telling those shiny little faces, “You don’t know warmth until you know a good scarf!” Scarves are still used for warmth, but now are a huge fashion piece!  My scarf hoarding reached its peak last Christmas.  It was a bundle of colors and fabrics and fringe all rolled into a big MESS!!  I set out looking for a way to help me organize these scarves so that I could see them displayed in all their glory.  If you are like me and are tired of rummaging through your plethora of scarves…keep reading.  Here are 4 easy and INEXPENSIVE ways to organize your scarves!  Oh and you’re welcome!

(All organizational methods were purchased at Dollar General.)

1.  Hanger with Shower Hooks.

Pros: I have hung my scarves over hangers before, but having the hooks to loop them through made the scarves look more appealing and easily visible.  This method can also hold MANY scarves.

Cons:  When looping infinity scarves it became less neat and more puffy.  Thick scarves were a tight squeeze through the hooks and were bulky.  If your hanger starts to droop in the middle from the weight, add another hanger to the hooks.

2.  Flower Scarf Holder.

Pros:  You can hang your scarves in style (for all of your other closeted clothes to see…I suppose).  Thin scarves are perfect for these lil beauties and it easily fits amongst your other clothes that are hung up.

Cons:  You can only fit 6 scarves per flower.  If you have thick infinity scarves this is not the method for you.  It was as if I was squeezing a watermelon into a hole designed for a lemon.  Get my point?


3.  Over the Door Hanger.

Pros:  The amount of scarves you can drape over the hooks is astounding.  Your scarves are easily visible and this method is great for people who dread hanging stuff back up (raising my hand..that’s me).  You literally just drape it over the hook and you’re DONE!  This is also great for….wait for it….THICK and thin scarves!!!

Cons:….I’m trying to think of a con I found….perhaps it has to go on a door rather than hanging up in your closet?? (I say hang on the back of your closet door!)

Over The Door

4.  Sling Arm Slack Rack.

Pros: NEATNESS!!! This was my dream come true of organized scarves!  This rack is able to sling out one of the arms to drape over your straight or infinity scarves, thick or thin!  As you drape over your scarves you’ll notice a pileup of the bottoms of the scarves.  No worries!  Just turn it around and you’ll be able to view a sneak peak of each scarf hung!  It’s a beautiful sight, isn’t it!

Cons: You’ll notice this method requires a bit of space (from the amount of scarves it can hold).  You can hang it in your closet or hang on the back of your closet door (like in the picture).  This might take an extra 3 seconds of your time to neatly hang your scarf back up after wearing, but it’s worth it!

Swing Arm

Just because you have 32 scarves doesn’t mean you need to clean them out, heck no!  It simply means you need to organize those beauties so they can be displayed in all their {cotton, jersey, wool, cashmere, or chiffon} glory!!!

  1. I have a ton of tank tops! I use the Slack Rack for my tank tops too (just folded and hanging in half over the arms). Saved an entire drawer and makes it so much easier to just grab a tank and go!

    • Nikki, that is a fantastic idea! I too have tons of tank tops! Might have to buy another slack rack for them! Thanks for the idea!!!

  2. I have mounted towel bars in my closet then put cute shower rings on them. Each one holds about 12 scarves and it makes my closet look so pretty!
